Support Our Troops

Putting a magnetic ribbon on your car or truck isn't enough. Sure, Wal-Mart and some manufacturers in China made a profit, and you feel good "Supporting Our Troops," but how does it actually help our troops?

It doesn't. And veterans of the Iraq war and past wars really do need your help.
Veterans Administration (VA) budget cuts in recent years have left many of our nation's veterans at VA hospitals without the means to call their families over the holidays. These long distance calls are generally not covered by the VA, and many vets just don't have the financial resources to call all their loved ones.

So Working Assets, Veterans for Peace, CODEPINK, Iraq Veterans Against the War and Gold Star Families for Peace have teamed up on a project to thank our veterans by sending them phone cards loaded with 125 minutes of domestic long-distance calling time. We'll purchase these cards and deliver them to VA Medical Facilities all over the country on December 18th. (If you want to join in delivering the cards to a VA hospital near you, just click on the link you'll see after making your gift.)

$10 will cover the cost of phone cards for three veterans. $20 will buy six phone cards. $33 will buy ten cards. $100 will buy phone cards for 30 veterans to call home over the holidays. 100% of your gift will go directly to buying phone cards -- so please give as generously as you can.

Support the veterans who've served our country by sending them a phone card so they can call their loved ones over the holidays.
Here's the link.

Help our troops. Not Chinese businessmen and the Walton family:
