Soldier’s Angels Fundraiser Status: A Weekend of Valour-IT
Thanks to all who have helped with this excellent project, this year and the 6 before. A link to the donation page is in the first line of the article. Laptops and other supporting electronics are making their way into the hands of those in need!
So far, the Project Valour-IT Fundraising competition resulted in over $15,000 in new funds for adaptive laptops and iPads for wounded troops! It’s already going to work, with over 25 laptops distributed since the fundraising began on July 4, and more to come as the donations continue. Have you donated yet? Have you told a friend or family member who can help? You have the power to change a hero’s life!
This last weekend, five laptops were shipped for distribution at the Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, and several more were sent to the hospital at Camp Pendleton. At Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) and the Soldiers’ Angels Support Center (SASC) in San Antonio, 11 laptops and iPads were hand-delivered to wounded warriors who will use them to reconnect with the world, address their TBI-related challenges and transition to post-military life. These bits of electronics and plastics are powerful—they change flesh-and-blood lives.
