You can make magic happen for our service members and their families this holiday season.

Together we make magic happen. Not the sleight of hand kind of magic, but the magic that happens when an 18-year old Marine Corps Private walks into our USO center thousands of miles from mom and dad and all he knows. He's carrying his whole life with him, packed into his gear. He's on his way to a conflict zone. A Bob Hope USO volunteer hands him a chili dog and a can of his favorite soda and he smiles and relaxes knowing he's safe and cared for. You can donate today to continue to make the magic happen for our troops.

It's the magic that happens when a young Air Force spouse walks into our USO center, pushing a cart full of bags and a car seat, holding the hand of her young son, while wearing her infant in a baby carrier, with the family dog in tow. She just landed and now has a seven-hour layover after a transpacific flight while just trying to get to grandma and grandpa's for the holidays. A USO volunteer is there to walk them into our Family Zone, complete with children's movies, books, and a safe, no cost place to close their eyes so the kids can hopefully forget, for just awhile, how much they miss their deployed dad. You can be the magic today for this family, and thousands more, with a donation to Bob Hope USO.

It's the magic that happens when an Army retiree from the Korean War reads a letter from Bob Hope on the walls of our connection room at our USO Center. He takes a walk down memory lane and remembers how he was able to laugh, even for just a few minutes in the middle of war. You can be that magic.

It's the magic that happens when a young sailor is recognized as the hero of the game, thanks to our team and partners, and they get to experience the cheers and appreciation of tens of thousands of people in a packed stadium. And she knows her country is grateful for her service.

Right now, hundreds of thousands of service members are on the front lines of freedom. They know their children and families can count on Bob Hope USO to bring magic for the holidays. While they are deployed or stationed far from home, our volunteers are showing up with holiday gifts, turkey dinners, hot cocoa and even visits from Santa on bases and military installations, all because of supporters like you. We know what legendary entertainer Bob Hope knew. It is our responsibility to bring joy and a smile to the faces of those who put our country first, to keep us safe here at home.

Bob Hope USO works around the clock to keep our troops connected to family, home and country. Thank you for providing the critical funds we need year-round and during this holiday season so that our service members can always count on us.

Please donate today and help us make the magic happen this holiday season.

Thank you for making our troops and their families a priority, and from the entire Bob Hope USO team, I wish you and your family a joyous holiday season.
