Easter Good for Troops and their Families
Here's a great cause that I wanted to share with you about a contest for the families of military men and women who are serving overseas. This contest will give these families a chance to win a free laptop and Web cams to improve their communication with their loved one while they are away serving their country. The contest, Laptops for Flattops, invites participants to submit a 400 word essay that explains why their family deserves to win, and how a laptop can improve their lives and communication with their loved one serving overseas. Families must be able to verify their loved one’s military enlistment. Let's face it, online is the only way to go! I remember when I was in Korea getting a letter from home once a week and sending one home once a week. By the time you got any news it was old or events changed by the time you got the word. If you know of anyone, as I stated above, then have them participate in All-American Direct's Laptops for Flattops and...if ya have a few bucks laying around please give to Soldier's Angels Project Valour-IT. Project Valour-IT helps provide voice-controlled/adaptive laptop computers and other technology to support Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries. So if you're into giving thanks (cause it's almost Easter...damn it!) (oops...forgive me, Lord) give it in the form of a tip-off, such as the Laptops for Flattops, or money to such fine organizations as Soldier's Angels.
