Mission: VALOR


Figure a few of your readers might like a place that opens champagne the right way — with a sword. :)
If I haven’t told you, I’m helping stand up a new charity focused on Veteran’s employment.  There is a real crisis with Veteran unemployment, and Mission: VALOR (http://missionvalor.org) is focused on practical efforts to bridge the gaps and provide solid careers, not just a job.  We incorporated last Monday, and have already been doing things to try to help even before incorporation.  Our flagship program will focus on the culinary/hospitality fields, and the testbed will be in the culinary/hospitality capital of the U.S., New York City.

The wonderful people at The Baroness are hosting a launch party on 27 March from 7-9, both to help introduce us to New York and to help raise funds for our 501(c)(3) filing.  Donations are not (yet) tax deductible, but we hope to file ASAP and will be requesting (and paying for) expedited determination.  Please know you are invited to this and any of our events, and I hope you might share the news as well.  Figure a few of your readers might like a place that opens champagne the right way — with a sword.  :)

Any questions, drop me a line or call me at 765-409-5646.

Blake is doing God's work, so if you're in the area, what the hell.  I might even make the trip myself.  Or read  one of his books
