A Holiday for Vets

Donation protected
Hello to all who see this message,


                This  Christmas Holiday I am hoping to rally as many people as I can reach on a global scale to bring a Holiday for our Homeless Veteran Community here in the Bay Area/Oakland. As we all plan for our own family gatherings, friendsgivings, and Christmas celebrations – there are homeless Veterans on the street who have nothing to celebrate, and nobody to celebrate with. This year with your help, I hope we are able to come together as a community and give back to these Veterans who may feel forgotten. Who may feel their sacrifice; physically, emotionally, and especially mentally has been forgotten.

                My name is Phil Bohol. I served as a machine gunner in the Marine Corps and it made the biggest positive impact on my life. Although I no longer serve in my beloved Corps, I still feel a very deep tie to the brother/sisterhood that is the military. I am a Marine Vet, currently one of the Store Managers at Best Buy, and the Founder of Avg to Alpha ( ). I have dedicated my adult life to giving back in hopes to help Veterans and their families through hardships by way of donations, helping Veterans who need a job through the help of Work for Warriors (Thank you Anthony A.) to set them up for success with Best Buy, and truly living the values of my own brand, Avg to Alpha, which truly strives to inspire mental and physical wellness while growing the community that surrounds my brand.

                With the help of the GM of Best Buy Oakland, Christopher Cooley, we hope to raise donations for a total goal of $2,500 where the proceeds will go to giving homeless Veterans a Christmas gift with the following: Hygiene Kit, Blanket, and a sleeping bag. Funding we raise will go to Give a Gift to our Veterans for Christmas. 100% of the funds will be used for this Holiday season to truly GIVE BACK to the homeless Veteran community. With the help and support of you all, we will truly be able to impact the homeless Veteran community in Oakland/Bay Area.

                I understand during the holidays especially it is difficult to find any extra money to donate to a cause like this. And I believe I have a plan that will help us get to our goal of $2,500.

                Please share this GoFundMe link on your Facebook, your Twitter, your Instagram, and across your social media. If we can reach 2,500 people who can donate $1.00 we will be able to fulfill this Holiday for Vets.

                For anybody who donates $25.00 or more I will also send you one of my “I am a Warrior” t-shirts located on my website ( ) – please email me directly at [email redacted] with your shipping details if you are eligible.


                This movement is so much bigger than all of us. As I close this statement, I truly want you to understand the impact we can have on our community if we work together side by side. I truly want us to make a difference and show our homeless Veteran community that we still care, and they are not forgotten. As I think about our Heroes, I want so much to be able to give them so much more than they have living the streets. And with this movement, WE can make a difference. This is what it truly means to BE HUMAN.

                                Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this. If you are truly unable to donate to this movement, please do share this to your social media platforms at the least. I truly would be so grateful if you are able to help us spread awareness. Time is critical.


The links to the GoFundMe will be on our company Instagram @AvgtoAlpha in the bio as well as our Facebook Page ( ) – please tag us and invite your followers to click the link so they are also able to read this message.


Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Christopher and I are excited to make this a memorable holiday for these Veterans.


Happy Holidays
