This is a web-shot of the 9/11 Patch Project’s website. The project was founded by retired South Pasadena Firefighter Brett Hill in December of 2001.
The project is about getting one of the 9/11 Patches on all Fire, EMT, Police and U.S. Military uniforms; keeping the memory of the fallen heroes of 9/11 alive and raising funds for related non-profits.
The project is also open to the public. Anyone can purchase the 9/11 Patches, Decals, Pins or Flags from the online store or via a download order form (found on the same page).
All the net proceeds from the sale of patches and decals are donated to the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, Terry Farrell Fund and the Feal Good Foundation.
Advertising: The 9/11 Patch Project is about raising funds so we rarely pay to advertise. Since the project has been going since December of 2001, we have earned a pretty good ranking on Google using key words such as; 9/11 Patch, September 11 Patch, 10 Yr 9/11 Anniversary.
What we recently found interesting on Google in terms of most popular search phrases, is that searching for items, stories or pictures relating to 9/11 is seasonal. About a month out from 9/11, our site begins to light up!
In the meantime, we rely on people such as yourselves to spread the word by sharing this blog, tweeting it, putting a link on Facebook, and sending emails out to your friends with the link to the website. We appreciate you spreading the word so that we can continue selling items and raising funds.
As an experiment, we are going to add the most searched phrases on Google as of June 11, 2011. Let us know if you arrived at this page by searching: 24 hours of le mans, ethan allen, napoleon dynamite, camelot, diane lane, amy smart, lemans, doom, lily allen, or pearl harbor.
Thanks again to all of you out there that have supported the project all these years! And thanks to those who will investigate the project more after arriving here for the first time!
