Valour IT, And Adoption

Well, it's that time again... time for Valour IT's friendly little competition/fundraiser. Project Valour will provide voice-controlled laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at home or in military hospitals.

Four teams have pledged to raise $45,000 each, but the only one that counts, the only one you want to assist, is the Marine's team, led by Cassandra, of Villainous Company. From now 'til November 10th, which, you should know by now, is the Marine Corps' Birthday, you can click on the donation button in the upper right hand sidebar. What a great gift for the Marine Corps, and all military servicemen and women who will benefit from this, donating in the name of the Marines. Guys and gals who refuse to wear mint green shirts, and wear tons of "product" in their hair... like someone we know...

On a different note, but one of the same spirit, Tree Hugging Sister, of Coalition of The Swilling, is looking for folks to adopt Marines for the Holidays. To find out more, click the link, or to adopt a jarhead, drop her a line, at: thsister-at-gmail.com. Be sure to include, in the subject line, "13 Marines of Xmas."

Thanks in advance for your help!

Oh you ROCK, T1G! (I don't care WHAT the girls' room wall says!) We so appreciate getting the word out. We really do. Taking care of our little unit is for the folks who remember what getting YOUR name called at mail time is all about. If it's just a note for one Marine every couple weeks to packages ~ we are so tickled and grateful for every last thing that heads overseas to them.

Thanks, big guy.
