Why I’m Cutting My Hair:
UPDATE: Team Smitty has raised $1600 for the VFW. I cannot begin to express the thanks and determination of my family, friends, military people and News Channel 10. Your unwavering friendships and dedications for helping others is breath taking. It truly honors me to say that I am friends with each and everyone of you! Please continue to pass this on for today and try until we can donate no more!
Thank you all so much from both I and the Veterans of Foreign Wars VFW
I am taking the pledge to cut my hair this Veterans Day, November 11th, to show my support for our veterans and raise awareness for the struggles they are facing.
Whether or not you know a veteran or come from a military family, the fate of our country’s veterans should matter to all of us. There’s nothing complicated about it. They are fathers, mothers, sons and daughters with families to care for. They left their jobs, their careers and their spouses and children for months—even years—on end because they made a promise to answer when their country called. Now they’re suffering. Waiting for the compensation and benefits they need to feed their families … keep a roof over their head and the lights on … and receive the quality medical care they need to get back to their lives and families again.
Please, I hope you will support me by helping me reach my goal so that together, we can show our veterans that we care and ensure our veterans’ needs don’t fall through the cracks. Thank you for your help!
About the VFW
The VFW has been around for over 110 years. In that time they have led the charge on virtually every significant piece of veterans legislation, from the GI Bill to Agent Orange compensation. Every year, the VFW helps thousands of veterans receive their VA benefits and helps struggling military families with things like paying rent and bills, buying groceries and home repairs.
I eventually want to raise $1000 for this campaign. I hope you all will help!
