John Grove Memorial
- Click here to visit Bless the Children's website.
Reaching out to our PAVE LOW family. John Grove's legacy lives on and not just in the PAVE LOW world. John helped fund "Bless the Children", an international organization helping the poorest children of the world who are living under extreme conditions. He did this with his own retirement check! After his passing, several other caring PAVE guys stepped in to help out.
In short, we're looking for annual donations in order to provide a minimum of $2000 a month for this organization.
With your help (en mass), this is easily achievable. Some have already chipped in $100/month, but with your lump sum or recurring donation of ANY amount, we can help keep John's legacy alive by helping these children.

Great Cause to Donate to:
The Air Commando Foundation is proudly raising funds in support of Gold Star Team Adventures (GSTA). GSTA provides adventure camps to the surviving youth of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who have lost their lives in the line of duty. These camps are designed to promote and enable healing, foster enduring relationships and develop character and leadership skills.
Your donation is tax deductible in accordance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax ID: 59-3270780.
