In March 2012, we organized our first charity weekend fundraiser in conjunction with We Are One 365. We Are One 365 is a non-profit organization that has two main objectives: To raise awareness of the sacrifice made by our military and their families, and to provide financial support to veterans and active duty military families.
The weekend started with a 5-on-5 Basketball Tournament at the Boston College Flynn Recreation Complex, where 8 teams competed to
win the inaugural WAO Tournament Trophy in addition to 8 Boston Celtics tickets. That evening, our supporters in the Boston area gathered at the Baseball Tavern for our post-tournament charity
auction. All proceeds from the event went to military families in need and the Red Sox Foundation and Mass General Hospital Home Base Program. The event was well attended and served as the launch of the Boston branch of We Are One 365, which Flavor Media remains actively involved with.
About We Are One 365
We Are One 365′s mission is to build a community of individuals that raises awareness and financial support for military families each day of the year.
We are on a mission to remind America what we have forgotten. To instill in our communities what has so often been neglected. To remind ourselves
and our communities that our freedom does not come without cost.
We have been gracefully blessed with a country where tens of thousands of heroic men and women volunteer their service to protect not only their right, but every American’s right
to freedom. These men and women protect our right to go to work every day; our right to obtain an education; our right to freely exchange ideas; and our right to pursue our passions and go after our dreams.
How do we show our appreciation? How often do we think about their tremendous sacrifice? We can no longer distance ourselves from our military. Our military does not spend months at a time in foreign countries away from their families to protect just their right to freedom, but our right to freedom. We as fellow Americans need to show our consistent, unwavering support because WE ARE ONE.
To show our gratitude and appreciation for their tremendous sacrifice, we ask that you pledge support to join our organization. Pledge that when you run, walk, bike, any physical activity, you will wear We Are One 365 apparel to raise awareness of the daily sacrifice made by our men and women in uniform and to express our appreciation and gratitude for all they have done and continue to do.
