Hands-Free Laptops For Wounded Soldiers

Have you ever tried to write an email or browse the Web without full use of your hands? Now imagine you are hundreds or thousands of miles from home, largely isolated from friends and family, recovering in the confines of a hospital room. Just when you need the support of contact more than ever, achieving the once-simple tasks of e-mail or instant messaging proves proves difficult or even nearly impossible.

This is the frustrating and isolating challenge faced by soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines recovering from wounds to their arms and hands.

Enter Soldiers' Angels and Project Valour-IT, providing specially configured laptops to allow them the ability to e-mail and chat and re-opening lines of communication with family and friends when they need them most. We hope you will consider donating to this worthy cause that is important to so many by clicking the Donate button below.

It was the first time I felt whole since I’d woken up wounded in Landstuhl.
