I have not solicited anyone for prizes, nor even really thought about a charity, that was until I heard that last fall one of the Honor Flights (in Kansas) was canceled do to lack of funding. I still have not decided yet to do the blogathon, but I do want to bring this charity to your attention.
What is the Honor Flight? It is a program that flies our WWII vets to the DC Memorial. It shows our vets how much we appreciate them. Currently the program has 1,200 vets (KS) on the waiting list, and estimates say that here in Kansas 17 WWII vets die daily! 1,000 in the US.
The videos always make me tear up.
It might be your chance to be a hero to our greatest heroes.
