|Please Watch: 9/11 Families Participate in New Public Service Advertising Launch to Support the September 11 Day of Service and Remembrance
We are pleased to provide you with important, new information on the upcoming September 11 Day of Service and Remembrance observance. Today, we are launching a $15 million national public service awareness campaign, funded entirely through private donations and donated media space. The campaign is designed to inspire Americans everywhere and others throughout the world to voluntarily observe the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, and every 9/11 thereafter, by performing good deeds, supporting charitable causes, volunteering and engaging in other forms of service, prayer and reflection in tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors and those who rose in service in response to the attacks. It is a beautiful, uplifting and positive campaign, and we invite you to be among the first to see the new television spots that will begin appearing nationwide in greater frequency over the next few weeks.
Please view our public service announcements at our Facebook page, (http://facebook.com/911day), or by visiting our website at http://911day.org. You can also post your own special message in tribute to a lost loved one, friend or colleague.
We express our sincere gratitude to the many members of the 9/11 community that participated in this heartfelt and powerful campaign, including Mary Fetchet, Cindy McGinty, Dennis McKeon, Gary Bogacz and others – several of which appear in the national ads. You can read our full press release posted today at: http://tinyurl.com/911DayNews.
