BFS: We Made It!!!

Great news!  Books For Soldiers made their $70,000 Fund Raising goal and will NOT have to close!

BFS provides an awesome service to our deployed military members, and I hope we can continue to support this vital ministry for years to come!

Thank you to all of you that donated to and promoted this urgent need over the past few months!

2009 fundraising is now in progress… please keep Books For Soldiers in mind as you consider year-end and ongoing charitable giving.


Books For Soldiers: Almost There!

Just $2,800 left to meet the critical donation level required by the BFS Board of Directors!  What’s amazing is that the original deadline was October 31 (they plan to close the operation if the $70,000 is not reached), and you’d have never thought they could get this close by that date!

Fortunately, as we mentioned two weeks ago, the Board extended the deadline to November 30.  Can you give $50?  $100?  Okay, yeah, if you have $2,800 to spare, go for it! This is a vital service to our men and women on active duty overseas, and I know from comments I’ve received and otherwise seen that this means a great deal to them!  Go to their web site and see what they are


Book For Soldiers: Still Need Your Help, Making Progress

Great news!

Since a week ago when I last posted on this topic, Books For Soldiers has been able to raise another $4,000! Thank you for all you’ve done so far, including passing this word along to others!

They still need another $13,500.  The good news is, the organization’s directors, who had given them until October 31 to raise a total of $70,000 ($56,500 raised so far) or face closing, have extended this deadline to November 30!  That’s still only 6 weeks away.

Please consider donating $20, $50, $100 or more.  If you have family on active duty overseas like I do, you know how important the work of this organization can be for our military.  How can we not do what we …


Books For Soldiers Needs You NOW!

Just a little more than two weeks and it’s over!  Not the General Election, but the existence of Books For Soldiers.  These folks have been providing books and videos for our soldiers for several years now, and for lack of $17,500 raised by October 31, they will have to close their doors come December 31.  We talked about this back in May, and a lot of progress has been made, but the work is not done!

We cannot let this happen!  This organization has the process down cold, they have great creds and do a super job.  Thousands of soldiers have been served by BFS.

Won’t you please act now?  Go to this link and make a donation now.  If every visitor to …
