The veterans, citizens and businesses of South Florida (Monroe, Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties) and Tampa Bay (Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk and Pasco counties) are grateful for the sacrifice our National Guardsmen and Reservists' families are making on behalf of America.

The Goal of Operation Brave Kids is to provide $25 per month for each minor child of an activated service member during their call-up to active duty. Operation Brave Kids plans to purchase $25 gift cards from Publix - Home Depot - Toys R Us - Walgreen's, etc. and distribute them to caregivers upon request. Gift cards will be automatically sent after initial registration at any Wachovia Bank branch or any Coldwell Banker office (Monroe County).

100% of donations will go the children.
