Care. Connect. Contribute.
Can We Count On You?
Brightening Veterans’ Lives newest campaign, “Care. Connect. Contribute.” calls on the entire bowling industry to help and support to fund bowling’s own, oldest and most successful charity.
Bowling proprietors, vendors, manufacturers, and suppliers are being encouraged to step up to support BVL with a pledge.
Bowling Centers: We will give you ways to raise this money that will be easy to implement and simple to do. From POS materials to open play ideas to “pass the hat” promotions to tournament programs, you will have all the materials you need, at no cost to you, to easily meet the pledge goal.
Other Industry Members: Consider donating a percentage of sales of an item or service to BVL. BVL has a variety of materials available for inclusion in your promotional material for any program you may devise.
Since 1942, BVL has been providing recreation therapy programs, designed to maintain or improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being as well as reduce depression, stress, and anxiety of our nation’s combat veterans.
To that end, BVL dollars have funded the purchase and use of sports equipment, arts and crafts supplies, pet therapy activities, games, dance, drama, music and community outings at VA Medical Centers, Vet Centers and State Homes around the nation.
Best of all, you’ll feel good. Your customers and community will view you more positively and you will be helping to rehabilitate these veterans who have given so much to the cause of freedom.
Unlike similar charities which may spend in excess of 50% in administrative costs, BVL spends less than 6% of all monies raised for administrative expenses, so the overwhelming majority of monies collected goes to those that matter the most; the heroic veterans in VA hospitals.
Won’t you help by signing this pledge sheet today and emailing it back to me?
Thank you, in advance, for your support of BVL – Brightening Veterans Lives
John LaSpina, Chairman,
BVL Board of Directors
