BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
Hello friends, family, Soldiers, and supporters! I am a Semi-Finalist competing for the title of Ms. Veteran America. I chose to enter this competition to be a part of an organization that brings women in uniform together to bring awareness and change. By no means is this a beauty pageant, it is a competition that combines strength, knowledge, talent, leadership skills, and community volunteerism. My hope is each of you will continue to support me as I take this journey alongside my sister Soldiers. The upstanding women of this competition come from each branch of our military. Through this endeavor we hope not only to showcase our own unique abilities, but to combine them, bringing a wealth of service in order to reach the largest capacity of people as possible. In the military we serve our nation, each other, and the communities which we live. However, there is a group often forgotten. Our veterans, female veterans. More often than not the percentage of homeless female veterans is often the highest among homeless veterans. This is a disservice to each person that has ever worn a uniform; at no point should any member of our armed services be left behind or forgotten. Along with my fellow competitors, I ask each of you to join me in donating to Final Salute Inc. (EIN 80-0660380) http://www.finalsaluteinc.org/. This organization assists homeless female veterans and their families by providing them the opportunity to stabilize their lives. As you can see, I have set a goal of $2,500.00, but with your generous support I know we can exceed it. Donate what you can because every little bit can go a long way. A donation of $100.00 provides a veteran and her family case management, food, clothing, transportation, in-house financial education and counseling, and others essential services (including housing). I am more passionate than ever not to allow our veterans to endure another night without shelter and services, if it can be helped. Especially when these brave persons have selflessly served their country to ensure Americans have such liberties. Please join me in supporting our veterans who have already given so much for each of us. Thank you, your support means everything!
