On the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, Honor the Lives Lost and Every Child Left Behind by Terrorism and Military Service Since that Day.

Carol and her two sons, John and Nick, lost their hero on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 when NYPD Officer John D'Allara of the elite Emergency Service Unit immediately responded to the terrorist attacks.

Because of caring people like you who knew you had to do something for families like Carol and her boys after the unimaginable loss of their husband and father, Tuesday's Children could be there for them in the wake of this terrible tragedy.

The power of your support is the power of community – let children know you care and want to help ease the emptiness of their painful new reality without a mom or dad. Surround them with our Tuesday's Children family – expertly trained staff and volunteers, peers that have experienced similar loss and understand how they are feeling, and YOU!
To move through grief, kids can rely on long-term mentors. Nick's mentor Ian continues to be a positive role model and a friend to him – someone to confide in and spend quality time with fishing, bowling, having fun and engaging in a variety of Tuesday's Children activities. "Being present makes a world of difference in the life of a child and Ian was there for our family," shares Carol.
John and Nick also participated in Project COMMON BOND, a valuable leadership program that crosses cultural barriers and enables people of different countries to come together and share stories of how terrorism has affected their lives. Friendships they formed through Helping Heals projects, like home building, community improvement and Veteran's Days of Service are still strong today, bonds made in more joyful times together giving back to others in need as a healthy outlet for their pain.

Police Officer D'Allara's sons continue to honor their dad's important legacy and passion to serve and protect others. Nick joined the United States Marine Corps in May 2016 and served four years active duty. John pursued his education, earned a degree in biology and became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician, and is now in the Marines in North Carolina.
Please make a donation today to support the life-changing work of Tuesday's Children's programs to keep the promise to always be here for 9/11 children and respond to the growing needs of Military Families of the Fallen and mass violence survivors. Any amount makes a huge difference in their lives!
Together, we can show children and families how to reach that brighter future, while keeping loved ones like Officer John D'Allara in their hearts every step of the way.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Terry Sears
Executive Director
