    I Raised Over $10,000 For War Vetrans In Qld

    I was fundraising in 2000 for war veterans ... and that is not a lot of money to raise compared to in the 80's many girls had big sponsorship of large companies to raise money ... back then they could raise $60,000- $120,000... easily... back in the 80's companies could write off...

    Not long ago, I read in a newspaper

    that a veteran was having to sell his medals that he earned in WW2 to pay his rent/bills.. Makes me so angry!

    It just makes me sick thinking about how

    Veterans are homeless. They go out and risk their lives fighting for our freedom, In my opinion the Veterans shouldn't have to pay for a place of living, I feel so bad thinking about Veterans that come home from battle and have no place to live, it's just wrong.

    Homeless Veterans Are a National Tragedy

    The men and women in/out of our military deserve

    so much more than what they are getting. I don't believe the amount of veterans that are out on the streets having to rely on strangers for enough money to make it through the day. It's plain wrong and it shouldn't happen. Nobody has done more for this country then our service...
