2006 Military Blogger Conference
Andi's World has a post about how you can help to support the Military Blogger Conference (April 22) and take part in a very interesting project:
We have a great venue for our conference, the AED Conference Center. To pay for that venue, the National Hidden Heroes Foundation has agreed to donate up to $5,000 worth of proceeds from an innovative project they are currently working on. Recently, singer Barbara Fairchild recorded a very touching song dedicated to the Hidden Heroes, those who are left behind, the families of deployed troops. Many of us are aware of the sacrifices made by the families of our troops. These families serve their country too, quietly and with incredible dignity.
Barbara's song, The Hidden Heroes, will be paired with a flash video presentation to be created by Todd Clegg, an example of his work can be viewed here (sound file). When the flash presentation is ready, it will be offered for download for a minimum contribution of $1. Contributions over $1 will be donated to the Milblog Conference. The first $5,000 will help pay for the Milblog Conference. You can go ahead and make your contribution today, and when the download is available, you will be notified by email.
The best thing is that you can be a part of this flash presentation, or others. Have some digital photos you would like to contribute to these creative projects which pay tribute to our troops and their families? If so, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word "flash" in the subject line.
You can listen to The Hidden Heroes here (click on the black box in the post). Please consider giving a few dollars to help with the Milblog Conference and tributes to our troops, and their families.
