Pimp Your Stuff: February Edition

It's that time again. The list isn't quite as extensive as last month's list, but there's still some links to browse. If you've got stuff to pimp, send us an email. Provided it's appropriate, we'll feature your stuff in next month's edition.

Nice:

Andi, I'm MIke Cox, I live in Kirkwood, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. My employees and I have decided to raise money for The USO and The Fisher House which will serve soldiers and veterans from six states. Our site is 850miles.com.

Check it out.

Our friend, Rosemary O'Brien is working on another story and would like your help.

I am looking for Amazing Dad stories. It could be something like how a dad "attended" graduation using web cams during a deployment, a birth over the phone type of story, even how a dad helped a child with a school/life problem long-distance while deployed. Any other stories are encouraged

If you have a story you want to share, email Ro by clicking here. She needs responses by March 11.

Blogger Chuck Simmins has some news:

Here is my first e-book. It is a compilation of posts with comments about women in the War on Terror. PDF format. If you like it, pass it on.

Career stuff:

Andi,

As you can see, I'm writing from Allied Schools. So, part of the reason for this email is to let you know that we provide career training at no charge to military spouses. Part of my job is to help get the word out. Here's our url: http://www.education4military.com/advantage-tuition-military-spouse.asp

Do something good...

A very special Vietnam Veteran who lives not far from us is in need of some serious cheer & encouragement. So yes, I'm asking all of you to send cards to me, for him. Let's really surround him with love and prayers, OK? Here's some info I got from my friend who is leading this project:

He was Army...101st Airborne, Ranger, was at "Hamburger Hill" in VietNam. Got exposed to agent orange. This is what they think caused his kidneys to go bad. Two years ago, went into a coma and when he finally cameout of it he was [permanently] paralyzed from the waist down. Now he is on dialysis either two or three days a week.

Then, I learned yesterday that this dear man had a stroke Friday night and is currently in the hospital!!! It appears to be a mild stroke, but they are not sure yet what long-term damage there may be. We are waiting for more information.

Please send a note or two to perk up this Hero's day... it would just mean so much to him and his wife!!! Cards may be sent to me at:

Mama Kat Orr"FOR VETERAN N.C."Post Office Box 1660Loganville GA 30052

I'll forward them on to him. This is a project I'd like to see on-going for a while, not necessarily a one-time shot. You can send individual cards, or if you'd like to have your kids color pictures or get a whole bunch together, that's cool also. But just one card from each person is fine, too. Know that ANYTHING you send for him will be GREATLY appreciated. Lord knows they need plenty of TLC right now....

Thank you in advance, and God bless you
