Project Valour IT
Every cent raised goes DIRECTLY to purchasing and shipping laptops, software, and equipment to wounded service members.
The project came together when a recently wounded milblogger, Capt Zeigenfuss, and another blogger, Fuzzybear Lioness (FbL) realized they shared a vision of creating libraries of laptops with voice-controlled software that could be brought to the bedsides of wounded soldiers whose injuries prevented them from operating a standard computer. FbL contacted Soldiers' Angels, who offered to help develop the project, and Project Valour IT was born. Project Valour IT honours our wounded servicemen and women, and also honours the memory of both their respective fathers, who taught them lessons of courage and generosity.
Please spread the word to all your local papers, radio stations, friends,church groups, office co-workers, golf buddies, and find some creative fun exciting ways to raise donations; how about a bowling for donations tournament, or a neighborhood car wash, or a bake sale...or just donate on your own,through paypal.
And to all those in media that spent WEEKS chasing after me for interviews, why not give the George Smith story a rest, and help draw attention to this wonderful project by giving it some coverage.
Let's help them turn this into a successful mission!
