Yellow Ribbon Fund: help service members and families

Yellow Ribbon Fund: help service members and families

Shares

Hey, I just found out about these guys, they do good work:

The Yellow Ribbon Fund assists injured service members and their families while they recuperate at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center by offering free rental cars, taxi rides, hotel and apartment rooms, job mentoring and internship opportunities and tickets to sporting and cultural events.

I learned about Yellow Ribbon from Stephen Colbert via his "wrist strong" campaign.

Craig,
I saw this post about the yellow ribbon fund and wanted to tell you about a movement I am attempting to start. I am a sociologist at Clark University in Worcester MA and over the past year have been speaking to my students about the level of apathy in America and the need for individuals to get "outraged." There seems to be a lot of individual frustration vented over family meals over the cost of healthcare, the never ending war, etc. but little done in a collective way. On top of this, the politicians know that if they can get us fighting across party lines they can reduce the collective to warring factions. I believe America is at a critical juncture in its history–people are working harder than ever and making less; people are more insecure; and the desire for "better" is on everyone's minds. What if we all–regardless of party affiliation–banded together in a more unified way? Because we don't really protest anymore but we still wear clothes, I created a shirt. I hope you will take a moment to check it out and to possibly post it to your blog–it tells the whole story.

I'm sure you get this question a lot… and I'm very sorry for this misplaced "post"—but is there a way I can drop you a short line with a question? I was hoping you could impart some brief advice.
Either way, you may kindly remove this comment.
Kind Regards,
A.K
