Celebrate the Marines Birthday and Give Something Back – Project Valour-IT

A friendly fundraising competition for Project Valour-IT is happening in the blogging world.
Dates for this: November 2nd through Veterans Day (the 11th).
Why do you ask?: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 it works: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches.
Additional information: every donor during this time will receive a Soldiers’ Angels Coin. And they are beautiful!

Thank you Cox and Forkum

Holly Aho stepped up to the challenge of being the leader of the Marine Branch of the fundraising.

Wild Things Comment……
Please donate to this worthy cause that will ensure our Warriors who have been injured to receive voice controlled software and laptop computers. They had our six and this is a great way we can say thank you and show them our support.

ANOTHER good site on Valour IT – One of the BEST programs out there! You can only use so many “baby wipes!” 😉

Project Valour-IT – A Worthy Cause!

I see hundreds of them on the road and in parking lots every day. All different colors and designs. Some yellow, some red, white and blue, some a combination. They all say the same thing. There is a yellow one…

Wild Thing says:

Hi Barb, nice to see you. It is always nice when someone likes the graphics and helps themselves to them.
The one you chose I made myself so I am thrilled you like it. Thank you for liking it.
Thank you too for your response.
