ASAP - Vote for Military Widow finalist for 2010 L'Or

Post by Nomad »

From SOCNET and a good cause. Voting ends today or tomorrow, I believe.

My name is Tara Fuerst, and I'm a veteran and military widow. My husband, SSG Joseph F. Fuerst III was killed in Afghanistan on June 24, 2006. To keep it short, my life was hell for 2 years, until I met other young military widows. Thanks to Taryn Davis and the American Widow Project, many military widows across the country have found comfort and understanding. Please help and vote for Taryn Davis for the 2010 L'Oreal Women of Worth award. See below and you will be inspired to vote and share her direct voting link. We need as many votes as we can get. The winner will receive a $25,000 donation towards their organization. This could fund an entire year of events for the American Widow Project. I thank you all in advance for your support and vote. Her direct voting link is below, as well as a little bit of her story. Again, only 2 days left and we really need our military community support to win this!

Military widow, Taryn Davis, has been chosen out of over 2000 nominations as one of the 10 finalists for the 2010 L'Oreal Women of Worth award! There are only 2 days left to vote! Please help us and support the American Widow Project and Taryn Davis for this award. Every single vote counts! Please google L'Oreal Women of Worth and vote for 2010 Honoree, Taryn Davis!

In 2007 Michael Davis lost his life while serving his country in Iraq. At a mere 21 years of age, Taryn Davis became a widow. In the wake of this tragedy, Taryn began to discover that resources were scarce for young military widows. To reach out and support other young women who had lost a husband in service, Taryn began The American Widow Project (AWP).

Four months after learning of her husband’s death, Taryn began work on a documentary, speaking to military widows across the country, and hearing their stories of love, tragedy and survival. The documentary was shown to military widows who came from all over the U.S. to Austin, TX in July 2008, for the official "launch" of the American Widow Project. Since then, the AWP has conducted events throughout the country to unite military widows to celebrate their survival, honor their loved ones sacrifice, and provide a healing environment with others who share this journey.
I think this is a cause where we can all rally behind.

RLTW!
