Letter from WCFR President Jacqueline Cassagnol

▣ AUGUST 2021

Dear WCFR Supporters,

As we are planning to celebrate our tenth anniversary, two natural disasters have devastated Haiti. Our hearts are heavy. We are deeply saddened by the over 2,000 people who lost their lives in Haiti because of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake and the subsequent Hurricane Grace. 

This reminds us of the statement "If we knew what you are teaching us right now, fewer people would have died during the earthquake." Someone said this to me during a training session after the devastating 2010 Earthquake in Haiti, which caused me to break down in front of the classroom. A fire awakened inside me and eventually led me to create WCFR with a mission "to prevent deaths worldwide through education and training". Read more about our story.

Worldwide Community First Responder, Inc. has been a part of the community for 10 years. In this time, we have trained and educated over 400,000 community members in critical lifesaving skills. But, we would not have been able to achieve our goals every year without the help of supporters like you. 

To commemorate the start of our nonprofit status and celebrate a decade of “Teaching People, Saving Lives”, we are planning a special event. We are inviting you to support this event and to celebrate with us. The WCFR Tenth Anniversary in Memory of Anya Cassagnol Mass is scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd, 2021 at 3PM @ Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Spring Valley, NY.  Anya Cassagnol is my niece. She recently passed away on May 28, 2021, with brain cancer at the age of eight years old.

In recognition of our 10th anniversary, our goal is to raise $10,000. To reach our goal, we are going to need your help! Please consider supporting WCFR and participating in this event as one of our sponsors.

To show our appreciation of your sponsorship, WCFR would commit to including your organization in our email newsletters, featuring you on our website and social media outlets, and more. A sponsorship of just $250 per year can make a huge difference. Click here for more information. 

Are you ready to become a WCFR Lifesaving Partner through sponsorship?

We look forward to hearing back from you at or (845)200-3130.
In Gratitude,
Jacqueline Cassagnol, MSN, RN, PMC
