Rat Mass 2013+3 wrote -
The Rat Mass at VMI is hosting a push-up challenge on November 29 to raise funds to benefit the Boot Campaign while honoring the graduating class of 2013. Each RAT is taking pledges for their own personal push-up goal.
Dear friends and family, The Rats at VMI will be trying to raise money for the “Boot Campaign”, the “Proceeds from boot sales are donated to partner charities, who assist returning veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and varying degrees of physical injuries”
The group makes money by selling Combat Boots to civilians and gives all of their profits to their partner veteran charities. I’m asking you to forgo purchasing a pair of boots, which can cost quite a bit, and directly donate your money to their cause. Please do this in support of the 1.4 million Americans that serve to defend our country, freedom, and way of life.
Your sponsorship of my push-ups can make a tangible difference in the lives of a soldier. We may not all have the honor to serve our country, but this is an opportunity to serve those who do.
Please be generous.
The donation is a one time thing, NOT per push up!
