Giving Tuesday is Fast Approaching on November 30.
What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Scheduled to follow Black Friday and Cyber Monday - days focused on commercial spending - Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. While many of you already support the great work of your Foundation throughout the year, Giving Tuesday is a day to consider adding one more feather in your generosity cap. Your impact could take the form of a donation to the Foundation, adding the Foundation to your regular Facebook and Instagram accounts to keep up with events, encouraging others to sign up for our Social Media sites to learn about the Foundation, or, if time allows, considering some volunteer time in support of the Foundation or the Museum. 
Whatever you chose to do on November 30th, thank you!  
Spirit of the AMEDD Art Contest   
The Foundation, in partnership with the AMEDD Museum, is sponsoring its first Junior and Senior High School Student Art Contest and Art Show, featuring AMEDD-related artwork from Robert G. Cole Middle and High School students. The contest theme is Spirit of the AMEDD. The winning art pieces will capture the spirit of the AMEDD: resiliency, loyalty, and courage in the face of adversity. Submissions of paint, drawing, sculpture, graphic design, and photography will be accepted. Once works are collected, the museum staff will arrange for the display of these works in the Museum. All students, parents/guardians, teachers, and support staff will be invited to view the artworks on display beginning January 17, 2022. February 18, 2022 is Award Night when the winners in each category will be announced. If you know a student at Robert G. Cole Junior or Senior High School who may be interested in participating have them contact their school Art Teacher.

COL (Ret) Thomas C. Jackson. Tom was an Aero Medical Evacuation Helicopter pilot and flew in Vietnam, Korea, and the continental United States. He was one of the last remaining members of the Solo Pilots Association of helicopter aviation pioneers and a member of the Dustoff Association. After 26 years of active duty, Tom retired from the US Army and began a successful ten-year career in the private healthcare sector in Houston and in San Antonio, Texas. Tom was a tireless advocate for the Foundation and the Museum and served in various positions on the Foundation Board over the years. He will be sorely missed.
