Operation PROP

Heard of Operation PROP?  A great cause led by people wanting to give back to the community.

The following information was sent to us from the folks heading up Operation PROP, their contact info is at the bottom of the note - please consider helping if you can.

Hello,

Elliott Smith here for Operation PROP - time is closing in on our May 12 event.  We are excited to be able to reach out to people with disabilities and to make this event the best ever.

Some of you may not know about Operation PROP, hopefully the video will explain the program.  However, if you would like more information feel to contact us.

We are in need of volunteers.

Anyone who may be able to help with: graphic design, t-shirt printing, poster printing, and fundraising, please contact us either by email or phone.  We also need people to help with our May 12 event at the Raymond Airport in Raymond, Ms.  Volunteers are needed to help with loading and unloading, helping participants fill out forms and other details.

We are trying to add some fun activities that are all inclusive, so shoot us your ideas.  It would be great to add art activities, face painting, inflatable jumpers, etc.  If you have any suggestions that may benefit the event please let us know.

This will be our 3rd event.  Sharing hope and inspiration with people who have disabilities is rewarding for everyone involved and we hope you can join us in making this possible. Thank you for your time and interest in what we do.

Sincerely,

Elliott Smith

I don't have 6 minutes and 40 seconds to watch a video. Couldn't you just type a few bullet points what it's about?

Anonymous 9:55 - You need to slow down and smell the roses. This video is worth ANYBODY'S 6 minutes and 40 seconds to watch. Remember, the Rez News would not have put in on their site if it were not worth watching. Maybe you can get your wife to watch it and give you a few BULLET POINTS.

Each day brings new videos someone demands I watch to prove their point. It just gets tiring. I'd really rather read. Perhaps you misunderstand the literacy of your audience, or are aiming at those who don't know their "there" from their "they're."
