Support Project Healing Waters
November 2, 2011
In one of our earliest posts, we talked a bit about a great program called Project Healing Waters. It’s a program that works with wounded and disabled veterans to teach them the basics of fly fishing, fly casting, and rod building.
We recently received an email from them asking for support to help them raise money and gain greater media exposure. We’ve published it below and ask that you consider helping them out. It does not require any money, just your votes.
In recognition of the work Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) does with veterans and its presence on GuideStar, PHWFF has been selected to participate in a weekly voting competition on Toyota USA’s Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/toyota?sk=app_114219605347571. PHWFF will be up against three other nonprofit organizations and the one with the most votes at the end of the week will receive $10,000.00 plus be featured on NBC’s Sunday Night Football during the Toyota Halftime advertisement.
We need your vote. We need your vote every day from November 2 through November 8. In addition, please encourage your family, friends, co-workers, employees, bosses, colleagues, clients, neighbors, civic, social, patriotic, military and veterans organizations, Social media friends, PLs, volunteers, and anyone else you can think of to vote for PHWFF…not just once, but remember to vote seven times.
I recognize that your time is valuable, however, $10,000.00 and the media exposure PHWFF will get will help purchase fly fishing equipment and supplies and send more deserving veterans on trips is a significant return for a couple minutes of your time each day to log on to http://www.facebook.com/toyota?sk=app_114219605347571 and vote. And, it will be $10,000 less than the nonprofit organization will have to raise to help wounded warriors and diabled veterans as they participate in a constructive rehabilitation and recreational activity.
I thank you in advance for your support.
