Ok..no matter what your position on the war, here's a chance to show your support for the men and women that have served in harm's way. I know times are tight...but consider a tax-deductible donation to this current fund raising drive that will finish on November 11.
Once a year all four branches of the military get together for a competitive fund-raising effort for the incredible Project Valour-IT (sponsored by the equally incredible Soldiers' Angels). The spirited competition raises money for technology that reconnects wounded veterans and aids in their recovery. Here are a few of the ways technology assists the wounded:
Stop by the Project Valour-IT blog to read more information about the project and posts from those wounded vets who benefited from the technology. And read here, from the wife of a wounded vet about the healing power of this techonology. And if you feel moved, do click on the icon at the top of the right hand column (hey...we're Team Navy over here!) It you feel uncomfortable sending a donation over the internet, here's a snail mail address:
1792 E. Washington Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91104
