    Default The Steel Soldiers 2nd Annual Wounded Warriors Fund Drive

    Hi all!

    Once again, we are going to have a fund raising effort on SS to support our wounded veterans. Last year's campaign raised almost $5000! I think we can do even better than that so I set this year's goal at $7500. I just dropped $200 in the pot to kick things off.

    Here's the link to the webpage to donate:

    As a side note, I still owe a few folks a OIF pin-up book from last year's fund drive. I apologize that I never got them mailed out! If you were one of the initial $200+ donors last year, and never received your book, then please PM me with your current address and I will get one shipped to you!

    Thank you, Chris, for taking point on this mission.

    May the generous hearts of the SS Membership pour out abundantly for those who have sacrificed for us all. May these donations bless both the wounded and the giver. And may the funds collected be carefully directed and dispensed to the maximum benefit of these valiant warriors.
    AMEN.

    I have selected the memo at the top of the page ("Donate Here") for a donation to wounded warriors and the link for it sends me to the "no more political statements page".

    I'm surprised no one has already mentioned this, but in any case, please correct the link so people who wish to donate to it go to the correct area and make a speedy donation.

    Thanks for all you do. The Wounded Warriors campaign should be proud of the contribution made by all Steel Soldiers.

    I am recalling my post about trying to work something out with paypal and Wounded Warriors, where a donation can be made through paypal.

    I have contacted Wounded Warriors through the email address recommended to ask the same question and got a robot response. I've read their help page that was recommended and it appears it might be very difficult to work something out without a middle man intervening.

    Donations should be made to the site provided in the original post if you wish to donate.

    It'll run through the end of the year unless folks need a little more time to donate to reach our goal. Thanks to all who have donated so far.
