This is an incredible inspiring story of a young woman who started Kicking Glass at age 15. Shauna Fleming founded "A Million Thanks" at age 15 to support our women and men who are serving or served our country.
Shauna reached her initial goal in just six months and presented the one-millionth letter to President Bush in the Oval Office of the White House. Now, 13 years later, the organization has expanded to three missions: sending thank you letters to active duty military, granting wishes to injured veterans, and providing higher education scholarships to children of fallen military.
A Million Thanks has taken Shauna across the United States, speaking to groups about “The Power of One”. She published a book chronicling her journey to the White House, to becoming a Department of Defense spokesperson, to partnering with General Motors, Southwest Airlines, and actors like Gary Sinise and Jessica Simpson, and to being interviewed by various media more than 300 times.
