But if you are one of over 1,500 donors to VA Puget Sound Fisher House, the "what did you do today" question can be answered in a whole other way. You scooped ice cream for "Banana Split Day" and gave two hours of chair massage to tired, tight necks and shoulders. You gave little Carly crayons and Legos to keep her entertained while her mommy is visiting grandpa. You tended the produce garden, abundant with strawberries and lettuce, to make Vicky's lunch. And you shaped what used to be lawn into a verdant, private space where Beth can listen to the breeze in the leaves and the calming music of the fountain. You treated families to dinner out. You made a trip to Costco, did 10 loads of laundry and bought 3 new DVD players. In short, every day your financial gifts directly touch the lives of our Veteran and military families.You provide peace and respite to an average of 50 families a month, families who might otherwise not even be able to be near their patient. But because you care, they have a home.
What did you do today? You changed a life.
