We are running our annual Valour-IT Fundraising Competition four months early because the need is so huge—we have 136 wounded warriors on the waiting list. Please stand with us and help these heroes! This is one of the most powerful projects of Soldiers’ Angels, and the current online fundraiser is a very large part of ensuring it can continue to supply severely-wounded troops with voice-controlled laptops and other technology that aids their recovery, reintegration and independence.
“Using a voice-controlled laptop was first time I felt whole since I’d woken up wounded,” says Chuck Ziegenfuss co-founder of Valour-IT and a wounded warrior himself. “It allowed me to do one thing that I had been able to do before I was wounded—use a computer. It allowed me to connect to my soldiers, friends, and family. That one thing began a long road to recovery. It gave me hope… hope that I could learn to do other things like I did before.”
Every single donation—no matter how small--enables Valour-IT to provide that hope to other wounded warriors. Right now 136 of them are on the waiting list for laptops and we are only 15% of the way to our goal. Please do what you can to help—donate $10, email your friends and family, spread the word!
