Who's Wearing the 9/11 Patches

I was recently browsing the Internet to find some of the early adopters of the Original 9/11 Patch and I found this picture of Chief Mike Steh of the Herrin Fire Department in Illinois.

Chief Steh represents a fire department that first purchased the 9/11 Patches for their members back in March of 2002. For nearly 10-years, they have supported this project and made a pledge to never forget! Most important, they wear their hearts on their sleeves and share common threads with nearly 4000 other fire departments across the U.S.

With the 10 Year 9/11 Anniversary upon us, the 9/11 Patch Project is currently touring the nation with Fire Careers to spread awareness of the 10 year mark of 9/11, recruit other organizations to wear the patch and raise funds for the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, Terry Farrell Fund and the Feal Good Foundation.All the net funds from the sale of any of the 9/11 Patches, decals and pins, will be donated along with other cash donations to the funds above. Please have a look at the schedule of the tour at the Fire Careers link above and contact Craig Freeman  if you think you can host a tour-stop. Keeping in mind it costs about $1 a mile to move the bus, we'd appreciate it if you can bring a good size crowd out!

We also encourage your organization to get on the bus with us though a sponsorship. The sponsorships range from getting your name in the reflective stripe that circles the entire bus to getting a 12" logo of your company on the side of the bus. This will help raise funds and contribute to the cost of fuel for the trip that is estimated at $20,000.

For those of you with a tighter budget, you can donate a much smaller amount and get on the 9/11 Patch Projects 9/11 WALL. It only costs $9.11 to get your name on the WALL.

Thanks to all the supporters out there that have helped us keep this project going strong the past 10 Years!
