Folks, in an effort to honor some amazing heroes and to drive exposure to a wonderful company, Rustic Grace has partnered with OATH for this year’s OATH Memorial Walk.  Kristen, Owner of Rustic Grace, says, “I started painting for myself about 5 years ago, soon friends and family began asking me to paint for them.  Long story short, I paint.  I try to give away as much as I sell, and honor GOD in all I do.  Each sign is uniquely hand-painted with love, and they, and their owners, are covered in prayer.  I find that the relationships that come from serving others, and the honor of praying for them, is more valuable than anything I could have ever imagined.  Our rustic signs make wonderful gifts, and great additions to any home, inside or out.  There are no two alike, you can have almost anything you like (and I am capable of doing) on them, and you can ask for specific color combinations.  If you would like to place an order, please contact me by private message on Facebook or Instagram, or by sending an email via the contact page.  Shipping is available throughout the United States.  Thank you and God bless!”

The OATH Memorial Walk began in 2016 when Gary Bartels, the OATH Founder and Executive Director, decided to walk from Houston, Texas to his hometown of Kountze, Texas to honor the Texans who fought and died in Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.  Gary walked 150.25 miles in 4 days, averaging 37.5 miles a day !  Based on the outpouring of support and encouragement OATH received for that first Memorial Walk, Gary said he knew that this would be an annual event.  The following year, the OATH Walking Team grew with more members, and since 2016, the Team has walked close to 2,000 miles !  For the entire duration of the walk, the Team wears a rucksack which carries a notebook containing a photo of each of those fallen Heroes, as well as a set of dogtags for each.  The memory and the legacy of these Heroes are with the Team every step of the way!

In partnering with Rustic Grace, OATH is excited to not only gain more awareness for the OATH Memorial Walk and the Heroes it honors, but to also gain exposure for Rustic Grace by giving back to that business !  How is OATH doing this you might ask ??  EASY !  Whatever amount is collected via this partnership, OATH will spend half of that money with Rustic Grace on items and services that will help our OATH Registered Veterans.  Your donation, no matter how small, allows both OATH and Rustic Grace to bridge the gap of support and help folks in need.  Whether it’s $5, $10 or $100, each and every dollar matters as we directly impact Heroes on your behalf!
