Carol Alt loves her Shining Service Bracelet. She wears it proudly because she supports our women in the military. It’s a beautiful way to show you care, not only on the holidays, but every day of the year.
Our bracelets are made in America for Americans. They are beautiful black and clear Czech crystal, designed by one of New York’s best jewelry designers Patty Tobin. We are committed to giving back to the fabulous women who are the inspiration for Shining Service Worldwide.
Buy One – Wear One to show your support. Proceeds from the bracelets help fund our fabulous Makeover Missions and our new Power of Ten Mentoring Program launching in January.
Women in the military serve us – now it’s our turn to serve them.
The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says,”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
Michelle Obama was on Oprah yesterday talking about new support for the military and I was glued to the set. As all of you know, supporting our combat cougars has become very important to me. Too often, they are not recognized for the unbelievable sacrifices they are making to keep us safe.
On the show yesterday, Tom Brokaw made a very interesting point. He said, "one percent of the population are putting their lives on the line to protect 99% of the population". That's pretty amazing! He asked Oprah how many Americans know the name of one person serving in the military. Oprah admitted she didn't. So there you go. These heroes are taken for granted, because for us, it's business as usual. We have to unite our country in support.
Another forgotten group are the wives and mothers of the men serving. They are heroes too and have the herculian task of taking care of the home, finances, children and being there for other military families when they are needed. And, of course, there is the everyday concerns, wondering if their husbands, sons, & daughters are safe. One woman put it this way - we bear no rank but have one of the hardest jobs in the military.
