Valour-IT ... Go Army!

Well, the competition for bragging rights among the services teams is fun to watch. But we have our work cut out for us ... even the Army team is barely a quarter of the way to our goal of $60,000!

It's time to pull out the stops and spread the word ... take the Gollum 'Three Friends' Challenge: You get three friends/relatives/passing acquaintances to donate, and they get three folks to donate, and so one.

Spread the word! Share the Donation link with your friends and family!

Make sure you check out the Valour-IT auction site, there are plenty of interesting items to bid on. For instance:

Check out the message from Patti Patton-Bader at Chuck's place. And be sure to see what Badger 6 offers to those who donate. But whatever you do, don't go to Lex's place ... think of the kittens!

Lefty bloggers have donated (including fellow Denizen Trias), righty bloggers have donated, folks who don't care about politics have donated.

Remember the most important part ... this isn't about supporting the war, global warming, or the next elections. It's about helping the men and women who have given of themselves, and been wounded. It's about taking their quality of life up a notch, and keeping them in touch with their loved ones and friends. It's about giving something back to the people who have put their lives on the line for us.

It's easy - just click on the Donation button in the graphic at the upper right of the page, and pop $10, $25, $100 into the pot. And if you're a blogger, join a team and spread the word!

Don't forget to read what the troops themselves have said about the impact of receiving their laptops, at blogs like Sgt Hook and Blackfive (Army team leader). Or read about JR Salzman at Fuzzilicious Thinking, and see what JR is up to these days.
