RUN XXI Remember Understand Never Forget!
In 2017 I started my Sawyer's Stockings Project when my Big Brother Kylar was stationed overseas in the Marine Corps and wasn't coming home for Christmas. That first year I shipped/delivered 2217 "Sawyer's Stockings" filled with Holiday Cheer to those who would not be home with their families for Christmas around the world . With YOUR amazing support the project continued and grew and in 2018 we shipped over 5588 stockings, our 3rd year in 2019 we sent 10,221 and in our 4th year in 2020 we sent an amazing 10,334 stockings in the middle of a worldwide pandemic!
In 2018 I personally delivered 1000 of my Sawyers Stockings the week of Christmas to Washington DC and handed them out to Our Wounded Warriors, Department Of Veteran's Affairs, Veterans Serving In Congress and Senate, Our Nation's Honor Guard, Caisson Platoons, Veteran Staff at Arlington National Cemetery, and The Guards At The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, I was also given the honor to lay my 9th wreath to Honor Our Fallen Heroes for Christmas. Since that 2nd year I have now laid 11 wreaths at The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier.
In 2019, I traveled to The Gulf Coast and handed out 1000 stockings to Keesler Air Force Base, our Coast Guard Station in Gulfport and handed out our 10,000th stocking for the season at the Seabee Base in Gulfport Mississippi. In 2020, because of the pandemic we did not travel and shipped all stockings.
Our "Sawyer's Stockings" project is our biggest and most expensive project we do each year. It is so rewarding to get pictures and emails and messages from our Heroes all around the world, thanking our non-profit organization for thinking of them when they cannot be with their families. I have a wonderful supportive family, community and amazing grass roots following who have generously helped me with this incredible project as well as my many others throughout the year.
I am asking everyone to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE my project with everyone you know!

Sawyer's Kids With A Cause is a 501c3 Nonprofit Organization.
In the past 5 years I have I held bake sales regularly to raise money to annually ship ove25,000 goodie filled care packages to our Troops here in the US and bases located around the World to all branches of service. I ship in April to children of those whose parents are in the military during Month of the Military Child. We send "Hearts For My Heroes" for Valentines Day, we ship "Star Spangled Smiles" for Independence Day and my now "World Famous" Miss Sawyer's Peanut Butter Brownies year round!
100% of my bake sales proceeds fund my care packages filled with goodies to our Troops.
I also have my "Flowers For Freedom" project where I visit cemeteries and place yellow roses on the headstones of our Fallen Heroes. The yellow rose stands for "Freedom, Remember and I Care" On my 9th birthday I laid 1200 yellow roses at Arlington National Cemetery and 1000 more the following week at The National Cemetery in Biloxi, Mississippi.
For Memorial Day each year I hand out packets of "Forget Me Not" seeds to those attending events to plant and remember a loved one currently serving our country, or in honor of a loved one lost that re-seed and come up year after year as a reminder.
I will be placing 1200 Yellow Roses on Tombstones at Arlington this year on my 11th Birthday!
Since March 2018, I also have hand painted and personally handed out almost 5000 of my "Hero Rocks" to Our Veterans, those actively serving in our Military and to our Law Enforcement and First Responders to let them know they are indeed Heroes to me and to Thank Them For Their Service And My Safety. My Hero Rocks have traveled the world with many deployed soldiers, are carried daily nationwide by thousands of War Veterans and even have been buried with My Heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for my Freedom. My handmade token of appreciation has made an impact in the lives of thousands of Veterans.
Thank You For Supporting My Passion For Our Troops!
