Valour-IT: Good News, and A Challenge or Three – Can You Handle IT?

The Valour-IT bloggers’ fundraising campaign is in the final days of achieving their goals to provide specially modified laptops for our wounded heroes. Blackfive, leader of the Army Team of bloggers, has this update and challenge:

Well, as you can see, there have been some changes, some very nice changes. If you go here to see the Team standings you can get the whole picture (Navy, we do have smelling salts standing by).

There are some people that have come through for both Team Army and – most of all – Project Valour-IT. They have a challenge for you, and it is best expressed by malclave:

Just sent another hundred bucks for Team Army… I’d been holding it, figuring I could help out the Coast Guard team if we met our goal soon enough.

Anyway, I was just lower enlisted stationed at a hospital in the late 80s… surely there are plenty of folks who can outdo an REMF like me, right?

Malclave and others have issued challenges. My question to you is, will you rise to the challenge, or slink away and not even give a dollar? Folks, if everyone who comes to this site in a day pitches in a dollar, it puts us roughly ten percent (okay, closer to five) towards the goal. We are only at 27 percent for the year….

There is more information, and very little time left. The countdown is on! Go check out the rest of what Laughing Wolf from Blackfive has to say.

Thank YOU!!!
