Project Valour-IT

First off - thank all of you who have participated so far - we've raised almost enough for 200 laptops, by my rough calculation. If that seems like a lot - we've given out over 600 to date. The need continues, and will until the last IED explodes.

Team Air Farce seems to be having a bit of a marketing problem, but since they're a renegade element of the Army, I've decided to offer them some assistance.

So - if you're a Thunderbirds fan, and would like a shot at getting some Thunderbirds memorabilia - and at the same time contribute to Project Valour-IT, go visit Laurie at Soldier's Angels, New York and she'll hook you up! Or, if one more blog will just make your head explode - go direct to eBay, here.

C'mon, a signed team poster and other good swag!

Moving back to more important things, i.e., Army Team stuff - ya can't forget your Gnomes! You *do* now that if you have gnomes and have been treating them well, they deploy with you, right? Doing their little gnomish bit? C'mon, how many of you out there don't remember all those little things that usually went wrong, or missing, but sometimes went right or showed up? Gnomes.

Well, just as sometimes we warriors never get past our vocation and deployments, so to it is with your Gnomes. So, sure, before you deployed (or your neighbor did) their gnome may have lived in something that looked like this:

Gnome Homes!  http://gnome-home.edsberg.net/

But you know your gnome would looooove one of these:

Custom-built pre-manufactured homes (with window, not shown) hand-crafted (literally, Murray pours the aluminum and hand-paints 'em all himself) in New Zealand by a Kiwi who donates one dollar from each normal sale to Soldier's Angels for Project Valour-IT and has offered up these custom Gnome Homes to Castle Argghhh!!! for this fundraiser. Comes complete with instructions!

First four receipts for $75 scores a Military Gnome Home!

C'mon, you know you want one. Or one of these...

The Cluebats of Argghhh! are back on the table too. If you missed out last time - send me a receipt for a $100 (or more!) donation, dated between 8-11 November, and I've got 20 bats available! And since the work is all done, these will ship quicker than the last ones, I promise! BTW - there's two of you from last time who never sent an address... it's hard to mail 'em without one! And don't feel compelled to donate electronically if you aren't comfortable with that. Even if the 20 bats go to Paypal donees, if you send me a snail mail receipt, I'll send you a bat.

It's a tax-deductible donation and eligible for matching funds from companies who do that sort of thing (see: http://soldiersangels.org/valour/irsinfo.html for proof for the cautious).

The snail mail address for those who'd rather donate that way (be sure to put ARMY in big letters on the check):

Soldiers' Angels
1150 N Loop 1604 W, Suite 108-493
San Antonio, TX 78248

Heh. I think Unpartisan.com's web-bot is either confused... or is a closet supporter of PV-IT!

How 'bout those who gave $75 last week?
