Paid LJ time going to fund phone cards for wounded troops at the Walter Reed Medical Center in DC.

Title
Paid LJ time going to fund phone cards for wounded troops at the Walter Reed Medical Center in DC.

Short, concise description of the idea
Instead of the $ for paid time going to LiveJournal, it would go to purchase phone cards for wounded soldiers at the Walter Reed Medical Center in DC, until 12/31/04.

Full description of the idea
I realize that this is not a customary suggestion, but funding has been cut for these soldiers and their #1 request has been phone cards, which the government has not been able to provide. I also know that LJ is not a charity, but generosity starts at the grass roots level and it would be a wonderful gesture. I can only get the word out to so many people, but with an entity such as LJ, so much more could be done.

An ordered list of benefits
  • * Getting something a user likes (paid time, more icons) while doing something good for others at the same time.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • * Many users may object to the Americentrism of this idea, but they always have the choice to opt out.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • * An LJ announcement should be sufficient-- things like this can spread like wildfire and reach the furthest corners of LJ in a matter of days.
  • Thank you for your consideration, no matter which way you choose.
