As The Ref Would Say.... Let's Get It On!
"Our goal is to raise enough money to purchase 30 laptops. That's about $21,000, or roughly $5250 per team over a 10-day span."
WHAT: Friendly fundraising competition for Valour-IT.
WHEN: November 2nd through Veterans Day (the 11th).
WHERE: Based in the blogosphere, spreading everywhere else.
WHY: Because giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world.
HOW: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches, with civilians "up for grabs."
The lines are drawn by service rivalry:
Zoomies (Air Force) will be led by Greyhawk
Jarheads (Marines) will be led by Holly Aho
Uber-Nerds (Army) led by Mr. Lamda Himself... Blackfive
Squids (Navy) not yet led (not joking)
