It's Happening!!!

It's all but official! You are among the first to know...

A program to provide voice-based computer access to military personnel with hand and arm injuries at a variety of military medical facilities is being finalized under the auspices and guidance of Patti Bader and Soldiers' Angels. Program details and a website for donations and volunteers will be up by Wednesday, August 10th.

If you are interested in receiving the Soldiers' Angels press release on Wednesday, please email me and I will make sure you get on the list.

Right now we need your help in naming the program. "Software for Soldiers" isn't really accurate, since we intend to provide entire laptop setups. We need a short name that clearly communicates what it's about: giving soldiers with hand and arm injuries access to the communication and independence opportunities of computer use. PLEASE share your ideas in the comments, 'cause I'm drawing an absolute blank!

And to all of you who have already lined up to offer your time, support, and expertise: THANK YOU! I can hardly wait to see what we are going to accomplish together!

UPDATE: As of 8/10/05 we are up and running at Soldiers' Angels
