Today is a work day...

Since I'm a beltway bandit, and live contract to contract... when the client puts out an RFP (Request For Proposal) for the next iteration of work you are doing... you drop what you are doing and work the proposal.

Well, the RFP dropped Friday - so I'm working today. And will be working (while still working for the client... just doing this on my own time and at our corporate spaces, or, like today - home...)

But I can work. And I can type on this keyboard.

Which is more than the many of our wounded can do.

YOU can help. With $5 or $5,000.

Just by clicking on the graphic below, read a little, give a little. Because, literally, you can - and they can't.

Soldier's Angels is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization - all donations are tax deductible, and you will get a receipt via PayPal. Don't trust e-commerce? You can send a check to the address on the Donate Page. Aren't sure about it? Click here. That takes you to the IRS search page for registered charities - type in soldiers angels (no apostrophe in soldiers), select "all of the words" to shorten your list and they'll pop up.

And if you'd like to help us help them, steal the graphics, steal the links, and post 'em, let us know, and we'll add you to this list:

If you're a lefty blogger who wouldn't be caught dead in that list, we understand. We suggest you start your own list, and own campaign, and stuff us warmongering capitalist neocons into the dustbin of charitable giving history. I'm all for it. This is about the wounded. No more, no less. In this case, I will allow the ends to guide my means!

Take a risk! SWWBO ventured on to Daily Kos! And has been punished with silly emails - and some thoughtful ones. Why did she do that? She took up the gauntlet I threw down in my initial post:

I challenge the Blog World. Right, Center, Left. Show that you *do* support the troops - because this isn't about the war, this doesn't support the Administration, and I don't care if you want to use this as a way to *flog* the administration. This is about nothing more than us caring for our combat wounded, regardless of what you think about the war. Punish the politicians at the ballot box - but support the troops in the hospitals.

How many of *you* guys have cojones that size? (Leave aside the gender issue)

Don't have a blog? No problem! Grab this press release by clicking here. Then send it to your local media - and ask them to spread the word. Radio, TV, print - it's all good. If you can get them to put links on their webpages... even better! The more eyes, the more clicks, the more laptops going to military treatment facilities for the use of troops whose wounds prevent them from being able to use a computer. What's not to like about that? Even if you hate the war - here's a chance to put your money where your mouth is about supporting the soldier.
