Please see this post by Kyle E. Moore @ the other mothership. As they say, read the whole damn thing. To summarize (for those who, for whatever reason, are allergic to clicking links):
Comments From Left Field has, along with other concerned parties, initiated a fund drive, In Honor of Sgt. Omar Mora & Sgt. Yance T. Gray, two US servicemen in Iraq who were recently killed in a tragic non-combat related incident not long after after penning a NY Times op-ed critical of the war.
After exploring several options, CFLF has decided to donate 100% of the funds to the Fisher House charity, an organization we have worked with in the past. Fisher House has a simple goal; to build houses near military medical facilities. Here loved ones of those who have been injured in the line of duty can stay free of charge while their service member undergoes necessary treatment.
CFLF urges you to give what you can to this noble cause for only in this way can Omar and Tell continue to make the lives of their fellow soldiers better even after their passing.
NOTE TO BLOGGERS: CFLF invites you to join with us in promoting this fund raising drive. We have set our initial goal at $2,000 but we hope that with your help we can exceed this number dramatically. All you need to do is put up a post of your own tracking back to our original post and linking to our fund raising page on ActiveGiving. CFLF will regularly update the original post with information on the progress of our drive that you can add to your site. If you have any questions please contact Michael Tedesco at michael(at)commentsfromleftfield(dot)com.
