Bounce Energy Supports Veterans Through the Boot Campaign
July 16, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsHOUSTON, TX - Bounce Energy, a quickly growing Texas power company, is supporting United States veterans in the month of July through a social media fundraising campaign with the Boot Campaign.
For the entire month of July, Bounce Energy has joined with the Boot Campaign by helping them raise money for their partner charities and the veterans they help. Always seeking to be "more than just an energy company," Bounce will be donating $5,000 to the Boot Campaign, plus an additional $0.50 for every new Bounce Energy Facebook "Like" and Twitter follower. Also, for every new customer who signs up with Bounce, and enters the promotion code "bootcampaign" at checkout, they will donate an additional $50 to the Boot Campaign.
The men and women who make up our military regularly put themselves in harm's way to defend the freedoms that the rest of us enjoy daily. Unfortunately, many of these veterans have returned from Afghanistan and Iraq over the last decade of conflict only to fight new conflicts that range from mental and physical injuries to unemployment in a weakened economy. Thankfully, there are organizations like the Boot Campaign working hard to honor the sacrifices of these veterans and their families. The Boot Campaign is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that raises funds for the needs of these brave men and women and does so by raising awareness through the wearing combat boots to create a striking visual.
In the words of The Boot Girls, "We believe that no single organization has ability to solve the diverse and complex issues that surround our returning heroes. It is our mission to find the best programs available today for relevant issues through a short list of partner charities. When we sell our signature combat boots, we generate necessary funds to grant to military programs doing great work with our military and giving them hope for a future as they transition home."
Celebrity supporters of the Boot Campaign include Dolly Parton, Mack Brown, Nolan Ryan, Gary Kubiak, James Carville, Deborah Duncan, and Kathie Lee Gifford. Bounce Energy joins with these media figures in their support of the mission of the Boot Campaign.
