What Can I Do?
1. Send a
2. Organize a fund
raiser through your work, church, synagogue, school, lodge, meeting house,
professional/social/fraternal organization, or other group. You can find a number of items
below to download, print and handout. We have
found it useful to have sample helmets on-hand for people to try. I carry
two helmets with me: one upgraded and one standard. You can buy a
PASGT from ebay for less than $50 if you are somewhat patient. Also, don't buy
a replica; they are NOT the same weight or feel.
events that have been done or suggested are: 5K Fun Runs or Walks, Motorcycle
Rallies, poker run, golf cart races (strange, but true), golf tournaments, bake sales, car
washes, Karaoke nights and music fests.
one is cool: We have collected a donation
of 200 postage stamps to send invitations out for our NON-EVENT. If you know
business owners, friends or family that you think may want to attend this
NON EVENT please send me their name and address. I will be mailing out
invitations in the New Smyrna Beach and Daytona area next week, but will
gladly mail an invitation to anyone you think may be interested in NOT
attending. Ticket price to NOT attend the non-event will be $25. We
will NOT have speakers, we will NOT have military personnel in attendance,
we will NOT have entertainment, we will NOT even have food. The benefit of
NOT attending this event is the heart warming feeling from knowing that your
ticket price will help furnish free of charge a helmet upgrade kit to
military personnel in Iraq or Afghanistan who have requested one.
Here is an
example from two high school students
- Put our
information on your web site,
Twitter, or MySpace pages.
- Let us
know when and where you are having an event. We may be able to attend or
at least provide some pointers.
3. Write your
elected officials - it may not have an immediate impact, but eventually they
will listen. A sample letter is available here
or sign the
on-line petition built by a volunteer. Click
