Hello, as the founder of the 9/11 Patch Project (originally the National Firefighters 9/11 Memorial Patch) I have recently updated the website and released the 10 Year 9/11 Anniversary Patches. This project has run for over 7 years and involves 5000 fire, ems, police and military org's around the world. Would love to have each of your departments on board.
The project is about sharing common threads, a uniform memorial patch that we can all wear as a lasting tribute and raising funds.
Organizations that have benefited by monetary or merchandise donations in the past are:
- The UFA Widows and Children's Fund
- World Memorial
- Terry Farrell Scholarship Fund
- San Antonio Burned Out Survivors
- Esperanza Firefighters Fund
Please visit the website when you have a moment and consider supporting this successful worldwide effort. Funds will continue to be donated and raised to host a west coast 10 Year 9/11 Event called, "Nine11-Twenty11."
Also interested in other items you might want to see with either of the designs on them (eg. window decals, ball caps, T-shirts, job shirts, military versions, etc.)
