OUR THREE MAIN EFFORTS

This is How We Invest Our Time & Talents in this Beautiful Galaxy of Ours

ACoFH_Logo_750x400 Since 2000, as Children of Fallen Soldiers, COFS_Logo_TextAndServiceIcons_OnWhite_1kwe have been serving the kids who have lost a parent in the US Military. In 2013, we began rebranding as America’s Children of Fallen Heroes so we can include the children of fallen Firefighters and Law Enforcement under our umbrella of service.

 

OurSolution

We are currently on our On Behalf of a Grateful Nation tour, criss-crossing the US collecting messages of encouragement for the children of fallen heroes for our book, “On Behalf of a Grateful Nation”.

Those messages of encouragement will also be included in the memorial for the children of fallen heroes, planned for development beginning in 2017.

We have declared war on hopelessness and we are daring all youth (27 & younger) to dream. We dare them to expect great things from themselves and to build, live, and create legacies from their dreams.

With the help of Big Air Events, we tested our first Dare to Dream event on September 14th, 2013 and it was a mind melting success.

LAUNCH PLANNED FOR 2018

We have had the honor of working with a multitude of brilliant youth service organizations (YSOs) and an extremely common need for support has called us to action.

The IYSR wil…

  • Create opportunities for connection & communication between YSOs serving the same demographics within a local area.
  • Highlight services and opportunities of which YSOs may not be aware.
  • Highlight efforts achieving extraordinary results, so they can be replicated anywhere in the world.
  • Marketing Training & Support
  • Fundraising Training & Support
  • Special development support for smaller YSOs achieving extraordinary results.

These needs became most apparent when we began planning our first Dare to Dream event in 2013. Our Dare to Dream events draw youth to local area events through adrenaline “X-Games like” action sports with the intention of:

  • exposing them to hope & empowering them to have hope for a better future,
  • daring them to believe in themselves,
  • and providing support for their personal dream development process.

The “Exposing them to hope…” process involves local YSOs making their services known to youth while they are at the Dare to Dream event. Attendees walk through a massive HOPE Tent to enter the event, where they are presented with assistance addressing many of the giants that are at war for their hope for a better future like:

  • Homelessness
  • Hunger
  • Mental illness
  • Abuse
  • Suicide prevention
  • Dependency assistance
  • etc… you get the picture

Well, while our Dare to Dream teams where engaging with local YSOs in preparation for our first event, we noticed that many of these awesome folks are so busy passionately serving their targeted youth, they had little or no time to lift their heads to discover what was around them. Many times, we saw complimentary YSOs 10 minutes from each other that had never met. Thus, the birth of the International Youth Service Registry.

OUR STORY

Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Heading

1996 – Quietly Working is born

Back in 1996, the idea of Quietly Working was born. Our dream was to build a creative agency that would quietly work in the background, building the dreams of others.

Funny… magically, our own dreams quickly began to blossom.


1996 – To the Greatest Clients in the Galaxy

As we have always said…

 

“If you are a Quietly Working customer, you are the most important person in our business. You are not dependent upon us, we are dependent on you. You are not an interruption of our work, you are the purpose for it. You do us a favor when you use us, we are not doing you a favor by serving you. You come to us with your needs, it is our job to fulfill them. You pay our salaries…without you we would have to close our doors. You deserve the most courteous attention we can give and it is our honor to make your dreams come true.”

 

If it were not for our most awesome customers, we would not have had the opportunity to be living our dreams today of serving the youth of the world.


 

2000 – The Quietly Working Foundation is born

In the year 2000, business was boom’n and we knew it was time to use our powers for good. We started The Quietly Working Foundation, serving our smallest national recourses. Little did we know, our lives would never be the same. Since those first days, we have impacted millions of lives and can’t wait to see what adventures tomorrow holds.


 

2012 – America’s Children of Fallen Heroes

In 2012, we began the process of rebranding Children of Fallen Soldiers to America’s Children of Fallen Heroes, so we could include fallen Firefighters and Law Enforcement under our umbrella of services.


March 25th, 2013 – Chaplain TIG Dies

On March 25th, 2013, Chaplain TIG died during a procedure when a laser burnt through his heart. He was gone for a little under 7 minutes before an extraordinary combat Marine cut in, plugged the hole with his finger, and eventually brought him back. This isn’t the place to go into detail, but you can read more here.

This experience was pivotal in the development of and the inspiration for our War on Hopelessness effort and Dare to Dream tour.


April 5th, 2013 – We Loes Matthew Warren to Suicide

Proof that things of beauty can come from life’s most tragic pains.

On April 5th, 2013 we lost the dear Matthew Warren to suicide after his long battle with mental illness and depression. Chaplain TIG was recovering from his experience when he was told about Matthew and it did something. As he explains it,

“I believe God put a holy anger against hopelessness in me that day. At that moment, I knew why I was brought back to life and how I would be spending the remainder of my days. I declared War on Hopelessness and started building an army.”


April, 2013 – We Declare War on Hopelessness

We have declared war on hopelessness and we are daring all youth (27 & younger) to dream. We dare them to expect great things from themselves and to recognize, build, live, and create legacies from their dreams.


 

September 14th, 2013 – 1st Dare to Dream Event

With the help of Big Air Events, we tested our first Dare to Dream event on September 14th, 2013 and it was a fabulous success.


2014 – Launched the On Behalf of a Grateful Nation Tour

Wheels up! We are hard at work collecting messages of encouragement for the kids who have lost a hero parent.

If you haven’t written yours yet, do it today.

 


2016 – Publishing Vol. 1 of On Behalf of a Grateful Nation

Get you EOAs in before 2016 ends, because that’s when we begin publishing volume 1 of the “On Behalf of a Grateful Nation” series. We want our kids to be absolutely overwhelmed by the love and support this world has to offer them and is expressed page by page.

2017 – Launch of the America’s Children of Fallen Heroes Memorial Tour

Planning for this labor of love began in 2003. We will launch a 5 year international tour in 2017, culminating for the 20th anniversary of 9/11.


2018 – Launch of The International Youth Services Registry (IYSR)

2018 is our targeted launch for the IYSR. We have had the honor of working with a multitude of brilliant youth service organizations (YSOs) and an extremely common need for support has called us to action.

… and into the future…
What will be our legacy?
