Singer and songwriter Savannah Maddison joined us live to talk about her soldier letter-writing campaign, ‘Savannah’s Soldiers.’
‘Savannah’s Soldiers,’ started in 2012, will be achieving 501c3 status in 2014 so that the organization can grow further. Savannah has partnered with the Miami Heat, Miami Marlins, and the Professional Bull Riders to spread the word about her organization. Savannah goes around the country to schools to add awareness to the ‘Savannah’s Soldiers’ initiative. In 2013, she partnered with Simon & Schuster and Dr. Jill Biden to raise literary awareness and gave copies of Dr. Biden’s book to an entire school in Fulton, Missouri. Savannah is currently in pursuit of a 100,000 letter benchmark. She has currently exceeded 60,000 letters, and declared November 19th the official “Savannah’s Soldiers Day” for letter-writing.
