As you know, HTDFO hopes to empower people to grow through any type of loss and adversity, but it was founded in memory of our father who we lost on 9/11.
As the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 approaches, Hold The Door For Others is asking people to visit our blog and leave answers to the below questions in the comments for a special section on our website. Feel free to share additional thoughts and tributes as well.
Our goal is to remember and pay tribute to those lost on 9/11 by sharing our stories of our growth and hopefully help others who are struggling. Our hope is to inspire people and help them help themselves through you sharing your experience.
If you did not lose someone on 9-11, you are welcome to share your responses to any of the questions as well. We believe that we can all open doors for one another…
Who do you want to thank for their support over the last 10 years?
How have you grown since 9/11?
What are you most proud of?
What advice would you give others who face adversity?
Let us know in the comments how you held the door today or this week!
This summer a group of children decided they were going to raise money to support our initiatives. They raised over $1500. But the real support came from meeting them and seeing how much they believed in helping others. Thank you to the Casey Family and their Taekwondo community (www.caseysata.com).
Please join us in thanking their team for helping our team.
As promised, the first pictures on our HTD blog are of your efforts!
