Reel Wives | Midland, TX
Reel Wives was created in 2010 as an expansion of the organization known as Reel Thanx. Reel Thanx took a few wounded heroes to the lake a few times a year for a reprieve of the stresses of Active duty in the military. Reel Thanx had such a wonderful success rate in helping to heal some of the wounds that could not be seen, that we knew we had to extend a similar opportunity to the wives — they deserved just as much attention and honor as the men. What started as a few care packages being mailed to the wives at home became an all-expense paid trip to West Texas for a weekend of the kind of pampering and honoring these women truly deserved for holding their own on the home front.
he purpose of Reel Wives is to provide a support system and to give thanks to the military wives of our heroes who have participated in our Reel Thanx program. Our organization honors these women by flying them in for an all-expense paid trip to Midland, Texas. Our team hosts two trips a year; one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Our trips are filled with many different activities including dinners, shopping, and pampering. What we’re most proud of is the support system we offer these women; we want them to know that once they are a part of the Reel Wives family, they will always have someone to turn to, no matter what. This is just our small and humble way of saying “thank you” for all they have sacrificed.
Our organization is always looking for volunteers and sponsorships. We could not do what we do without the help of our many friends and benefactors. Please feel free to contact our team with any questions on how to help or donate.
