FORGET THE YELLOW ONE!

Forget Lance's Yellow -- Here's the newest & coolest bracelet in town! It's PURPLE! It comes in 2 sizes (7" and 8"), 100% (not a typo -100%!) of the purchase price goes to agencies & charities supporting wounded troops, and soldiers' families -- and you not only get to select the charity (they have a list by state and a national list), but you get to name the price you pay for the bracelet from $1 to $5 each!! http://www.gi-bracelet.org/

They are trying to raise $100,000 for these charities... SO PLEASE HELP!!! Support Fischer House where wounded soldiers' families stay for free near medical centers... or refurbish homes for disabled troops to make them handicap accessible... or provide immediate personal necessities to wounded soldiers or marines... Lots of charities to choose!
The site explains: "The GI-Bracelet is the color of the Purple Heart, symbolizing the bravery and sacrifice of those who serve. 100% behind our troops and their families.
"The entire purchase price is donated to support our troops and their families!Many military families fall into financial hardship when the breadwinner is injured or killed.
"When you buy most other "support our troops" products, you don't know where the money goes. The entire purchase price of each GI Bracelet is donated to support our troops and their families!
"Please join us to give back to these brave people in their time of need.
"This endeavor is not for the red states or the blue states. It is for the United States of America and the men and women who make the sacrifices for our country." http://www.gi-bracelet.org/
Spread the word and pass this along to everyone you know!!! Let's really get this rolling!

NOTE: For all of you narrow minded individuals who just must comment on the "Forget Lance's Yellow" - Lighten up, will ya? I and my family were among the first to support Lance's Live Strong Foundation and to wear the yellow "Live Strong" bracelet... My son and most of his platoon wear the ones I and my sister gifted to them (because LIVE STRONG is a great message!)! I intend to wear THREE bracelets: Lance's "Live Strong" yellow, the red "My Soldier My Hero" AND the Purple "For Those Who Serve." The rest of you trolls, please get a life!

Yeah! Who gives a rat's ass about cancer victims anyway!? ESPECIALLY that lefty Lance Armstrong...he's obivously a leftie: HE WEARS BIKE SHORTS! Oh, and I totally agree with your stance on ground zero, in fact i think we should remove any and all narrative or dialogue from every single American museum and memorial. "Perfect example" you ask? Well, consider this! Each memorial for the War of Northern Aggression is labeled as a memorial for the "Civil War". Enough is enough, stop these leftists now!

Ahhhhh yes......what a surprise, someone who cannot imagine wearing TWO bracelets at one time....I, poor confused soul that I must be, imagined that your "forget Lance's yellow" was an attention grabbing line and not an expression of a desire to stop funding cancer research! I was just going to post a "thanks for the great link" note, but the first post annoyed me into replying; even though I know it will not make a dent in his/her narrow mind. AT any rate... rant over now... Thanks for the tip to the site for a great idea, I've already ordered!

You did catch the name right? OralAspirator. People are crazy. Oh wait, can't say that I sometimes call myself crazy...hhmmm....Ok Some people do not use the brain the Good Lord gave them sometimes.
Thanks SSM, I want to get some of these AND Lance's also. As I have two arms I think I can get both. See my-step dad has cancer. And have plenty of people in my life who are deployed right now. Yes I think I shall get both.
