A Challenge

A fellow Project Valour IT has issued a challenge. homefronts6 says he will donate toward the Hurricane Katrina Relief charity when you leave a comment section and you can specify one of two charities to donate toward. I requested the Armed Forces Home in Gulfport that was destroyed.

Here is your challenge : for every comment (1 per person and anonymous comments don't count - be brave and use your name!) logged on this blog for this post between 12:01 am Thursday, September 8 and midnight Thursday September 15 (Hawaii Standard Time), I will donate $1 to either of the following charities (you can specify which charity you want your $1 to go to in your comments if you have a preference) :

Please go to his site and leave a comment. Or better yet, go to Soldier's Angels Operation Katrina to help those soldiers and their families affected by Hurricane Katrina or go to the Armed Forces Retirement Home and help those who had to be evacuated from the Gulfport Armed Forces Home after it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. They are enroute to the Washington DC AFRH.

Thank You for your blog.

I wish you all the luck in the world in your recovery. I know there are many people in South Florida that are donating money and their time to help in the recovery. It is also refreshing to see a different opinion of the events that followed afterwards. I think the press causes more problems than they are worth sometimes.

Good luck and know that many are still praying for those who have lost so much.

Okay - I am amending my post. It wasn't really clear - I thought you were matching HF6's contributions dolar for dollar. Might just be me though - tired while reading!

Sorry for the confusion. I wasn't very clear and amended my post somewhat. This is the first time I have not been able to help out and make a donation and it hurts me.

Hey - Your turn (unfortunately) to donate will come again, so you just sit back and accept our help with grace and dignity. And shut the hell up about it! LOL

Be safe.
