Team Kadena,

Wherever I go around Kadena, I am struck by the sense of community we share and the many ways Team Kadena members demonstrate their commitment to something larger than themselves. The Combined Federal Campaign, which runs from Sept. 15 through Nov. 15, is an incredibly easy way for you to make contributions to those specific charitable causes that are most important to you.

Team Kadena's monetary goal for 2013 is $400,000, with a 100-percent contact rate, which can be distributed to any of the more than 2,600 existing charities CFC supports. Whether you have a favorite cause or want to keep your money closer to home by giving directly to overseas Family Support and Youth Programs, CFC gives you a chance "make it happen." The options are nearly limitless, but the significance of your contributions to each of these nonprofit organizations can't be overstated.

There are plenty of ways to donate -- through your unit point of contact in both Japanese and American currency, through payroll deductions as low as $1 per month for 12 consecutive months, or even directly online at www.cfcoverseas.org.

Give to this year's CFC and make it happen!
