    Extended one month due to our technical difficulties the past 2 weeks.
    Many of you are familiar with this.

    Survivalmonkey.com has chosen to start a campaign to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project

    "The greatest casualty is being forgotten"
    Can we reach a donation level of $5,000 by July 4th? SM has committed to divert all normal site supporter donations towards this goal during this campaign. If this gets traction, we may attempt to commit to a monthly sponsorship of WWP.

    $1,070 Raised

    You can Donate Here or contact me for a snail mail address.

    I'll update our progress as donations come in - maybe even with some cute little progress graphic.

    100% of the funds donated will be transferred to the WWP on behalf of the members of survivalmonkey.

    I follow the credo of 'give TIL it hurts, then give a little more - It will come back to you.'





    That was quick!

    $216 $266 $366 $391 $491 $535 $660 raised.

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    edit: almost $500 in 1.5 hours... Maybe $5K was too low a target.

    All right, as a double-dipper, I have to throw down the gauntlet. Don't donate if you think it an unworthy cause, but if you think it is worthy, donate something. Five bucks. Who will pony up for a gallon and a half of gas?

    Thanks to you both.

    No matter one's political views, this IS a worthy cause. Supporting wounded warriors and their families.
    "Its not about the War, its about the Warrior"

    $850 now.

    Whew. I anticipated more action on this.

    Tell you what. I will auction off my opinion on any topic. Highest bidder donates to Wounded Warrior, Melbo verifies, then he/she gets to ask my opinion on ANYTHING. Do I hear $1?
