On September 1, 2011 Food Insurance™ announced that it was going to use its Facebook page to host a fund raising event for The Special Operation Warrior Foundation (SWOF). For each new “like” that the Food Insurance™ page received from September 1st to September 12th we decided to donate $1 to SWOF.
We chose The Special Operation Warrior Foundation for many reasons. They do a great work in assisting the families of wounded and fallen soldiers. We felt this was a particularly great cause because they take care of the families of those brave men and women that have given all to take care of all of us. This amazing foundation provides scholarships to the children of fallen soldiers and then follows up with the students throughout the time they are in school.
We did a little more checking and The Special Operations Warrior Foundation is a four star rated charity. This is the highest rating possible for a charity. This was very important to us as we wanted to get the most out of the money we donated and we knew that this was going to be the case with SWOF.
Once we announced the fund raising event on the Food Insurance™ Facebook page the response was tremendous. New “likes” started pouring in. One of the best parts was the feedback we got on our Facebook page. People shared with us their concern for the current active duty military and their admiration for our efforts in bringing awareness to such a great cause.
By the time the fund raiser was over we had raised over $2,000.00 for The Special Operation Warrior Foundation and hopefully created a greater awareness for such a worthy organization. We’d like to thank all those who participated in the fund raiser.
