FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cotapaxi Creates Commemorative Pen to Honor Wounded Warriors
These pens are currenly in stock. Please purchase the Wounded Warrior Sterling Silver Trimmed Commemorative Pen to help the Cause.
Jacksonville, Fla. (January 28, 2010) – Cotapaxi announces today the launch of the Wounded Warrior Project Pen. This pen was designed to create awareness and allow individuals to show their support of our nation’s wounded warriors. Each pen sold will directly benefit the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Commemorative pens can be purchased now at www.WoundedWarriorPen.com.
To date, over 34,000 members of our nation’s armed forces have been physically wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Studies estimate that more than 300,000 will suffer from the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. These injuries are often devastating, leaving a formerly active young man or woman unable to care for themselves. While grateful for their return, the round-the-clock care required by these wounded warriors often falls to their families, giving caregivers no choice but to leave their jobs and forego healthcare of their own.
WWP provides programs and services to assist injured veterans and their families during their recovery, rehabilitation and transition. Whether through caregiver retreats, combat stress programs, career and education services, or adaptive sporting opportunities, Wounded Warrior Project’s vision is to help make this generation of wounded warriors the most successful and well-adjusted in our nation’s history.
Carl Cetera, President/ CEO of Cotapaxi says, “My father and both grandfathers served in the military. Because I didn’t, I have been looking for a way to help these brave veterans and with the assistance of David Lombardo, my National Sales Manager, we came up with this campaign. I and everyone at Cotapaxi , are honored to have this opportunity to be part of such a powerful movement for those that protect our freedom and way of life. Our goal is to raise $10 million dollars to help the thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines that are wounded each year in combat. Please visit www.WoundedWarriorPen.com for more information.”
With every purchase, individuals will automatically be entered into a weekly drawing with the chance to win autographed baseball memorabilia from Johnny Damon, as well as to have an opportunity to win a grand prize. Johnny Damon is a National Spokesman for WWP, two time World Series Champion (2004 Boston Red Sox, and 2009 New York Yankees) and a two-time MLB All-Star (2002 & 2005).
Along with supporting the important work of the Wounded Warrior Project, contributions will qualify individuals to nominate a service member into the Wall of Heroes-Past and Present www.cotapaxi.com/wallofheroes. The Wall of Heroes was created to let that warrior in your life know how much they mean to you and a place for them to gain the recognition that they deserve. It’s a chance to say, "You Will Not Be Forgotten."
