I am proud to announce that GP Reader “Tim” and I will both be donating $2,000 each to the Soliders’ Angels charity. Tim generously agreed to match my “vote total” dollar-for-dollar when I first announced the fundraising effort as part of the Weblog Awards contest.
Although the total votes was less than 2,000 (partly because of throwing our support to BratBoySchool), Tim and I agreed yesterday that we will both donate the full $2,000.
I actually tried last week (via PayPal) to donate my half of the $4,000, but it wasn’t working. So I’m going to write a check tonight and mail it. I will scan a copy of the check for anyone who doubts my word.
I also would ask all of you to consider donating to Soldiers’ Angels this Christmas season. They are a great organization that brings a bit of home to our soldiers’ serving overseas.
Finally, a reminder that this is “Thank A Soldier Week.” Just do three simple things…..
Say “Thank You” to at least one member of the Armed Forces as you pass them on the street.
Send an email to a soldier serving overseas, separated from loved ones during the holiday season. Use our simple form – click here.
Make a donation to one of the many charitable organizations providing comfort to the troops and their families at home.
God Bless Our Troops!
