Akai Raffle and Fundraiser
Posted on December 06 2019
The bottom line is that losing someone is awful. When our immediate community is affected by such a loss, it does not go unnoticed by our team. When Kevin Stickley came to us with his idea of raising funds for the families of Eric Emond and Drew Ross, we wholeheartedly agreed to help in every way possible.
Now, It's important to us that you, as donors to the cause, understand the effort as we see it. There is no value that can ever be assigned to a human life. When we make these fundraising efforts, it's not only raising funds for a family that was blindsided by losing someone, but, most importantly, it's to show the family of the fallen that their loss did not go unnoticed. It's to answer the question that every person that has ever suffered an unexpected loss asks, "Why?"
When it comes to the deeds of the Special Forces community, the "why" isn't always clear aside from "in service to our country". Our job (every one of us) is to send the message that it matters. We're behind those soldiers and those families 100%. We're behind our nation's military and we support them in triumph and tragedy.
After serving with these gentlemen, Kevin felt compelled to do something that matters to the families and the community. Watch his video below to hear it in his own words.
