Support Pin-Ups for Vets!

Our friend Bob Belvedere at The Camp of the Saints points out that the lovely Gina Elise, proprietor of Pin-ups for Vets, is trying to win a grant from Pepsi to:

travel to at least one VA or Military Hospital in every state to deliver donated appreciation gifts and make personal bedside visits to thousands of ill and injured Veterans.These visits provide relief from pain, boredom and loneliness that so many of our Nation’s heroes endure while hospitalized. The visit from Gina Elise, in 1940s pin-up attire, bearing donated appreciation gifts (such as nostalgic calendars, posters and “Kiss A Vet” t-shirts), ALWAYS brings a big smile to our nation’s heroes dealing with severe burns, PTSD, amputations, traumatic brain and spinal injuries, chronic pain and illness, addictions and depression. These visits inspire others around the country to volunteer at their local Veterans Hospitals. Most importantly, these visits make a huge impact in the lives of hospitalized Veterans, who come to realize that people appreciate their military service and have not forgotten about them.

What a worth cause!  And considering that all you have to do is sign in and push a button once a day, whaddya waiting for???!!!

To help motivate your lazy ass, here is Gina in one of her lovely and tasteful pin-ups:

And for insurance:

Also, Gregory Atkins has made the movie.

Bloggers, spread this around!  This ain’t exactly an onerous assignment.

  1. Good morning John,
    Thanks for the link to the vid. Watch and enjoy, readers, and then follow that Pepsi link and vote!

  2. Thanks, Neo.
    I would like see this gal win the 50 large – she brings sunshine to a lot of cloudy lives.

  4. Well, Smashmouthers, Gina missed out on the Pepsi prize, but a little bit of good fortune has come her way courtesy of Oprah Winfrey.

  5. That is just AWESOME!!! Thanks for passing it along.

  6. It’s great news all right. Get the feeling Bob Belvedere is a little dubious over the source of the patronage but hell, even the Medici supported a worthy artist or two.
