Motorcycle Ride For Wounded Warrior Project
Here I go again. I've contacted the Wounded Warrior Project for more information on doing a fundraiser for them. My plan so far, do an article up for the local magazine that my Way of the Wind article is already coming out in. The first article will be to make people aware of the WWP and what it does for our wounded soldiers. Then after that I'm hoping to have a weekend/overnight ride with donations being accepted for the WWP backpacks that are given to the wounded warriors undergoing treatment. You see, after a soldier is wounded all of their belongings are taken and while in the hospitals many do not have any articles of clothing, toiletries or any personal items. The packs contain items for these soldiers during their initial hospital stays, which it could be some, time before they can get just the simplest of items for their personal comfort.
My followup article would be how the ride went and what was raised complete with pictures and such of the ride and people attending. The packs are $99 a piece so to make it easier on people to donate, a 4-to-1 ride concept is in my thinking. This way a group of four could pool and make a $25 donation each to cover just one pack. Thirty two riders would be able to raise enough for eight packs and for these soldiers, that's a small price for us to help them out.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
