The highest price of freedom is a cost paid by a brave few.

Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 463 is a United States Marine Corps helicopter squadron consisting of CH-53E Super Stallion transport helicopters. In January 2016, HMH-463 lost twelve of their Marines.

To honor those that serve and protect,  I will Light-A-Candle in Memory of each of the 12 Fallen Marines from HMH-463. 

Who will you donate in honor or memory of?  

Our cause never ends so please HELP those veterans who need our support by participating in our Light-A-Candle Fundraiser!  Thank YOU.

OM Peace and Light...Deb

ABOUT Light a Candle 2020

As Memorial Day approaches, it is time to pause, take a breath and consider the true meaning of this holiday. Memorial Day is to remember those Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We recognize their service which led to the freedoms that we all enjoy today.

The ritual of lighting a candle in remembrance of a life passed has long been a part of our culture.  Keeping a light burning acknowledges that the memory still lives on and burns bright in our hearts. It is a ritual that promotes reflection and signifies a perpetual remembrance.

We would like to invite you to participate in Light A Candle, by making a dedication to honor those who have served. This year we are partnering with to bring our community a unique experience of being able to light a virtual candle for their personal intention.

Your gift will go directly to support recovery and resilience among our veterans, families, and communities. These programs include more than 350 free Mindful Resilience yoga classes each month, 3.5 hours of live online practices each day during the COVID crisis, 200-hour yoga teacher training for veterans and active-duty, and our new online Mindful Resilience for Compassion Fatigue e-course.  

Thank you for honoring and/or praying for those you love, remember, or grieve through “Light-A-Candle."
