My name is Cole McCafferty and today, I would like to speak directly to every American.

Did you know that over 20 Veterans commit suicide a day?  39,000 Veterans are homeless on any given night?

Edison High School, located in Philadelphia, now sits vacant.  However, these crumbling hallways are a war-era landmark, as they were once walked by 64 young men who gave their lives in Vietnam.  It was the largest loss of students from any single high school in the nation.

I’m proud to announce that this building is currently under construction and is the future site of Edison 64.  This project pays tribute to those 64 young men that lost their lives serving our country. 

This building will have 66 apartments designated for homeless vets, including services on the first floor provided by the Veterans’ Multi-Service Center.  There will be a kitchen located on the first floor that will be used to provide our vets meals.  This is where I need your help.

The estimated cost of a new kitchen is $50,000.  I am asking every American to please donate whatever you can.  Every little bit helps.  I’m calling this #ColesChallenge.  If you accept #ColesChallenge please donate, share this video and nominate someone.  With pride in our hearts, it’s time we stand up to say thank you to our veterans.   I nominate Singer Brett Michaels and World Champion Trainer Danny Davis.  Do you accept #ColesChallenge?
