10 Yr 9/11 Anniversary Manhattan to Manhattan Tour

At noon on January 25th, 2011, the creators of the 9/11 Rose Float, recently featured in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade, passed the “WE WILL NEVER FORGET” torch to the Patch Project bus. Following a brief ceremony, the bus embarked on a 9 month U.S. tour to spread awareness of the 10 Year Anniversary of 9/11, recruit organizations to wear the 10 Yr 9/11 Patches and raise funds through the sale of 9/11 Patch Project merchandise. The net proceeds gathered from the sale of the special merchandise will be donated in Manhattan, on September 11th, 2011, to the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund and the Feal Good Foundation.

From Manhattan on the West Coast to Manhattan on the East Coast, the bus will make hundreds of stops along the way at fire departments, conventions and other special events to sell the 10 Year 9/11 Anniversary items. In addition to selling patches, decals and flags to raise funds, pictures will be taken at the various tour stops with hosting personnel and community supporters. Albums with pictures from all the stops will be prepared in an album that will be presented in Manhattan to the organizations listed above.
