We seek your support and participation for the construction of a Living War Memorial created out of 6847 birch trees to remember our fallen heroes of the Iraq/Afghan war which took so many lives and caused sorrow to so many families. The structure will be built adjacent to one of our top military hospitals to be a healing garden of tranquility, peace and remembrance.
We have created one special good “Karma” reward at the $450* level of which 25% of your donations will be set aside into an escrow account to be used upon completion of our fund-raising efforts to create a 501-nonprofit or merge with an existing nonprofit in order to design and create this war memorial. We also ask our supporters to donate to this fund instead of receiving material rewards.
In the center of the park will be a sublime bronze sculpture representing the fallen heroes, consisting of boots, rifle, and helmet, standing ten feet tall and will be set in a large marble black star with the names of all the fallen heroes engraved in gold surrounded by red white and blue flowers and American flags. Within this park will be about 30 benches with photos of each fallen hero transferred into a ceramic tile.
It is the intent to install LED lights in the trees so it will be a place of peace and magic at night.
Out of the funds received we will engage a well-known landscape architect with a military contract and knowhow for design and location search, and we will engage marketing professionals, and grant writers the means to raise the rest of the funding required. Additionally we will create a separate nonprofit Indiegogo campaign to insure all the funds needed for such a high quality forest of peace will be in place.
In closing we thank you for your support and participation.
