Campaign finished
We need your help to continue serving our fallen heroes in using social media to raise funds to provide hotel room accommodations so their brothers and sisters in service can pay their respects. Following the West Webster firefighter ambush tragedy we initially raised over $40K in direct donor to beneficiary funding or room stays. Since that time we have responded to 9 additional deaths including two of the fallen officers from the ex-LAPD officer shooting spree. We have also raised awareness about the memorial benefits for the surviving families of all our heroes, which without a doubt has directed tens of thousands of dollars in aid. We now urgently need your assistance in establishing a 401 or 501 (c) (3) status so future gifts will be tax deductible and that we can have a reserve of funds to respond immediately by purchasing blocks of rooms at a discounted rate. We also need your help in setting up a first class web site befitting the sacrifice of the lost. Thank you for your generous support. Your gift will live through honoring those that have payed the ultimate price. -Bill Benson
