Facebook and Twitter

In our efforts to keep connected and to increase our support efforts beyond what the main Soldiers’ Angels Forum can do,  Soldiers’ Angels Oregon has added Patti & Soldiers’ Angels approved,  Facebook page, Facebook group and Twitter Page.  I encourage you all to join…  These social networking sites  are great ways to ‘meet’ other angels, discuss projects and events you may be working on, brainstorm ideas or simply  see what’s coming up next in the state without having to dig for information or wait for an email.  By being a part of these Oregon State sites you not only can connect on a local level, but you will be directly connected (with a click) on the national level to the directors and official group. It’s a fast way to receive information! I love it!  These are great tools for strengthening a team and spreading the word of support!

Here are the links  Just click!  JOIN THEM ALL & SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG 🙂

Roseburg VA Appreciation Day

Soldiers’ Angels in Oregon participated in a wonderful Veteran appreciation day at the Roseburg VA.  Sandy Marcell and Donna Madison joined several other Veteran organizations, families and Veterans for a nice lunch and carnival, complete with Wii bowling!  Lap blankets, quilts and hats were given to the Veterans and the best  gift of all of course,  was time spent with an incredible group of people who have served and sacrificed for the rest of us.   Thank you Veterans!! We Appreciate you!!

Day of the Deployed October 26

Soldiers’ Angels 4th Annual Day of the Deployed is upon us.

Americans are encouraged to reaffirm their patriotism and allegiance to our flag and country, and to honor our brave men and women in uniform who are selflessly putting their lives on the line to protect and preserve our way of life. How? Think big, think small, but just…think. Ideas are under my signature line.

Then put those thinking muscles in motion and do something that day in their honor. Join us in celebrating our deployed heroes and their families on October 26, 2009.

Do you want to help honor our deployed heroes and their families on Oct 26– DAY OF THE DEPLOYED? Email ShelleMichaels@msn.com or ShelleMichaels@soldiersangels.org to get a Day of the Deployed Kit. Time is ticking— learn how to help. SUBJECT LINE: DoD Kit

America’s Giving Challenge

Our cause just entered in America’s Giving Challenge, which gives us a chance to win $50,000!

Please donate today: http://www.facebook.com/l/093a4;www.causes.com/donations/select_donation_method?m=eed19519&cause_id=20611

To win, between now and November 7th we have to get the most donations to our cause (every person can donate once per day and have it count as a unique donation). We can also win daily awards of $1,000 and $500 if we can get the most people to donate in any 24-hour period. The great thing about this Challenge is that it doesn’t matter how much you give, but instead how much you do to encourage friends and family to get involved in our cause. We all need to come together and start promoting the cause if we want to win.

Each of us has tons of friends on Facebook who we can ask to donate to our cause. But let’s think big too—can you put our cause in your email signature, can you throw a party and get people to donate through the cause when they enter, can you organize other people to go out and fundraise from all of their friends? As you reach out to your friends be sure to tell them why this cause matters to you. The possibilities are endless so let’s talk about what we can do to win on the Wall of the cause or by replying to this bulletin.

I think we can do it! But it’s going to take all of us. Check out the Giving Challenge (http://www.facebook.com/l/093a4;www.causes.com?m=eed19519), then visit our cause to see how we’re doing so far and get involved.

Donate right now by going to http://www.facebook.com/l/093a4;www.causes.com/donations/select_donation_method?m=eed19519&cause_id=20611

Let’s win $50,000 for our cause!
