Send a Greeting and Support the
Blue Star Memorial Program

Send A Greeting Electronically
Recognize Our Servicemen's Every Sacrifice

Send your fellow NGC members, other friends and family an email greeting at Christmas or any holiday. Save the time and cost of the card and stamp. (Grandchildren are wonders at creating email greetings)

Then, in honor of your greeting, make a donation to the Sage and Roses Blue Star Marker Fund. You can make the donation online (click here), or by sending a check to NGC Headquarters (please make sure to note on the check "Sage and Roses Blue Star Marker Fund).

  • Suggested donation: $1.00 for each email greeting you send.
  • $10 to $25 = one chance for your state to win.
  • $26 to $50 = two chances for your state to win.
  • Your name will be on your chance tickets.
  • The winning ticket will be drawn by our NGC President at the Annual Convention.
  • The winning ticket holder decides where the Blue Star Marker will be placed in the state.
  • All monies collected will be spent in the same year for the erection and landscaping of markers.

The Blue Star Memorial Program is the premier national project that advertises NGC's name from coast to coast.
