We at Veterans For Peace work for peace on earth not just during the holiday season but also year round. Yet its only once a year that we reach out to our friends and community to ask for your support. (We dont get after you once a month, or even once a week, as some organizations do.) Were having a fundraiser at Johnny Ds in Somerville on December 4th where there will be great food and entertainment, a raffle with wonderful prizes donated by businesses all around Boston and some serious boogying by VFPers and friends, young and old. Please check out the enclosed flyer. Wed love to have you join us Dec. 4 at Johnny Ds where the cover charge is only $15.00 and the whole evening is a lot of fun. If for whatever reason you cant make it that night, we would very much appreciate for you to consider a donation to Veterans For Peace in whatever amount you can afford, in support of our work and mission.
In case youre not totally familiar with what we do heres a rundown. First off, our mission: “Veterans for Peace, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to the abolishment of war.” During the past year our members have worked hard to stop drone warfare, prevent the bombing of Syria, support Chelsea Manning and block the KXL pipeline We conduct a Memorial Day event on the Boston waterfront. We march in several parades including on Armistice/Veterans Day. We periodically serve meals at the New England Center for Homeless Vets. We support an orphanage in Vietnam and a water project in Iraq. We do extensive work with Iraqi refugees here in the Boston area. And for the past three years weve organized a St. Patricks Day Peace Parade in South Boston thats all inclusive because the Allied War Veterans Council wont permit organizations like us who have PEACE in their name, or LGBT organizations or others they deem inappropriate to march in their parade.
In sum, we know were doing important work in the cause of peace. We hope you agree and we hope you’ll support us either by your presence at our annual Johnny Ds fundraiser or with a check if you cant come. You can send donations, made out to Veterans For Peace to: P.O. Box 1604, Andover, MA 01810
Thank you very much.
