It is imperative that Americans don’t forget the tragic events that occurred on September 11th and to always remember those who died at the hands of terrorists, so that these types of tragedies never happen again.
Novi, MI (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
To commemorate the upcoming 10 year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Memorial Bracelets has committed to donating the $2.00 raised from the sale of each bracelet and dog tag to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund from September 11, 2010 - 2011.
Memorial Bracelets is partnering again with The Twin Towers Orphan Fund because it was the first charity they supported in 2001 after the fall of the World Trade Center, the destruction at the Pentagon, and the downing of the four airliners. Between 2002 - 2003, Memorial Bracelets donated $10,000 to The Twin Towers Orphan Fund. From September 11, 2010 to February 11, 2011, they have already donated an additional $10,000. "Our Goal is to donate over $25,000 by the ten year anniversary," said Rob Tacy, President of Memorial Bracelets.
The non-profit Twin Towers Orphan Fund was founded to help the children who lost parents on 9/11. "Sadly, though nearly 10 years have passed, this tragedy is still very fresh in the memories and emotions of those left behind. As such, the varying degrees of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that many of the children experience are amplified during important stages later in their lives, such as puberty, entering college, and getting married," said Michele Ritter, Co-Founder/CEO of the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. "Rob understands the uniqueness of the children we serve, and we are forever grateful for his efforts and the generosity of the people who support the website. The donations from Memorial Bracelets will go a long way in providing the assistance the children require at every stage in their childhood." she added.
To help raise additional funds, to remember the tragedy of September 11th, and to honor all those who perished, Memorial Bracelets is also offering Commemorative Message Bracelets and Dog Tags. The commemorations are three line messages such as GONE … BUT NOT FORGOTTEN, ALWAYS IN MY HEART and WE WILL NEVER FORGET, with SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, TEN YEARS LATER - 2011 also engraved. "It is imperative that Americans don't forget the tragic events that occurred on September 11th and to always remember those who died at the hands of terrorists, so that these types of tragedies never happen again," said Rob.
About Memorial Bracelets
With the launch in October of 2001 of the Memorial Bracelets website located at http://www.memorialbracelets.com , the idea of wearing a bracelet to support a cause was revitalized by Rob Tacy. The site was created to raise funds for September 11th heroes and victims of terrorism. Since its inception, by donating $2.00 of every bracelet or dog tag purchased, Memorial Bracelets has donated over $105,000 to charities supporting these families and those of Vietnam POWs and MIAs, and U.S. soldiers wounded or fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan.
