Laptops for Wounded Servicemen and Women

Over there on the right is one of those thermometers that scores donations made to Project VALOUR-IT which has a mission:
Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, helps provide voice-controlled/adaptive laptop computers and other technology to support Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries. Technology supplied includes:
  •  Voice-controlled Laptops - Operated by speaking into a microphone or using other adaptive technologies, they allow the wounded to maintain connections with the rest of the world during recovery.
  • Wii Video Game Systems - Whole-body game systems increase motivation and speed recovery when used under the guidance of physical therapists in therapy sessions (donated only to medical facilities).
  • Personal GPS - Handheld GPS devices build self-confidence and independence by compensating for short-term memory loss and organizational challenges related to severe TBI and severe PTSD.

 I know these are some tough times, but it's even tougher if you've wounded and are trying to find a way to enjoy that which you used to take for granted. Please make a donation to this cause.

If you choose to support the "Navy Team," great, but that's a friendly competition - the key thing is to support your troops who have been out there laying it all on the line in your name.

Thank you!
