Valour-IT 2010 – Time is short

November 6th, 2010 · No Comments

Not like “minja-short” but short, nonetheless. The fundraiser lasts until Thursday, November 11 (Veteran’s Day) and while Team Marine has pulled ahead, this is no time for complacency. Team Army is following close behind… Marines: $18,700 Army: $18,015 Navy: $5,370 Air Force: $3,845 TEAM MARINE still needs your help to succeed. Besides, someone has to […]

Milblogs Go Silent

Valour-IT fundraiser may cause baldness

November 9th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Just a few more days remain of this year’s Valour-IT online fundraiser and overall we’re not doing well, folks. I’m pleased to see that the Marines are pretty much crushing the competition but still…even the Marines will need to stay focused in order to reach the per-team goal of $35,000 raised. The way things are […]

Work is keeping me busy as hell…I guess that’s a good thing these days, eh? Still, I’m sorry to say that I’m getting a late start to this year’s annual Valour-IT fundraiser/auction.

Valour-IT – think of the kittens

November 25th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Just a few days left to go and we’re pretty far away from this year’s fundraising goals. I mean, really far. Hell, three of the teams haven’t even raised 10 grand and if we’ve learned anything from the previous years, it’s that it can be done. It’s up to each of us. Just five dollars […]

Valour-IT, the ass kickery continues. Wow. The Marine team is falling further behind, which could very well be my fault. I mean, I am the idiot who proposed redistributing the donation totals. I just didn’t think it would end up like this: At least the Coasties have moved up. Anyway, as a whole, we’ve raised […]
