Help other military families overseas...

As you know if you've been reading my blog, I have also been a writer for Korea Ye! while here. It's a website with peer written articles dedicated to helping US military and their families navigate their way in Korea. It offers PCS tips, restaurant reviews, directions to attractions, reviews of name it and someone has either written a story or they need to!

When we first found out we were moving to South Korea, the joy of finally knowing where we were going was quickly replaced by a sense of panic. WHERE were we going? What was it like? How on Earth were we going to tell family!? I quickly scoured the internet for anything I could find on Korea and thankfully stumbled upon Korea Ye. It became "home" for me, where I'd go to find out about area customs, places to go, how to handle aspects of the move. The articles on Korea Ye, and my eventual part in writing for the site, have made our stay in Seoul soooo much easier. We owe a great deal to the site for our successful experience while here.

Heather and Joelle, the owners of the Overseas Yes family of websites, would love, Love, LOVE to be able to help more families across the globe, in places such as Bahrain, mainland Japan, Guam, and Europe. To do that though, they need some support and assistance.

They have started a 30-day Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary funds to build the websites, get writers and staff on board, and start helping families in new areas of the world.

Here's what I'm asking...can you please join me in making a donation to help other military families? If you've enjoyed reading about our adventures, have lived overseas before, and/or will possibly be heading to an overseas location in the future, please make a donation to help others and maybe even yourself. Even just $5 will help the network reach its first $5,000 goal and get Bahrain Naam up and running. Please click this link and help pay it forward:
