What is the Military Families Story Project – Why we need YOU!
The most heartfelt and human way to say thank you to the sacrifice and bravery of our military men and women and their families! The art and treasure of storytelling, along with a caring voice, like music – is epic and timeless. Longfellow said it best: “the voice is the organ of the soul,” nothing in this world and of itself can comfort, inspire, teach and entertain, like it.
To strengthen family ties, build morale and emotional bonds, give family members 24/7 global secure access to their loved ones. Preventing one or many from ever feeling isolated or alone… before, during, or after deployment!
To give military families & Veterans across the globe, a simple more soulful way to “Tell their story” captured as a legacy gift of a lifetime, in a compelling, engaging, and emotionally interactive way!
To capture the epic power of voice, (like music) and timeless treasure of a story to: Comfort, Inspire, Teach, and Entertain.
Why we need YOU
Our mission goal for 2017: Is to deliver 300-500 digital storytelling Gift subscriptions sponsored by you – to pre deployment active, reserve Military Families, Veteran – non profit organizations on or before the 2017 Holiday – Christmas season.
*Please join us to show our men and women in uniform and their families, just how much their sacrifice is appreciated.*
Did you know less than 1 % of the United States population is currently in service to us?
Why are we doing this?
This year hundreds of New Hampshire citizen Soldiers, Marines, Airman and Coast Guard and many more active throughout our country will be activated and deployed.. In the midst of major Pentagon budget cuts, your sponsorship will enable us to bring this special gift program to our local military families and veterans to help expand it into a national model for all service branches throughout the country, active or retired. Now military service members and families from anywhere in the world, with any phone or online connection, will be able to securely create, capture, and access their family stories to comfort, entertain, teach and inspire listeners for generations to come. We hope to see your company’s name attached to this wonderful, creative initiative in support of our military.

Our history of success
May 2010: Military Families story Project was conceived per the request from a wife of a seacoast NH Citizen Airman.
Claire D. challenged The Voice Library to get local sponsors to provide Gift Subscriptions for Military families and distribute them thru “The Pease Greeters” to emotionally bond, and support those men, women, and families during deployment and beyond. Over # 200 subscriptions were gifted at that time. Seen on FOX News 25
Then in Sept 2010: TheVoiceLibrary.net was honored to be invited to the Pentagon by Col. Philbrook of the Suicide Prevention Task Force In review; our service was directed to be of best serve military families – early in the pre deployment timeline.
Dec. 2011-16 #742 Gift Subscriptions distributed through #9 military based family organizations and non profits.
