Project Valour IT

I added a donation button in my sidebar to donate to Project Valour, IT a charitable effort to provide voice-activated laptops to wounded soldiers. The donation button's at the left sidebar, just below the BlogAds.

Cassandra explains:

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.

Donations are tax deductible. You can send them to my site for more info if you don't feel like reinventing the wheel - here's my original post.

There's a competition going on among bloggers, with different bloggers raising money specifically for donations for the four different service branches. I joined up with the chicks who are supporting the Marines.

I've meant to add this for a while, but the elections got in the way.

A great cause and a way to really support the troops.
