"In Honor" Bipartisan Blog Fundraising Success

By Cernig

On Tuesday, I mentioned a fundraisng drive begun by Comments From Left Field and Conservative Thinking in honor of Sgt. Omar Mora & Sgt. Yance T. Gray.

Today, Kyle at CFLF posts that the memorial fund rocketed past its first target of $2,000 within 24 hours and so they've decided to move the goalposts up to $10,000.

Nice one, folks!

This is truly a bipartisan effort and it goes to a good cause. All funds raised will go to the Fisher House charity, an organization which builds houses near military medical facilities where loved ones of those who have been injured in the line of duty can stay free of charge while their service member undergoes necessary treatment.

Look at the blogs who have linked to and supported the fund:

Thank you, all who continue to support and contribute to this memorial for two courageous servicemen.
