Should you support the troops?
Never let it be said liberals don't support the troops.
During the first Gulf War, I began collecting books to send to my college friends serving in Saudi Arabia. I must have sent hundreds of books. When US troops got deployed to Iraq, I started doing it again but I knew the job was too big for one person to do it, so I set up Books For Soldiers, a 501 (c)(3) charity to send free books, dvds and video games to deployed US soldiers.
But I wasn't that smart since I only thought the war would last 6 weeks tops in Iraq. What was I thinking? Now, FOUR years later, we are still shipping books.
But today I need your help. There is a contest sponsored by VAJoe.com, they will contribute $2,000 to charitable military organizations next month in its Charity for Charities event. You can vote on your favorite charitable military organizations. The top four charitable organizations and a randomly selected organization will share $2,000 in donations from VAJoe. Books for Soldiers has been included in the event.
The Alexa Traffic Rank for BooksForSoldiers.com is 242,975 and you would not believe our bandwidth bills!
So today, I am asking (begging actually) for your vote for Books For Soldiers. It won't take you 30 seconds to help a liberal out!

P.S. Thank-you Michael Moore.
And yes, we have sent truck loads of GLBTQ books and DVDs to the troops. I don't discriminate. You would be amazed how many copies of Queer As Folk we have sent to the Middle East.
