Dear Fellow Veterans, Friends, and Families of Veterans,

 

This has been an exciting spring and summer for WVSJ Network. I would like to brief you on recently launched and upcoming projects and events, and ask you to:

  1. come on board to help us with an electronic fundraiser which we start on August 1;

  2. forward this newsletter to your email lists/post it, with a personal request to support our fundraiser, and join our community online and at upcoming events;

  3. let us know what’s new with you, what you are interested in, and how you might help us grow.

 

FIRST, OUR ASK:

WE ARE LAUNCHING A $10X100 DAYS E-FUNDRAISER to fund our WVSJ e-network expansion & upcoming Fall Retreats.

BEGINS TODAY AUG. 1- THROUGH WED. NOV 11, VETERANS DAY.

OUR GOAL IS TO ASK:

EACH DONOR FOR $10 OR MORE ONLINE OR BY CHECK

OVER 100 DAYS, ENDING VETERANS DAY.

WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT EVERY ONE OF YOU DONATING AND PASSING THE WORD/ASKING OTHERS TO SUPPORT US. PLEASE HELP US MEET THIS GOAL!
