Why?

Give To CASA On This Day? We need your help to support the abused
and neglected children in our community. We need lift up a child that they
can have a safe and loving environment. CASA will provide a voice for
them and speak for them to receive the care they need.

What Amount Should I Give?

Any amount helps but we are asking for $10.00, think about it …. that’s
two cups of coffee from Starbucks, not even a lunch out. If everyone that
reads this gives $10.00 or more, we can provide an Advocate for each of
the abused and neglected children we help in our community.

You have been reading some very disturbing stories of the terrible things happening to children in our community in our local paper. Most of the
often horrific physical or sexual abuse endured by the children will never
be in our newspapers in order to protect the children from being victimized
again by the publication of their pain, humiliation, and shame. We know,
you would save them from it if you could. We at CASA work to help insure
that it won’t happen again, BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please do these three things:

1)     MARK THIS LINK- Put November 9th on your calendar and add this
giving link.

2)     BUILD THE BUZZ- Follow us on Facebook and help build the buzz.

3)     SPREAD THE WORD- Forward this email to your family and friends
along with a personal note as to why you believe in our work, and why
they should give to CASA of Greater Prince William on November 9th.

Please be a champion for the child victims of abuse. Help build the
momentum and lift up a Child’s Voice, A CHILD’S LIFE.

Sincerely,

Charlyn Hasson-Brown

Executive Director

Dear Friend,

It’s unconscionable!

Our leaders in Congress are actually considering cutting 10 critical benefits that affect our nation’s service members, veterans and their families. VFW is calling it the “10 for 10” plan—cutting 10 benefits to pay for 10 years of war. Read more about it.

We can’t let this happen! VFW needs every member to sign this important petition. We’ll let Congress know we have the full force of the VFW membership behind us, and we won’t let them level unjust funding cuts on our defenders and their families!

Sign the Petition

America’s debt crisis calls for tough decisions. That’s a given. But there is no way we’ll allow them to make budget cuts on the backs of veterans.

You can also help by getting your Facebook friends involved! We need every VFW member to stand up and be heard!

Comrade, thank you for acting quickly at this critical time.

Can one person make a difference?

Why not donate your unused computer time to World Community Grid and the finding cure for one of the most neglected tropical diseases in the world that is infecting more than two million children and adults in 97 countries each year.

Bloggo has been donating his computer’s crunching numbers capabilities to the World Community Grid since 2004. Join my team or do your own individual thing. What you contribute to the scientific research community is invaluable. To join my team “Oliver Apophysis” go here, sign up, and download the software. It runs in the background and only when you are not currently using your computer. Like I said I’ve been doing it since 2004 and it doesn’t interfere with my computing whatsoever.

  • If they have not yet joined World Community Grid, then
    copy and paste the web address below. When you register, the team will be automatically selected for you. Know that you
    will still need to download and install the World Community Grid
    software.
