Beyond Tribute

General Wes Clark and Jill Biden are promoting an excellent cause this week in the runup to Memorial Day. It's called "Beyond Tribute," and it encourages businesses to sign on and donate a portion of their proceeds from Memorial Day sales to veterans' care. I think it's an excellent idea. The link to the page is here:

promotion of the cause here

Unfortunately, there is no LIST of businesses that have signed on... you have to search for businesses or by zip code. Not the most user-friendly format. Regardless, you can also give a direct donation from the page.

Hopefully this sentiment catches on and more people find that there is more to Memorial Day than an excuse to barbecue.
