Art for Soldiers

Are you a lover of the visual arts? Do you know someone who is? Holly Aho has something for you!

Holly Aho is a professional visual artist whose paintings normally sell for $150 to $2000. She is offering steep discounts on original, specifically-commissioned paintings in exchange for donations to Soldiers' Angels General Fund, Project Valour-IT, and SA's Operation Hurricane Katrina Soldiers Relief Fund. The paintings will be part of a gallery showing to raise more money for these Soldiers' Angels funds, then shipped to their new owners.

Visit her site and a gallery website for samples of her work.

Holly is a Soldiers' Angel (volunteer), and has done great work for Valour-IT (among many other activities as an Angel), while facing some serious challenges of her own. So, please go check her out and help get out the word on this artistic way to Support Our Troops.

Fundraising Totals

We finally got the check totals, and it's VERY good news.

In the first three weeks of Project Valour-IT, Soldier's Angels received over $3200 in donations for the project via check. This brings our fundraising totals to roughly $15,000 within only 22 days of operation. That's particularly exciting when you consider that fundraising efforts have been significantly curtailed by the hurricane in the last week.

And remember, we will be gearing back up on fundraising in the near future.
