Twin City Citizens PLEASE Call, Send Cards and Letters to CHAMPION AIR!


Please Show All the Employees of Champion Air That You Care.....

In this cold, cold world of economic slug fests, the one thing a lone person can do is to show heartfelt sympathy for another's loss.

The Champion Air people deserve our condolences! All of the small companies that go out one by one, deserve to be acknowledged by their communities. The media doesn't usually follow the nameless faceless people who lose their jobs with respectful human interest stories. Rarely do you see articles about the actual laid off person and their family.

Companies get that one headline, but the people inside tend to stay invisible and do not receive the level of acknowledgement they deserve. It is time for the media to do a better job for the laid off masses.

Featuring a variety of laid off people from various industries is a positive proactive humanitarian stance in light of a stinging hard edged circumstance. Why not let the laid off person share their experience, their worry, their pain, their hopes and their plans with the readers of the news across every community? Why not?

This is my heartfelt tribute to all of the men and women of Champion Air, theirs was not just a job, it was a life’s adventure. Champion Air, you will be deeply missed!
