I had the pleasure of speaking to Mark Vital who is the founder of Sweats 4 Vets. This is a great story as you will hear. Last year Mark collected over 900 sweatshirts, this year he is looking to collect 1000 – 1100 New England Sports Themed Sweatshirts for Homeless Veterans.
This is a great story, and why I do Oscar Mike Radio. I like that Mark saw an opportunity to give a Homeless Veteran’s some comfort. I am a New Orleans Saints fan, and I could not imagine wearing a Patriots or Cowboys jersey. I would wear one if I was homeless to stay warm, but I would feel the same as the Veteran that Mark first talked to about his sweatshirt.
I am going to help Mark get the word out. I would ask anyone to go to the site and see how you can help. I will be posting updates until the end of the year and I hope Mark crushes his goal.
Lets see if we can all help Mark do this.
