They will have you believe that supporting the troops entails making sure the President has enough money to continue the (permanent?) occupation of a country that did not attack us. Working Assets has a better idea:
It's really a sad state of affairs when the Bush administration won't even grant our nation's hospitalized veterans a few dollars in long-distance fees so they can call their loved ones back home over the holidays. So again this year, CREDO Action from Working Assets and Veterans For Peace are teaming up to bring the gift of long-distance calling cards to veterans at VA hospitals all over the country.
Last year, thanks to overwhelming generosity from folks just like you, we were able to raise over $90,000. This was enough to ship more than 24,000 cards loaded with 3,180,000 minutes to VA hospitals all over the United States. This year, we hope to repeat the feat. Your tax-deductible $10.50 donation will provide 120-minute phone cards to three veterans, and a $35 donation will get two-hour cards to ten veterans.
