Just over a year ago I wrote about a trip to Champaign Illinois to visit a friend who lost someone in the line of duty. The experience was humbling for me to say the least. In light of all the things going on in the world, for me the Police are still important people. The death of Chris Oberheim hit a lot of people but not as many as his wife and family. This weekend I finally met Amber Oberheim in person as she decided to have Julie take over the web store for the foundation she started after Chris’ death.
Peacemaker Project 703
The long and short of it, is Amber Oberheim started the charitable foundation known as Peacemaker Project 703. You can read about the organization’s mission on their website and Facebook Page. Along with the foundation she started raising money through donations as well as selling some really nice gear like shirts and hoodies. Long story short, the previous company wasn’t able to do what Julie and STK Promotions can do.
After visiting last year and finally meeting Amber it seemed like “all things happen for a reason”. This weekend Julie took in all her current inventory, and we launched her new Peacemaker Project 703 Store in time for the holidays. Please do take some time to check it out, and even make a purchase to support the foundation.
