Our first month of RED Shirt Friday is in the books…and it was a great month! All proceeds from the sale of RED Shirts during the month of August will be donated to Folds of Honor. As mentioned in previous posts, Folds of Honor is a great organization that provides much needed support for service men and women and their families. They are the first of many very worthy organizations. We are happy to report that we sold out of shirts…TWICE! Thanks for you generosity in helping us support such a worthy cause.
Now, it’s already September and it’s time to support another organization. We had the idea that it would be great to support different organizations each month. There are so many worthy, military related charities…….
So, we are PROUD to announce that this month’s beneficiary will be the Navy SEAL Foundation. The Navy SEAL Foundation is really an amazing organization. Over the past few years, they have really stepped up to help out the family members of SEALs both wounded and killed in either training or combat. Below is more info from their website:
- Our mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.
- Statement of purpose:
- Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation offers critical support to Naval Special Warfare commands, active-duty personnel, their families and veterans of NSW. As the duration and frequency of training and operational deployments continue, and the stress on the families and operators grows, this important community requires support today more than ever.
In the coming month, there will be a couple of SEAL Foundation Fundraising events here in the Denver area. The 3rd Annual “Evening of Tribute” takes place on Sept. 19th. On the following day, the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the UDT/SEAL Association will be hosting the “Inaugural Sporting Clay Tournament.” Each of these fundraisers will be benefiting the Navy SEAL Foundation. You can see here how much of what they raise goes directly to the families of these amazing war fighters.
If you cant attend either of these events and still want to support, than just buy a RED Shirt here! It would THRILL us beyond measure to send the Navy SEAL Foundation a HUGE check at the end of September! We’d love to sell out of these shirts AGAIN this month!
So, thanks again for all the support you’ve given us in the first Month. If you don’t want another RED Shirt, please send this along to someone who will. There are many units that have given a LOT for us in the fight against terrorism. As a community, the SEAL Teams have definitely done their share….
