Trikes for Troops

Rick White - a software engineer out in Colorado, is riding a tricycle Wednesday to raise money for Soldiers' AngelsValour IT program. He has raised almost $11,000 to date, and has a little comments section on his website.

On June 25th Rick is teaming up with SA to take part in Colorado's Bike to Work Day to raise money for the Valour-IT programme. You may remember I wrote about this programme during the annual bloggers' fundraising effort to raise money to buy the voice activated laptops which make a huge difference to our wounded heroes. To remind yourself, (lol) read that post here.

Rick has a website set up for this latest endeavour:

You can find his site Trikes for Troops here. Last year he raised $3,500, which he used to send care packages to the troops. Already this year he has raised almost $11,000., which will buy more than a few laptops.

Check out Rick's website, and even if you can't make a donation, feel free to leave a message of support.
