I know that Townhall, and this blog in particular, have some of the most generous readers out there when it comes to giving to charities to help good folks out. That's why I'm excited to write again this year about the VALOUR-IT project, which raises money to get voice-activated laptops to our wounded troops, when they find themselves back from combat and unable to type.

For some of them, a VALOUR-IT computer is their first taste of independence during the long road to full recovery. It can be a distraction from pain, a connection that overcomes the isolation of a hospital room, and a reminder of what they have been and will be again. It seems a small thing, but a laptop can mean a lot.

Which brings me to the good part. You can help to get these amazing computers to our wounded vets. All you have to do is click below and start helping!




You may notice the rockin' Air Force logo on my widget. Why Team Air Force? As the proud grand-daughter of a WWII bombardier and daughter of an Air Force man, my parents met on Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, so I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the Air Force.

So, I'm part of Team Zoomie in this little service rivalry, and I invite all of y'all to join me! The team needs your help to crush all comers, and more importantly, there are a bunch of vets out there who need your help. Now, let's get to work!
