A Request...

I blatantly copied this post from Sparrow. She said it better than I could and said everything that needs saying.

LL from Chromed Curses is one of the most giving people I know. She spent hours, days and weeks putting my blog together, and she has more recently been giving a boatload of her precious free time to help a charity called America’s Wounded Heroes get their website up and running. This is a very special charity, and in case you are too lazy to click on a Sunday night, here is their mission statement:

America’s Wounded Heroes exists to:

  • Provide financial assistance to military personnel, policemen, firefighters, and EMTs wounded in service who have put their lives at risk to protect and serve American citizens.

  • Enable such persons to obtain relief in the area of special adaptive mobility equipment such as motorized wheelchairs, golf carts, segways, and other mobility devices not provided for by the government and private insurance.

  • Give such persons monetary grants for the transition from hospitals or rehabilitation facilities back to active service or monetary grants needed for the transition from hospitals or rehabilitation facilities back to civilian life.

Since this is a brand new charity, they are desperately in need of funds. Here is something you can do to help them even if you can’t spare the quid to send them any actual real-life moolah. LL says:

I’m asking you to go to VA Joe’s and vote for us. You have to join (free) and all you do is provide a username, a password, and an email address. On the next page you can fill in name and stuff, but at the bottom, you can choose to not get any email notifications and NOT fill in the personal data.


VA Joe’s will give $2,000 to the charities that get the most votes. LL asks for so little, and it’s never for her. When she asks me to jump, I say how high, how many times and where do you want me to land, MA’AM?? Take three minutes and do it.

Because LL said so. And she can beat the crap out of you.

But also because it’s the right thing to do.
