Pomp’s 25th Birthday Wish

Every year my birthday comes and goes without much fanfare. For the last 7 years I have been deployed overseas or conducting US Army training. This June 15th will be the first in almost a decade that won’t involve me wearing a uniform.

Instead of asking for gifts or throwing a huge party, my 25th birthday wish is to make a $2,500 donation to the Wounded Warrior Project. Many of my friends have benefited from the Project’s work. So many courageous men and women have sacrificed so much. By leveraging the amazing people I know, my goal is to show these warriors that they are never forgotten!

If 100 people answer the challenge and donate at least $25, we will reach the $2,500 plateau. In order to get 100 donations, I figure the campaign opportunity must be presented to 10,000 individuals. This conversion rate of 1% is definitely attainable.

If you are reading this I ask you to do 4 things:

  1. Go here and donate $25 to the Wounded Warrior Campaign
  2. Share this link on your Facebook page
  3. Tweet this link through every account you have access to
  4. Email this link to your contact list

Together we can all make my 25th birthday wish happen in 25 days.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I thank each and every one of you in advance! Email me at anthony.pompliano @ gmail.com or tweet me @APompliano!

  3. Below is a message I got from a guy in my unit during my deployment in Iraq. He sent it after seeing this campaign. We can all help make a difference!

    “Hey Pomp,
    I want to say thank you. What you’re doing for the Wounded Warrior Project is awesome and means so much to me. I still struggle with some issues from that eventful day. I’ve hidden from some of those issues and it’s wreaked havoc on my marriage and my family. I have seen a therapist for the last year and it has helped immensely. I still hide from the PTSD stigma and have dealt with the headaches and the ringing in my ears to the point that it’s “normal.” If the money you raise helps just one person, wether directly or indirectly it’s more than worth it. I can’t express enough how much respect I have for you and your cause. Wounded Warriors is one of the most beneficial causes out there and I hope dearly that you meet your goal. Thank you and good luck.”
