We are four business students at the University of Tennessee raising money for the Knoxville Volunteer Rescue Services (KVERS). We intend to raise $3,000 dollars to help send a KVERS volunteer to EMT School to help further his training and career. Your contribution will take stress off KVERS as they can focus their limited funding on more tangible needs.
Besides being able to help our main emergency responders here in Knoxville, we have a variety of perks. By donating $5 KVERS's very own Facebook page will give you a shout out. If you donate $10 KVERS has created bumper stickers for you to have! Donating $25 puts your name into a raffle for a KVERS Supporter shirt. A $20 donation gets you a one of a kind KVERS challenge coin. This coin comes with a card detailing its backstory. All money received goes to KVERS for sending a volunteer to EMT School.
If you can help us reach our goal, then KVERS can continue successfully serving our city. These volunteers responded to over 1800 calls last year. With the lack of funding for this nonprofit it is hard for them to keep running. They have already had to close down one of their stations. With your donation KVERS can continue saving lives daily.
The Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad faces a very large problem. Many citizens of Knoxville do not know that KVERS is a struggling nonprofit. They run mainly off of donations. However, since many have no idea they are a nonprofit with limited funding they choose not to help the cause. We intend to solve this by helping educate the public and spreading the word of KVERS and their troubles.
If you cannot donate now, there are other ways to help our cause. First, you can actually volunteer to help or donate at your closest KVERS station. Another way you can help, you can share this website with the Indiegogo share tools or even by word of mouth!
Thank you for your time and consideration!
