Operation Gratitude

21st Century FOX has a Diversity and Inclusion Initiative called FOX Vets. FOX Vets is a cross divisional group committed to the community of Veterans, current service members and military supports employed at FOX. They embrace 4 core values, which are: Community, Appreciate, Connection, Education. I myself am a member, and a Navy Veteran.

I coordinated an event with FOX Sports South and FOX Vets to host an Operation Gratitude event! Employees gathered and learned how to construct Paracord Survival Bracelets. When unraveled, the paracord provides 7.5 feet of rope/string and can hold up to 500 lbs. The inner and an outer sheath can be separated and divided up to make tripwire, nets, to sew stitches or repair gear, among other lifesaving uses. Within 2 hours, our group assembled 100 bracelets – an incredible feat! Now, these bracelets can be included into care packages that will go to servicemen and women, along with emergency responders.

I’m really proud to be a part of a team that loves to give of their time to support the men and women who serve our country.
