Project Valour-IT on BlogTalkRadio

The annual fund raiser to provide injured American servicemen with voice command laptops is going on now. Hear more about it on BlogTalkRadio’s My Point Radio.

Project Valour-IT From October 29 to November 11, the annual Project Valour-IT fundraiser is seeking donations to provide voice-controlled software and laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at major military medical centers.

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.

My Point Radio had a talk with Patti from “Soldier’s Angels” about Project Valour-IT on October 31. You can catch the archive to learn more about this noble event, visit the Valour-IT blog or check out the Soldier’s Angels website.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Valour-IT is an IRS-certified non-profit (donations are tax-deductible) and is non-political. Regardless of ideas about how/why war is being waged, the fact is that people are wounded and need our help. Valour-IT is about supplying that help, not about endorsing or opposing the reasons why it’s needed.

100% of the donations go directly to providing laptops with voice activated software to our wounded warriors. We have a friendly inter-branch rivalry going, but all funds are merged to help our warriors. Know any soldiers, sailors, airmen or marines? Add your funds to the rivalry. If you’re a blogger, you can team up by service branch, have friendly competition to reach the fund raising goal first, and spread the word off line through community contacts, etc.

BlogTalkRadio – 9-11 Tribute Show

On September 11th, 2001 the lives of the American people were changed forever. 2996 Lives were lost that fateful day.

This year, on the 5th anniversary of what we have all come to know as 9/11, Blog Talk Radio and The Blue Doodle got together and paid tribute to the 2996 people lost on that day.

Alan Levy of Blog Talk Radio and Amy Domestico from The Blue Doodle hosted a night of readings that included personal tributes, poetry, and music, all dedicated to the victims of 9/11, and the people who risked their lives to help in the aftermath. Hero’s every single one of them, who deserve the highest honor we can give to them, and they, nor their heroic acts should never ever be forgotten.

We want to take this opportunity to thank the people involved…….
Special readers included:

Dale Roe creator of the 2996 project
Jaime Mintun
Lamont Carey/spoken word artist
One Wise African/spoken word icon and motivational speaker
Rene Reyes International Poet Laureate
The Pod Poet from Hellicane
Dr Jim Messina from Coping.org
Doyle Armstrong from 9/11 hero’s

And honored we were to be joined by Brian Humphrey from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Last but not least two people behind the scenes Bob Charish and Kate D, who with their expertise, we were able to bring to you this show.

Of course also a special thanks to the people who spent the countless hours getting to know the person they paid tribute to, and for doing such a fine job.
