MILBLOG Conference & Hidden Heroes
In order to raise funds to blunt the cost of the Conference space, the VFW has been given a grant of sorts by the Hidden Heroes Foundation.http://vfwhiddenheroes.org/
Recently, singer Barbara Fairchild recorded a song titled The Hidden Heroes, which is meant to pay tribute to those left behind, the families of our troops. It's a very emotional song. Todd Clegg is going to put images (photos) to the song and it will then be released. One of Todd Cleggs pieces can be viewed here (sound): http://www.tonydiana.com/picture.php
HHF is requesting patriotic photos from families of our troops so they can use them for this project, as well as others. The song will be available for download soon for a minimum $1 donation. Any single donation over $1 will be donated to the Milblog Conference, up to a maximum of $5,000. I would like to ask you to push this on your sites so that we can do some fund raising for the conference as well as promote a good product. Ask your readers to contribute photos and make a donation.
The VFW has posted a link on the conference site and you can view it and listen to the song there.
A Pay Pal account has been set up to allow supporters to make a contribution to the MilBlog Conference. Proceeds will pay for expenses for holding the conference (venue/hosting). All contributions will be requitted with gifts as they are made available (downloads etc.).
