At Crystal Imagery, we have a great love of our country and all the service men and women who help to protect us every day. We are in awe of the sacrifice these brave men and women make so that we can be FREE. Therefore we wanted to find a way to give back and say thank you in some little way.
We’ve chosen to donate 10% of all of our web sales for any military glassware to American Widow Project. We have engraved glasses for every branch (Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy) and even for military wives and moms. Your purchase will help us to support our great nation’s deceased service men and women by helping to provide much needed support to their grieving wives and families.Read about this organization below and please consider donating.
Since 2001, over 6,600 U.S. service members have lost their lives in Iraq
and Afghanistan. This number does not include the thousands more who have
lost their lives due to sudden illness, accident, homicide or those that
have taken their own lives due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. At the
same time, more than 3,600 young military widows face their worst nightmare
when they receive that dreadful knock on the door by two military in
uniform notifying them of their spouse’s death.*
While the service member’s sacrifice is often acknowledged by society,
many simply forget or fail to recognize the sacrifice of the spouse who is
now left a grieving military widow. Oftentimes the invisible wounds of
military widows are disregarded due to age or a simple lack of knowledge
The American Widow Project recognizes the sacrifices made by the families
of our fallen and believes that no military widow should feel alone in her
grief. Every military widow deserves the opportunity and tangible tools
available to help rebuild her life. Because of that, the American Widow
Project provides the vital peer-to-peer, emotional, and educational support
necessary to maximize success, healing and hope for a brighter future.
To date, the AWP has held over 42 National retreat events, 12 WidowU
Events, and most recently launched the first ever combined widow and
