Dear friends, family, and random people of Facebook that I haven't spoken with in years,
I am not one to solicit people for money. That said, I feel that this cause is important enough to break my rule…Operation Coach provides returning veterans the opportunity to coach youth sports in under-served communities. This program lets veterans transition into a career in sports and youth development while giving back to their community as a coach for at-risk youth.
It’s well documented that many veterans struggle acclimating into society after their service to our country. This program is proven to help veterans reconnect with their communities in a fun and impactful way.
The program is being run by Up2Us Sports. Up2Us Sports is a non-profit dedicated to transforming the lives of our nation's most vulnerable youth by hiring and training coaches who can inspire their success on and off the field. I recently joined the National Leadership Council for Up2Us and know how challenging it is to fund these great programs.
I would appreciate you considering giving a few dollars to the cause and perhaps spreading the word. Every dollar helps and I'm personally kicking off my fundraiser by donating $25.

Thanks for your consideration.
