Valour-IT Fundraising Competition

It's here! The Valour-IT 2006 Fundraising Competition, October 30 to November 10. The goal: $180,000 for Valour-IT.
Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, provides 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. Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone, our wounded heroes are able to send and receive messages from friends and loved ones, surf the 'Net, and communicate with buddies still in the field without having to press a key or move a mouse. The experience of CPT Charles "Chuck" Ziegenfuss, a partner in the project who suffered severe hand wounds while serving in Iraq, illustrates how important this voice-controlled software can be to a wounded servicemember's recovery.

Bloggers have broken up into four teams, Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force, each with a goal to raise $45,000.


I just wanted to pass on the word about the fundraising competition (in between packing, and working a crazy schedule flipping between 11 pm to 7 am shifts and 3 pm to 11 pm shifts due to some temporary shortages at work,lol. Can anyone say 'What is sleep?" :) I logged on for 'just a second' to check my emails and saw the news about the competition....no time even to join a team, or join all the teams.....so I'll just say go to this page 

and you can choose which team you want to make your donation through. Thank you! if you can donate to this worthy cause!!
God bless our troops.
