Branch Campaign for Paul Burgett Paul Burgett
Thank you for taking an interest in this important cause. This is a campaign in support of Paul Burgett's participation in The Emergency Volunteers Project. Your donation brings Paul Burgett closer to completing the necessary training required for deployment to Israel in time of crisis. By sponsoring Paul Burgett's volunteer training and deployment cost you will be directly contributing to saving lives in Israel. Please join us in this cause, every contribution makes a difference.
I'm grateful to be able to support the people of Israel by using my professional skills of firefighting, hazardous material operations, and emergency medical services. The people of Israel need YOUR help too - so PLEASE SEND ME! We all have a part in this great and honorable work. This year is my first year in EVP and my need is especially great. I must raise funds not only deploy to Israel (I checked 48-72 hr flight costs which can range as high as $2,800), but also for my initial gear outfitting ($2,200) and cross-training both in the US and in Israel to become competent with Israeli procedures, vehicles and equipment ($2,800). All funds donated go directly to the EVP to be used only for the purpose of this work.
The people of Israel need your help! Will you say yes? Your donation of any size is significant. AFIEAF/EVP is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization in the US and the UK.
Occupation: Firefighter / EMT
Location: USA, MN, Hopkins
I'm a firefighter for the City of Hopkins MN, and a father of 4 boys. This year I visited Israel for the first time and was overwhelmed with love and affinity for the people there. It seems like so much of the world is against Israel, but I have been there and I know they are wonderful people. I'm honored to be able to serve Israel and support them with my skills and abilities. I love working at Hopkins Fire, it's a great team that is second-to-none. Been here ten years and look for to the next ten or more.
