Hire our Heroes and Fund Nonprofits

$250,000 goal

Campaign created 5 months ago

I am establishing a local online Savings Card and Coupon Fundraising Program at no cost or labor to local nonprofits and businesses while  supporting and promoting both for a national application.  

The intracracies of this Fundraising Program will be clearly outlined within every future website as exemplified in the local, fully operational websites listed below for full transparency:

Rochester, NY as my model city @ Rochester.savingsforacause.com
Cape Cod, MA as my model region @ CapeCod.savingsforacause.com

My umbrella website from which you'll be able to link to all initially selected (50) participating cities and regions in (50) states will be accessed from a drop down menu under the  "Participating Cities" tab - pending my raising $250,000 in needed operating capital @ Savingsforacause.com 

It is my mission to utilize the much needed minimal 250,000 raised to offer this Fundraising Program as a home based business opportunity to the over 500,000 unemployed Veterans throughout the country through local Veteran advocacy oriented venues such as Veteran Career Fairs , Veteran Outreach Centers , Recruit Military, Military.com , Military Hire and American Jobs for America's Heroes (AJAH) to personally interview local Veteran candidates at each selected locale, recruit the most qualified, train him/her on website administration and customer protocol, then publicly launch this program into each community.

I will also seek and recruit a Business Associate as a peer within this venture and organization possessing strong military knowledge and administrative skills to assist me in moving Savings for a Cause to ongoing expanded, higher levels still and finally, retain legal assistance to finalize the legalities of this significant project as well as retaining a CPA firm to oversee the extensive bookeeping and financial aspects.

As an adjunct to Savings for a Cause's home based business opportunity, local Veteran representatives will also be introduced to and recruited as Independent Associates of LegalShield as an additional, integrated home based business opportunity enhanced by LegalShield's Military Outreach Partnership with AJAH.

Raising $250,000 will assist me immensely in fulfilling my pledge to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and their Hiring our Heroes initiative to include Spouses of Heroes , Wounded Warrior Project , Disabled American Veterans , Paralyzed Veterans of America  & more.

Of these over 500,000 unemployed Veterans, 39,471 were homeless in January 2016. Having lived and experienced homelessness myself, this aspect of Veteran unemployment will be incorporated and take personal precedence within my Fundraising Program with local Food and Shelter advocacy as one of the four initial community needs nonprofits to launch this Fundraising Program in each participating city/region with the other (3) identified as Veteran needs, Animal advocacy and Childhood Illness. 

As such, my strategy to publicly launch Savings for a Cause in each city and region is to select an inital four of (52) participating nonprofits to promote on each website home page over the first four weeks to be followed by (48) more to be rotated on a weekly basis is as follows:

1. These (4) initial aforementioned local nonprofits will act as as a common thread grouping of nonprofits in all future Savings for a Cause websites being established and publicly launched.

2. Weekly local sponsor businesses will be selected and placed alongside the weekly selected nonprofit on each city/region home page and will also be promoted on the 500 corresponding Nonprofit's custom designed Savings Cards issued to each of the initial four nonprofits (2,000 total) at a cost of $200 to defray the cost of charity custom Savings Card design, printing and shipping and used as an advertising and marketing venue.   

In Summary:

To date, I have acheived my current level of success with extremely limited at best finances while being denied nominal business funding by more financial lending institutions I care to recall.   Nominal funding would have enabled me, while at the same time, constricted me to launching my Fundraising Program at a snail's pace of one city at a time. 

I plan to live and breathe Veteran needs as I champion this cause through Savings for a Cause which in turn will champion the needs of local nonprofits, businesses and chambers of commerce.  I now wish to initiate a tactical blitzkrieg approach and take our country, Veterans, nonprofits, businesses and chambers of commerce by storm and launch (50) city and regional websites at once.

Rather than hopelessly attempting to secure this $250,000 Goal through  financial, impersonal, profit driven entities but rather through caring and compassionate individuals cognizant of the employment and other multiple and diverse needs of our Heroes who served our country; your generous donation would help serve my desire and ability to advocate for our Veterans in a significant, meaningful and ongoing perpetual way.

In addition to denial of any funding whatsoever by financial institutions, what is currently in place was by my efforts and meager finances alone.  I am now well beyond a solo effort.  Your donation large or small will add up exponentially and I will draw as many individuals and organizations into my efforts as I can with this community oriented Fundraising venture.

This GoFundMe story and $250,000 Goal is being launched on Veterans Day - Saturday, November 11, 2017.

Thank you for your donation, and please remember to always recognize our veterans and to thank them for their service to our country!
