Valour-IT Fundraiser

Thank you to all who gave to the Valour-IT Fundraiser. And, thank you to all of the bloggers who teamed up to get the word out to everyone.

The preliminary total is

Valour-IT provides laptops computers with voice recognition software for the wounded troops with hand/arm injuries. These computers aid them in their communication abilities. They may not be able to type an email or open an email, but they can speak to the computer and it will do it for them. This provides them the ability to remain connected to their family and friends while undergoing treatment for their wounds.

Sometime today, think of some little thing you do with your hands - dress, brush your teeth, comb your hair, eat, read the newspaper, work on the computer - now imagine not being able to do that for yourself. You can only imagine how freeing Valour-IT computers are.

Our fundraiser may be over - though checks are left to count - but you can still make donations.
