On August 6th, 2011 a helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. 31 American lives (including Bart the dog) were lost. If you’d like to see the names, the faces, and know more about these men, check out our facebook page where we listed every one of them today (www.facebook.com/OnPurposeJourney)
We were informed by a few that our previous 9/11 Tribute Events email and how to donate was not fully clear, so we’re posting a second and shorter message.
We’re raising funds for our 9/11 Events through sponsors AND through WE ARE ONE t-shirts and WE ARE ONE gold challenge coins. The shirt/coin combo is only $30, CLOSE TO ONE DOLLAR PER LIFE LOST four years ago today. Here’s the link to get the shirt/coin combo ($30): http://fire.paulconwayshields.com/collectibles-gifts/on-purpose-journey-we-are-one-challenge-coin-26826.html#.VblC6HgqGbA
We need help with funding for both the book printing costs as well as the materials that we will utilize for the evening memorial, with a total of nearly $25,000 forecast for these events. We are gladly accepting donations through our website if you don’t want a shirt/coin, but still want to help us STAND FOR THE FALLEN. If there is anything at all that you can contribute, we would be most grateful. Here’s the link for donating and not receiving a coin/shirt: https://onpurposejourney.com/donate/
For all information on the events, a flyer, shirts, coins, and sponsorship opportunities, here’s the link: https://onpurposejourney.com/9-11/
We just obtained the massive posters with the names and faces of the fallen for our evening display. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 14 years…yet in a way it seems like yesterday.
Thanks for your help in STANDING FOR THE FALLEN,
~Your On Purpose Journey Inc. Team
