This Wednesday is Veterans Day, and I hope you'll join me, Gold Star Mother Ruth Stonesifer, and Powerline blogger John Hinderaker for a conference call tonight at 8 pm Eastern/ 5 pm Pacific as we launch The Eleven Eleven Campaign.
The objective of the campaign is simple: to get 11 million Americans to donate $11 to support America's Veterans. We've made giving back to our Vets easy through a national Text to Give Campaign (simply text "VETS" to 85944 to contribute).
Please RSVP to the conference call here:
Dial-in Number: 1-213-289-0500

The Eleven Eleven Campaign is a project of Beyond Tribute -- a great organization that is making a real difference in the lives of veterans. Contributions are distributed to Beyond Tribute's 11 coalition partners, who specialize in providing direct services and/or advocacy for Veterans of all eras and conflicts.
We're asking bloggers from around the web and across the political spectrum to join us in making this Veteran's Day a day when the blogosphere shows what it can do when it comes together to support our Vets.
So please join the call, and add an Eleven Eleven Campaign Widget to your blog from now through Veteran's Day. You can grab the widget here:
The Eleven Eleven Campaign begins on Veterans Day, 2009 - but it continues every day until our goal is reached of bringing 11 million Americans together to change the way America honors its Veterans.
Please join me and help spread the word about this new campaign to support America's Vets.
