Weekend Edition: Standing UP For Veterans – Let’s ROLL!!!

By Craig Andresen on January 12, 2013 at 5:44 am

This weekend, I would like to let my fellow Patriots in on a VERY special project.

We hear every day about Veterans who are unemployed.

It’s shameful. These are our heroes.

Many Veterans have great ideas and dreams of having their OWN business. What they lack is the knowledge or the capital to turn those dreams into reality.

In today’s uncertain economy and amid news of businesses cutting back on employee’s hours and staff numbers altogether, it’s harder than ever for our Veteran heroes to find work.

What if I told you that YOU could help change all that?

YOU CAN!!!

First, if YOU are a Veteran or KNOW a Veteran, MAKE SURE THEY SEE THIS ARTICLE. THIS WILL CHANGE LIVES!!!

Many of you are familiar with Don Smith and the Don Smith Show.

It has been my great pleasure to appear, many times, as a gust on Don’s show over the last couple of years. Don is one of the great Conservative voices in radio.

When Don called me a few days ago, asking a favor, and telling me it was for our Veterans…I had but one question.

How can I help?

Don has set up a non-profit organization called, All American Veterans Services. He has partnered with Regus and Legalzoom.com to create a Dream Machine for our Veteran heroes.

All American Veterans Services is asking for YOUR help so that THEY can assist our Veterans to start their own businesses.

Through the month of January, AAVS is conducting their first nationwide fundraising event and it will culminate with the selection of a military veteran who will receive a comprehensive new business start up package.

This package will include EVERYTHING a Veteran will need to START HIS OR HER VERY OWN BUSINESS!!!

And if you think it’s a “here’s your folder of info and see ya later” proposition…THINK AGAIN!!!

Included is ONGOING MENTORING AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR THE WINNER!!!

The goal of AAVS is not just set a Veteran UP in business but, TO MAKE THAT BUSINESS A SUCCESS!!!

Take a look at the AAVS Mission Statement:

With a strong dedication to providing assistance to All American Veterans, AAV works with the men and women who served in the armed forces to create opportunities vital to ensuring a healthy and productive transition from military to civilian life. This mission is accomplished by providing at no charge:

  • Assistance in developing the skills required to obtain sound employment, including actual job placement services
  • Professional business planning advice, training, and financial assistance required to start a new business
  • Family counseling services to ensure emotional stability during the transition process from active duty to civilian life, and beyond
  • Access to an experienced network of housing assistance programs within local communities around the country

If you’re tired of all the “talk” about creating jobs and growing the economy, now’s your chance to make a difference. With your donation to ALL American Veterans, you will be helping the men and women who have sacrificed so much for all of us. Your donation will help build self-esteem, create jobs, and make a difference in local communities across this great nation. Contribute today to show your support for our country’s veterans, and become a part of the solution.

Here’s how it works:

  • Veterans will submit business plans to the Board of Directors
  • The board will determine the finalists, provide coaching and feedback in preparation for the final round of business plan submissions
  • The selected veteran will receive a complete business start-up package including:
    • Free business filings and legal documents prepared by our expert partner LegalZoom.com
    • 6 months of office space in a Regus business center. Regus is the world’s largest provider of workplace solutions, operating over 1,200 business centers globally. Products and services include fully furnished and staffed offices, meeting and training facilities and the largest network of public video communications studios, all allowing individuals and companies to work however, wherever, and whenever they need
    • Branding services including; website development, logo creation, and public relations efforts to help launch the business
    • Aid in securing financial assistance
    • Coaching from industry experts in all aspects of business management

Listen…We’ve all heard of “non-profits” that take a sizable chunk of their donations for administrative costs and, we all wonder when we donate…Just how much goes to the actual target of the project.

Right?

Well, with AAVS…

100% of your donations go to the target project.

100%.

Nothing…ZERO…Not a red cent goes toward administrative costs.

BELIEVE IT!!!

This year, it’s ONE Veteran getting a business off the ground but, if you think this is a one per year idea…It’s NOT.

AAVS is working toward a goal where, year after year, up to 100 Veteran heroes will see THEIR business ownership dreams become a reality!!!

I want you, as a Veteran or an interested donor or mentor to visit the AAVS Website by CLICKING HERE!!!

By the way…Those who make donations to AVSS before the end of this month become eligible for special prizes; including autographed copies of select New York Times best selling books, autographed by the authors. Details will be announced throughout the month on our website. www.allamericanvets.com

Friends, The Don Smith Show airs Saturday’s at Noon EST and you can Listen by CLICKING HERE!!!

You’ll want to catch today’s show as Don has interviewed TED NUGENT and will air that interview today.

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little off the air, behind the scenes secret.

After the interview, Don and Ted chatted about this project and AAVS.

Get this…Ted told Don… “Don, I’m going to put together a package of things that will blow your mind.”

Have you EVER known Ted Nugent to do ANYTHING in a SMALL way?

Nope. Me either.

Come on Patriots!!! Let’s make this happen.

Our Veterans have stood up for us and because of them, we have our freedom. We CAN’T let them down.

Get involved. Donate to AAVS and become a Mentor.

We have all been looking for a way to help, something positive and a way to thank those who have given so much to us.

YOU CAN’T DO BETTER THAN TO HIRE A VETERAN UNLESS…YOU GIVE A VETERAN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HIRE YOU!!!

ALL AMERICAN VETERANS SERVICES!!!!!
