Daytona Veterans 2-day event benefits 9/11 1st Responders
Hello All,
Our Central Florida chapter of Veterans For Peace worked together with the Orlando chapter of WeAreChange to put on a wonderful 2-day event in Daytona Beach this past weekend in marking the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
CFVFP veteran member Chris Cerullo of Kissimmee, FL, who serves as the coordinator and lead organizer for the Orlando chapter of WeAreChange did a fantastic job in organizing the event and getting people from all parts of Central and North Florida to participate in the event.  Thank you Chris.
CFVFP veteran member Harold Saive of Gainesville, FL did a marvelous job in coordinating the 2-night screening of the new film from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth entitled "9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out" as well as doing all the videography, editing and production of the 29-minute YouTube video chronicling our event featured in the article "Active Military Look for 9/11 Truth at Veterans For Peace Rally in Daytona Beach".  Thank you Harold.
CFVFP veteran member Charlie Williams of Daytona Beach, FL once again delivered for us big-time in coordinating with Steve's Famous Diner in getting his projector, movie screen, and other equipment to show the film set up and in good working order so that we could put on the film screening.  Thank you Charlie.
Thank you also to the many volunteers from WeAreChange Florida who came from as far as Melbourne, Jacksonville, Polk County, and the regular die-hards from the greater Daytona-Orlando are who once again suited up and showed up.  We also want to thank Kathy Bracewell and Annie Hansen from the East Central Florida chapter of CODEPINK Women for Peace for their huge help in so many ways.  Thank you everybody.
Even with zero media coverage or publicity, we were still able to raise $319.20 from many small donations to send off to the FealGood Foundation ... ... to help the sick and dying 9/11 first responders.  Thank you also to the good people of the Daytona Beach area who donated.

  1. Whenever I respond to a post on my blog, I do so for informational purposes, not as an endorsement of a particular issue or cause.The Feel Good Foundation referred to in the above posting supports the families of the first responders killed on 9/11. Their efforts to provide needed services is to be applauded. Any group wanting to help them gets a "hats-off" from me.
