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.
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.
