Project: Valour IT 

Soldier's Angels is raising money for PROJECT: Valour IT  ~  Voice-Activated Laptops for OUR Injured Troops

I encourage you to click the donation button to the left and contribute today! For more information, read below. I stole this from our team leader, Matt, at BlackFive.

"At that time I had no use of either hand. I know how humbling it is, how humiliating it feels. And I know how much better I felt, how amazingly more functional I felt, after Soldiers' Angels provided me with a laptop and a loyal reader provided me with the software. I can't wait to do the same, to give that feeling to another soldier at Walter Reed." - Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss at TC Override

Want to be part of something big?

Valour-IT's online fundraising competition begins today! Let's see who can raise the most money to help reconnect our wounded warriors with the world!

 WHAT: Friendly fundraising competition for Valour-IT.

WHEN: November 2nd through Veterans Day (the 11th).

WHERE: Based in the blogosphere, spreading everywhere else.

WHY: Because giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world.

HOW: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches, with civilians "up for grabs." The lines are drawn by service rivalry:

Jarheads (Marines) will be led by Holly Aho

Zoomies (Air Force) will be led by Mrs. Greyhawk

Squids (Navy) will be led by Mrs. Smash.

Doggies (Army) led by Blackfive

Non-military bloggers should choose a branch (read: the Army) to support. Now, normally, I don't take part in the gentle brutal inter-service rivalry, especially during war. But this is for a very important charity. Every donor during this time will receive a Soldiers' Angels Coin.Tell your friends, family and neighbors about Valour-ITPut up these flyers around your community (I put one up at my local Starbucks).

Donate NOW!!!
