STAND UP FOR THE FLAG PROUDLY SUPPORTS CHILDREN OF FALLEN MILITARY &
We both honor our country and our fallen heroes
Mecham Field, TEXAS – Sept 27, 2016 – Tim Pollard, Fort Worth-area founder of Stand Up For The
Flag, is taking “pay it forward” to a new level. Pollard recently announced that a portion of profits from
merchandise sales will go to the mission of Colorado Springs-based nonprofit, Angels of America’s
Fallen (AOAF) - supporting children of America’s fallen military and first responders.
“Stand Up For The Flag is honored to announce our support of Angels of America's Fallen, a nonprofit
organization that honors the fallen while supporting their children,” said Pollard.
Pollard’s profound mission to raise awareness of the nation’s enduring symbol while donating a portion of
profits to AOAF is a collaboration of similar interests. Pollard heard that AOAF currently has a waiting
list of children because demand has outpaced fundraising…he then committed to partnering with AOAF
AOAF, a growing national nonprofit organization, currently supports more than 300 children of the fallen
across the nation. The nonprofit directly funds healthy and developmental activities for children whose
military or first responder parent gave all.
“When I heard that Tim Pollard was moved by our commitment to the children of the fallen and how
motivated he was to help our mission by donating a portion of his profits to help us support more
children, I was speechless,” remarked Joe Lewis, president and chief executive officer of AOAF. “We
couldn’t do what we do without the support of individuals and businesses like Tim and Stand Up For The
Flag. We are truly humbled by his heart and initiative.”
Those wishing to stand with these two organizations in helping fund healthy developmental activities for
the children of the fallen, are encouraged to visit the website, http://standupfortheflag.com.
