Thanks, Next Year, and support letters

I want to thank you for supporting the Pink Ribbon Tour and the
“Cares Enough to Wear Pink” Campaign.
The project was a total success with nearly 300 departments and different leaders throughout the Country getting involved to help raise awareness for our women in their fight against cancer, specifically breast cancer. Each one of these departments are starting their own fundraisers and giving it to an organization that helps their women close to home. I commend you for seeing that pink represents a lot more than the fight against breast cancer, it represents probably the single most important thing we have in our lives, our women. I hope that with time, I will have the ability to speak to different departments about how this program was started, where it is headed and how we can help each department raise more money for their women.
The Guardians of the Ribbon grew in time to support all our women in the fight against cancer as a whole. We will spread the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” Campaign just like before but support all our women in their fight with Cancer. We will ask that all the awareness and fundraising still be geared toward your women of your communities. We believe it is vital to support the women who support our organizations and especially the ones that we serve on a daily bases. I am currently planning our next tour for 2009, we will call it the Pink Heals Tour and try and hit some of the same cities as before. We hope to add a pink fire truck every year and grow this into a huge support group for all.
As all of you know, I am still a fire fighter for the City of Glendale Arizona and getting time off and keeping my job will take a joint effort from my administration and all you folks that support this project. I would love for all of you to please write a letter of support and tell a brief comment on how this truck helped your community and the impact it had on your department.

Thanks again for your leadership and support and I look forward to seeing some of you in 2009.
Sincerely, Dave Graybill
