September 11, 2011 marks the ten year anniversary of one of the most shocking and tragic events in American history. However devastating, the days and months following 9/11 were also some of the nation’s proudest. Americans exhibited patriotism in its truest form, coming together to support friends and strangers alike, in the most striking display of the nation’s collective greatness our generation has ever experienced.
In an effort to rekindle the American spirit that united our country after 9/11, I am writing to ask for your time and energy to support and thank our soldiers, who have sacrificed so much for their country in the decade since the September 11th attacks.
Giving an iPad will not only entertain, connect and teach a wounded soldier from their hospital bed, but, more importantly, it will convey an infinitely more powerful message to our soldiers: we recognize and appreciate their sacrifices. On the weekend of Sept. 11th, those interested can join me and a group of other supporters to personally deliver the iPads purchased through our efforts and thank soldiers recovering in military hospitals in the D.C. area.
It is my hope that those of you who are interested will pledge to raise $525, the approximate cost of a single iPad. $25 dollars from 21 of your friends and family members to give a gift that will mean the world to a soldier facing a long recovery.
