Dear Freedom's Light Supporters:

Welcome to the 2011 Freedom's Light Program!  For those new to the program, I am Pat Curran founder and writer of the Freedom's Light Newsletter.  Our season kickoff begins in 2 weeks.

The purpose of the Freedom’s Light Program is to connect patriotic donors to worthy organizations that support military, first responders, and children impacted by the Global War on Terror. How do we do this?   In short, I compete in endurance races, publish newsletters (for my kids to read someday), and ask readers to consider donating directly to one of our 5 charities: The Wounded Warrior Project, Fisher House, Children of Fallen Patriots, Tuesday’s Children, and the USO’s Operation Care Package for the Troops overseas.  Freedom's Light covers all administrative costs and does not see a penny of anyone's generous gift.  100% of an individual's donation goes directly to the charity!


This year's theme will focus on what some call "The Hero's Journey."  My goal is inspire you, the reader, with short stories and insights that can help in fulfilling your life's purpose.  This will include creating a Dream List, building a 12 Week Action Plan, and knowing that at least one person is working alongside you as I train for my 70.3 Mile Toughman race held on September 11, 2011.

I want to thank our 5 charity program members, Kashkin & Company - Certified Public Accountants, Ferguson Landscaping, Pearl River Lanes, Compass Accounting, the Corps of Support, and Teachers-to-Tutors who have committed to support the Freedom’s Light Program. Their generosity is fueling our ability to invest back into the nation.  Over the next few weeks, you will see their logos posted on the website and within future newsletters.

As always, thank you for your continued support!  Please feel to pass this note on to the maximum number of individuals, organizations, or businesses who may be interested. No obligations exist for signing up for newsletters. For any questions, feel free to contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
