SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that they will donate $1 to the Wounded Warrior Project for every person who ‘likes’ the club’s official Facebook page between Saturday, July 2 at noon and the conclusion of the postgame Fireworks Show following the club’s match against the New York Red Bulls.
 
Should the promotion push San Jose’s Facebook following to 40,000, the Earthquakes will double their donation to $2 per like. The promotion will be capped once San Jose’s Facebook page reaches 40,000 ‘likes’, which would result in a donation of more than $30,000 to WWP.
 
“At this time when the United States is preparing to celebrate its independence, the Earthquakes organization wanted to do its part to benefit the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to keep this country safe,” said Earthquakes President David Kaval. “Wounded Warrior Project does an amazing job of working with veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and we are excited to make a donation to their cause.”
 
In addition to partnering with WWP, the Earthquakes will express their patriotism ahead of the Fourth of July holiday by recognizing players from the 1994 U.S. World Cup squad prior to kickoff on Saturday. The club will also put on a fireworks extravaganza following the final whistle.
 
The Earthquakes host the New York Red Bulls on Saturday, July 2 at Stanford Stadium presented by Wells Fargo and Xfinity. Tickets are on sale at www.sjearthquakes.com or by calling 1-800-225-2277. For groups of 20 or more or for information about special packages, fans should call the Earthquakes’ Front Office at 408-556-7700.
 
WWP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla. with additional program offices located in New York City and Washington D.C. It was founded in Roanoke, Va. by a group of veterans and friends who took action to help the injured service men and women of this generation.
