Today we salute Danielle Bacigalupo. Her father is Chief Warrant Officer James E. Bacigalupo IV who’s stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas with the 204th Military Intelligence Battalion. He recently returned from Kuwait in May of this year. Danielle is the sister of Jamie who was also a Military Child of the Week Salute.

Danielle’s mother writes;

Day 193 - Military Child of the Week“I’m nominating Danielle for the Military Child of the Week Salute given her time and enthusiasm she has for her eight year old sister’s 501c3 Angeles4Epilepsy organization which delivers gift bags to children in the hospital. Even though the focus is on epilepsy, there are no limits on who receives the gift bags. Danielle, who recently turned 4, saves her unopened Happy Meal toys to provide for children with epilepsy as part of her contribution. She is also instrumental in assembly the gift bags with all the toys, crafts and snacks and helps deliver the bags to the hospitals.”

Jamie, along with her family are stationed at Ft. Bliss, Texas, home to the U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery School and four combat ADA brigades. Jamie’s Dad, James E. Bacigalupo, IV, is a Chief Warrant Officer with the 204th Military Intelligence Battalion and returned from a year of deployment from Kuwait in May of this year. This is a picture of Jamie, her Dad and her little sister.

Jamie’s Mom writes;

“I’m nominating Jamie for the Military Child of the Week Salute given her time and commitment she is providing for her non-profit Angels4Epilepsy, Inc. which was granted 501c3 status by the IRS this year. Jamie, who was diagnosed with epilepsy two years ago, hasn’t let the condition stop her. Rather it has inspired her to help other children with epilepsy by doing good deeds. Since 2010, when she first formed Angels4Epilepsy, she has delivered over 200 gift bags to children in Georgia and with the help of volunteers, in Florida and Indiana. Her gift bags contain items for the children hospitalized to have something to do while trying to raise awareness about kids and epilepsy.

“Jamie won a $5,000 grant in August of 2010 to help form the corporation and has been a Kohls Cares for Kids local and regional winner this year due to her efforts in helping other children. Both Jamie and her sister, who also has a chronic condition, understand how being in the hospital can be boring and scary and through their efforts, try to help alleviate some of that. Most of the work has been done while their Dad has been on two deployments over the past three years. Since arriving at Ft. Bliss in May of this year, we are working on a delivery to the local children’s hospital in El Paso.”
