I am contacting you on behalf of Circle of Friends for American Veterans. We are a national non-profit organization located outside of DC that does grassroots advocacy to get homeless veterans the help they deserve.
We have been in existence since 1993 and work with both veterans’ and homeless groups. One of our main efforts is a series of rallies held throughout the United States to attract media attention to the problem of homelessness among veterans. This coming year we will be in ten cities including Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Des Moines, Iowa; Las Vegas, Nevada; Manchester, New Hampshire; Columbia, South Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; Detroit, Michigan; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Tampa, Florida; and Arlington, Virginia. The first rally will be in late December, and the last rally sometime in early to mid February. Using the media attention generated from these rallies as support, we hope spur government action to provide greater assistance to combat the problem of homelessness among veterans. We are a strictly non-partisan organization that only seeks to help veterans.
In preparation for our upcoming series of rallies we are making a strong effort to let as many people know about our rallies as possible. The more people in attendance at our rallies the greater the show of support for homeless veterans.
I read your post on November 12th entitled “A National Disgrace”. As our organization focuses on the issue of homeless veterans, I am wondering if there is some way you could help us get the message out about our upcoming rallies. Would you be willing to post some information about our rallies, and/or provide a link to our website? I know you are not located near any of the cities in which we will be holding our rallies, but we would appreciate any help you can provide. Our rallies have been very successful in drawing attention to the issue of homelessness among veterans. Also, our rallies spotlight local transitional facilities which report significant increases in donations and volunteers following our rallies. I have attached a PDF copy of our executive summary to provide additional information about our rallies. If you have any questions for me please feel free to ask, and I look forward to hearing back from you.
