Here is WHY A Rose of Thanks is doing this. Katy has a message in some of her songs about being positive, those who inspire us to be great, and to Live In This Moment because tomorrow is not promised and yesterday is history. Our troops, their Families, our veterans and the sacrifices they make or have made for our country is WHY we are doing this.
It all started with an Article published for A Rose of Thanks, a nonprofit I started to support our troops. It was orginally published in the Charlotte Observer. The message of the article was simple enough we would donate 2 tickes to send troops to see Katy Perry in Raleigh, NC.
Stars and Stripes picked up the article and a veteran from Abiliene TX called and said he a buddy serving in Afghanistan. He also said his buddy named his truck Katy. he said I saw your article in Stars and Stripes online & I think it would be cool to send him to the show.
I said let's do it and by the end of he week we were sending about 12 Soldiers, Veterans, and family members to see the last show in Houston on October 11, 2014.
This is going to be a memorable day, 1st we are going to take them dinner at Hard Rock Cafe and then on to see Katy in concert on for the last night of the tour. We have a few more surpirses planned but do not want them to know about.

Think about this for a minute:
10 minutes VS 24/7/365
10 minutes to write a letter to say hi and we are thinking about you, versus, the 24/7/365 life and death situations these men and women are going through everyday to defend the freedoms we enjoy.
During an hour long TV show there are between 16 and 20 minutes of commercials.
Think about this, if each one of us would take just 17 minutes a month to write a note to our troops, no serviceman or woman would ever go without receiving a piece of mail to let them know they are being thought of.
How do I know there are 16 -20 minutes of commercials? I work at night and sometimes I miss my favorite TV show Grey’s Anatomy, when I get home I watch it online and according to the timeline it is between 43-45 minutes long and there are 2 minutes of commercials online.
