My work ripped off for Wounded Warrior Project fundraiser!

My work ripped off for Wounded Warrior Project fundraiser!

The first thing to point out is that I DO NOT SUPPORT WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT! To see something I did tied to fundraiser for them makes me sick to my stomach.

This morning I was working on a report and needed data on amputees. (If you read this blog, you know I link to everything I find that belongs to someone else.) I figured I'd start out with a graphic report, so I went into images.

At the top I saw these two pictures.

This is where they outright stole my work from! I was using the video camera and not taking pictures.


This video and post were for the Orlando DAV! I belong to that Chapter in the Auxiliary. I spent the time talking to these veterans, shooting the footage, editing it and putting it up on the web because I BELIEVE IN WHAT THE DAV IS DOING! The link goes to the post I put up which shows the video and not pictures so someone deliberately went to great lengths to turn video footage into a jpeg.

If anyone donated to this group thinking it was for me, for the DAV or Point Man Ministries, get your money back!

Your Vote Helps Donate $10,000 to Wounded Warriors – Vote Xcellimark

Help Donate $10,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project by voting for Orlando Interactive Digital Agency Xcellimark in the Social Madness Contest sponsored by the Orlando Business Journal.
Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) June 07, 2012

With employee family members currently serving in the Armed Forces and retired military within the group, Orlando Interactive Digital Agency Xcellimark is very supportive of the troops. That is why Xcellimark is hoping to have $10,000 donated to the Wounded Warrior Project by winning the Social Madness Contest sponsored by the Orlando Business Journal.

The contest started on June 1st and will run throughout September 19th. The first round is called “Open Phase” in which all businesses can compete within their local market (i.e. – Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, Miami, etc.). Each local market is split into three (3) categories: small companies (less than 100 employees), medium companies (100-499 employees), and large companies (500 or more employees). After June 18th, the top eight (8) companies will go on to the regional round and continue competing with the other top eight (8) companies from other local markets within the region.

In addition to bragging rights and increased online exposure, there is more up for grabs. After a couple more rounds of competition, the top three companies in the nation will be able to designate $10,000 to a charity of their choice.

"If we’re fortunate to win, our choice of charity is the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). WWP is a 501(3)(C) non profit organization that serves military service members who incurred service-connected wounds, injuries, or illnesses on or after September 11, 2001 and their families,” said Scott Lambert, President of Xcellimark.

Voting helps troops who put their lives on the line every day for America’s freedom. To vote for Xcellimark, click on the following link and vote for Xcellimark under the Small Business tab: http://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/exclusives/socialmadness About the Wounded Warrior Project

Hi John
I don't think it was WWP but the company doing the advertising on the link. I am not only angry someone just stole it but then used it for a charity I do not even believe in topping off my blood pressure.
