VETERAN JOB FAIRS


Support Veteran Job Fairs

American Legion National Headquarters is now gearing up for an August effort to win a Pepsi Refresh Everything grant to help us achieve our goal of 1,000 veteran job fairs nationwide in 2010 and 2011. Voting is scheduled to begin Sunday morning, Aug. 1. Check back at www.legion.org to cast your vote.

Every year, The American Legion sponsors nearly 300 job fairs, business workshops and career expos across the country. As veteran unemployment continues to outpace that of the general population, career opportunities for those who served our nation in uniform are more important than ever. Your vote for American Legion Job Fairs can help us reach our goal of sponsoring 1,000 veteran career events in 2010 and 2011.

Your vote is needed to help veterans get back to work. It costs nothing to place your online vote. It could mean everything for a veteran to get a job or start a new business.

Remember, you can vote daily throughout the month in the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project.

PEPSI COLA GRANT

Four days remain for OCW voting

  The American Legion is calling on fellow Americans to spend a few moments every day between now and Feb. 28 to help our wounded service men and women.

The Legion's Operation Comfort Warriors is competing for a $250,000 grant to be awarded by Pepsi Cola, Inc, as part of its Refresh Everything campaign. There are 729 charities competing for grants ranging from $5,000 to $250,000 which are determined by the number of votes received at Pepsi's Refresh Everything Web site. Operation Comfort Warriors is currently in second place. The two charities with the most votes in the $250,000 category will receive the grants.


Visitors can cast their votes every day between now and Feb. 28 by clicking here.


Since December 2008, The American Legion family has raised funds for Operation Comfort Warriors, a program dedicated to meeting the needs of wounded military personnel, providing them with comfort items not usually supplied by the government. OCW ensures that patients at U.S. military hospitals and warrior transition units are given items like sweat suits, DVDs, puzzles, electronic devices, books, calling cards and more. All overhead and administrative costs for the program are paid by The American Legion, meaning 100 percent of donated money goes directly to the troops.


Pepsi will announce the winners on March 1.

OPERATION COMFORT WARRIORS

OCW Falls to #2 in Pepsi voting

After capturing the #1 spot in its bid to win a $250,000 grant in the Pepsi Refresh Project competition on Friday afternoon, The American Legion’s Operation Comfort Warriors fell to #2 early today.

Pepsi Cola, Inc. is awarding $1.3 million each month to charities receiving the most votes on their Web site.  In the $250, 000 category, the top two charities receiving the most votes will both receive $250,000 and will be named March 1. It is essential that members of The American Legion family vote every day throughout the month of February. It is also important for supporters to spread the word to friends via social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other popular sites. E-mails and phone calls can also make a big difference.

Rules allow the public to vote each day per e-mail address during February.  The American Legion OCW page can be found at: http://www.refresheverything.com/operationcomfortwarriors.  Or, it can be accessed via The American Legion national Web site at www.legion.org and clicking on the “Vote Daily” icon on the right side of the page.

Please vote every day and spread the word.

OPERATION COMFORT WARRIORS


Pepsi Refresh Project - Good Luck!

Legion Family,

The American Legion family has raised more than $300,000 to purchase comfort items for U.S. troops recovering in hospitals and warrior transition units around the globe. Now we have the opportunity to nearly double what was raised. Pepsi Cola is offering a $250,000 grant to the top two charities (based on votes) as part of its  Pepsi Refresh project. There are 729 charities competing and as of Feb. 1, Operation Comfort Warriors is 21st  in votes.

All overhead and administrative costs for Operation Comfort Warriors is paid for by The American Legion, meaning 100 percent of donations go toward helping the troops. If OCW were to receive the Pepsi grant, that money would also go entirely to the troops. Please go to http://refresheverything.com/operationcomfortwarriors and vote.

Just as importantly, use your post and department newspapers, facebook pages, web sites, twitter and all other tools at your disposal to encourage others to vote for this great cause.

The refresheverything grant can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of our disabled troops.

If you have any questions about OCW, please feel free to call Communications Director John Raughter at (317)630-1350 of visit http://legion.org/troops/operationcomfort.

Thank you for your support,
Dan Wheeler
National Adjutant

OCW ensures that patients at U.S. military hospitals and warrior transition units are given items like sweat suits, DVDs, puzzles, electronic devices, books, calling cards and more.

"The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq continue. Military service will always include inherent dangers from training and other hazardous duties," American Legion National Commander Clarence E. Hill said. "As long as our men and women are in harm's way, there will continue to be wounded warriors. The American Legion needs to be there for our heroes. Operation Comfort Warriors is an excellent way to show our appreciation for their sacrifices. I urge all Americans to show their appreciation by voting for it on the Pepsi Refresh Everything Web site."

All administrative and marketing costs for Operation Comfort Warriors are paid for by The American Legion, meaning 100 percent of all donations and grants received go to the troops.
