Let Nick Meet Taylor

On November 12th of last year, twenty-four-year-old Lt. Nick Vogt, a hometown hero, stepped on an IED in Afghanistan. He lost both legs in the blow, and his heart briefly stopped. He is now slowly getting better, but this isn't about me telling you his story. He's a huge fan of Taylor in general, and it would be phenomenal if he were to be able to meet her in person! It would be a great way to show support for our troops, and make him a little bit happier during his recovery! I understand it's a lot to ask for, even a simple letter of recognition would be amazing! http://www.ipadsforsoldiers.org/2011/12/prayers-for-nick-vogt/

-----

This is what spawned this petition(this was written and posted on the Nick Vogt Family facebook page): 
From Olivia Hoffman (Nicks sister) 
Despite a rough weekend, Nick was in pretty good spirits today. Mom told him this morning he had a surprise visitor (me). When I walked in, he responded with "dangit I was hoping it was taylor swift." Once a sarcastic big brother always a sarcastic big brother. 

-----

In less than twenty-four-hours we have reached an outstanding amount of over 1500 signatures! This really goes to show how many supporters Nick has, and what they are willing to do for him! I don't think we'll have a problem doing this for Nick!

At the suggestion of Justin Gill, we have begun to use the hashtag #NickVogt on twitter!

We have until the end of March to gain the attention of somebody! Keep on sharing! :)

      Hello everybody!

      Wow! The tremendous amount of support this petition received was phenomenal! It really goes to show how great our community is!

      I am here to say that although Nick and Taylor did not meet - she did send him a package containing a Taylor Swift t-shirt, her newest CD, and an autographed picture of her that says, "I (heart) Nick", signed Taylor. This would not have been possible without the people who shared this petition!

      Thank you again for the support!

      Wow! In just over a week, we gained over 4000 signatures! That is amazing, and couldn't have been done without the help of such a phenomenal community!

      I have been receiving emails asking if I have been trying to spread this cause past the petition. To answer this, yes, I have! I have entered Nick in the Ellen contest(mentioned in the before update) and emailed WMFD(local news station). I have asked for others to do the same, and it would be great if you could contact news stations in your area! Email me at cassidy.stidam@gmail.com if you have any questions, concerns, etc.

      Don't give up, we can do it!

      Thank you,
      Cassidy

      The progress we have made in the past two days is amazing! We are currently a few short of 3000 signatures! This would not be possible without the help of Nick's amazing supporters, and each and every one of you deserve to be recognized and thanked!

      Currently, I am looking for new ways to gain more attention to our cause! If you have the time, please fill out this http://ellen.warnerbros.com/show/respond/?PlugID=548 for Nick! He is most definitely deserving of this!

      Don't forget to tweet @taylorswift13 on Twitter and use the hashtag #NickVogt in all of your tweets! It would also be great if you shared this on Facebook! Every post makes a difference!

      If you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to email me at cassidy.stidam@gmail.com or message me here on change.org!

      Thank you,

      As a competitor within the Miss Washington Organization and the Miss America Organization, my personal platform of Joining Forces: taking action to serve America's military and their families is just what the pageant world should be about; giving back. Service men and women shoulder such an inordinate burden for us; it's time to give back and do more than just raise awareness and be appreciative!
