Dear Freedom’s Light Supporters:


On Sunday, September 11th, I will be participating in the Westchester 70.3 Mile Toughman as a way to honor our 9/11 Heroes and those impacted by the Global War on Terror. One of the several ways you can join me in spirit is to donate to any of the 5 charities I am running for listed in the next section below.

To me, donating time and money to charity organizations is a very personal choice. It should be a choice that helps both the donor and recipient in a deeply profound way. There is no better example of this than the work done by Kaziah Hancock – Artist and Goat Farmer from Utah. She has been a role model for me over the years and her actions have greatly shaped my perspective and the development of the Freedom’s Light Charity Program. Please, take a moment to see her story. You will not regret it.

There will be only 2 more reminders about the Freedom’s Light Charity Drive which will be sent on Friday, Sept 9th and Sunday morning before I leave for the race. Please consider donating today.

Thank you for your support… Feel free to email back, if you have any questions about giving.

With Great Sincerity,

USO's Operation Care Package (www.uso.org)

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear - away from their families, friends, and the comforts of home.  In 2003, the USO discovered the changing needs of those thousands of deploying troops.  Understanding the impact that the little things can have and difference they can make, the USO launched Operation USO Care Package providing comforts of home in the form of a care package.  For as little as $25.00 you can send a care package letting a service member know that you care.

Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org)

The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need.  One night while watching the evening news, veterans and friends were moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq.  They realized something needed to be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape parades.  They wanted to provide tangibles support for the severely wounded to help them on the road to heal both physically and mentally.  What they viewed as a small contribution compared with what the warriors had sacrificed is now WWP's signature program:  WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors.
