Margi Johnson contacted the Order of the Purple Heart, in order to begin a fundraiser for our group (see attachment). Depending on how much money we raise, it could substantially cut the cost of running the reunion this year.
To be honest, our funds are very low and any donations we received would mean a hell of a lot to these men and their families.
If you can contribute (even a dollar is appreciated), it would be greatly appreciated!!!!
Help make this a truly memorable event for these dedicated veterans! Thanks, M1
