OT: I know there are some big hearts here...

wondering if you are willing to share.

2 links, one you will have to copy and paste, they are the same organization. People outside of the US do participate in this as well- commendable.

If you can only mail one card out, this is one to do...

I know there are many more ppl at PEERtrainer than are in my inbox, and all over the US at that... here goes. Foorwarding this on-
"I have a yahoo 360 profile with a link to SA to encourage people to sign up. Well one girl contacted me and has since adopted a soldier. She asked me to forward a request to as many people as possible. The severity of this case is nothing short of heartbreaking and I hope that EVERYONE here can send a card and add this soldier to their prayers!!!

Thank You!!!

There is a young soldier (a 23 year old Tennessee National Guardsman) named Sgt. Kevin Downs. He was blown out of his tank in Baghdad a year ago and left with no feet, mangled arms, and burns over 60% of his body. He is a Tennessee boy. Everyone else in the tank was killed. His condition is not good. A surgery to improve the use of fingers on one hand inadvertently caused previous skin grafts to break down, and the grafts on his legs are cracking as well and may require beginning over at square one. Kevin is tired and low in spirits. He needs our prayers and support through cards. Would you please send him a note or card to let him know you are thinking about him? Remember him in your prayers as well. Now I am going to ask a special favor from me. Would you please send this to as many people that you can in your e-mail addresses? Hit FORWARD and let my e-mail introduce Kevin to your e-mail buddies. I
would love to see him get cards from everywhere and hopefully he will know that people all over the country appreciate him leaving the safety of his home and country and fighting for our freedoms. I personally have never met Kevin or his family but when my minister let us know that Kevin needed a lift, I couldn't keep quiet. I love America and know that it could very well be one of my family members. Thank you for all that you will do. His address is:

Sgt. Kevin Downs
Brooke Army Medical Center
3851 Roger Brooke Drive
Fort Sam Houston, TX 78234

Thanks again! Every little card and prayer will help!"
