Blogger Challenge - Join the Team

The blogger competition for Project Valour-IT is launching today - and I'm joining the Marine team of Soldiers' Angel Holly Aho.

The concept was to create the teams around the military services, and use that friendly rivalry via a Blog Challenge. Holly has taken the lead for the Marine team. No, she has not served in the Marines, or any of the services, directly. But as a Soldiers' Angel she works hard to bring comfort to members of every service. Holly couldn't let her Marines down, so she's leading the way.

What: Friendly online blogging competition to raise money for Project Valour-IT, a Soldiers’ Angels operation.

There are 4 3 teams competing so far.
Army – Led by blogger BlackFive
Air Force – Led by the Mudville Gazette
Marines – led by Holly!

Goal: The goal of the Project Valour-IT fundraiser is to raise enough money for 30 new laptops with voice activated software for our wounded soldiers with hand and/or arm injuries. Each laptop costs approximately $685 plus shipping, so the fundraiser’s total goal is to raise $21,000.

How: Donate online with Paypal (button at top of this page) or send in a payment to:
Soldiers Angels
Valour-IT Fund Marine Team
1792 East Washington Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91104

When: November 2 – November 11

The men and women in the military give so much, it's our turn to repay them. Watch this space for updates often, and go give some Green!!
