This has gotta improve. For the sake of our vets, we need more contributions.
If you support veterans' charities, if you support veterans, if you support our military ... if you support helping your fellow person, period ... then you need to contribute to the Blue Star Drive. 10% of total proceeds from DCP's books and our Zazzle store will go toward a veterans' charity (you can vote for which charity in an earlier post on this very blog!). 100% of proceeds from DCP's Blue Star line of merchandise (t-shirts or pendants) will go to the charity.
Get the word out to your friends. They need to know that this is going on. Tweet it, Like this page, post statuses on Facebook, send out e-mails, talk to your friends and neighbors, just get the word out there that we're trying to help our vets. I'm trying to do my part by publicizing this drive via my blogs here and at Goodreads, as well as with my Goodreads giveaway of Dinétah Dragon. If you read this, pass it along to three of your friends.
If you're entered in the giveaway, good luck. While you're waiting for April 30th to come around, and especially if you know someone with a family member overseas in harm's way, go to the Zazzle store and look for Easter gifts of Blue Star merchandise, or other DCP products. If you're looking for gifts for friends, look for DCP's books and get your direct or Internet retailer orders in. Get the word out, get the money coming in, and we'll make the lives of our vets that much better this year!
