We at YouServed try our damndest to raise money for SA. I know you guys all know this, and that was evident by the over $600 we raised in less than an hour the night of the dinner at the milblog conf.
Every week we auction off great things on the stores.ebay.com/userved ebay auction site. This week we have Eric Blehm's awesome book, The Only Thing Worth Dying For and a signed copy of Angry Clouds by the band Bridge of Sighs. I don't understand if so many people were willing to drop $5, $10, $20 on raffle tickets for a chance to win some prizes, why are they now motivated to make a bid (even a ridiculously small one) on some great items where all the proceeds go to SA? I mean, even if you get outbid as least your bids help drive up the price and get more for SA. What is the worst that could happen, you spend a few bucks on a book, t-shirt, CD, etc. that you may find you like. And if you don't then you can give it as a gift to someone or better yet, put it in a box to a trooper overseas who would probably really appreciate it.
Yes an iPad is awesome, but that is a rarity and we have auctioned off so many other things for next to nothing. That is great for the winner,,,,but not great for SA.
Do Marcus and I need to come around to each of your houses every week and harrass you to bid like we harrassed you the night of the dinner?
Like I said that night "If you don't love SA, then you don't love America" or my other good one "Even the chick from IVAW bought tickets, why aren't you?"
