Vincent D'Onofrio Committed to the Utah Meth Cops Project.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. We encounter them every single day, whether or not we recognize them as such. The true heroes do not do what they do for fame, glory, awards, rewards, or even thanks. They do it because that’s who they are.
True heroism is a generosity of spirit that is innate—a purity of heart and bravery in the face of all fears. And actor/director Vincent D’Onofrio understands this. That is why he chooses to support the Utah Meth Cops Project.
The Utah Meth Cops Project was established in 2007 with the purpose of delivering a detoxification program to law enforcement personnel whose health and quality of life have been affected by exposure to toxic methamphetamine labs. This detox program is run on strictly a humanitarian basis with no cost at all to the officers. While visiting his sister Toni Jorgensen in 2008, Vincent D’Onofrio met Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff and learned about the very important work being conducted by the Project, and he has joined the cause with a passion. He has become their national spokesperson and tries to raise awareness whenever and wherever he can.
Vincent D'Onofrio has promised that he will not stop helping until all officers who want help can receive it. At a recent fund raising event, Vincent stated, “The dedication of these workers is selfless, and we owe them for doing this dangerous work that we cannot do. These workers WILL NOT ask for your help, which is why I am asking for them. And I will never stop!” We, Vincent’s fans, also want to honor and help these first responders and have created this calendar with the blessing of Vincent and his sister. All proceeds from the sales will go directly to the Utah Meth Cops Project.
Information on ordering YOUR own copy of this calendar is available HERE. You may order a regular calendar or, from now until September 30, 2012, you may pre-order an autographed calendar, signed just TO YOU by Vincent himself! Thank you for helping our heroes with your purchase!
