In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
ConvergeUS Launches Operation Appreciation 2012: A Fundraising Contest for Families of Our Nation's Troops

WASHINGTON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ConvergeUS, the nonprofit arm of TechNet, announced the launch of Operation Appreciation 2012, a fundraising campaign to demonstrate public appreciation for the families of our nation's troops and facilitate online donations for leading military family support organizations. 

In keeping with the holiday season, ConvergeUS has teamed up with actor Geoff Stults, whose TV credits include The Finder, Ben and Kate, and 7th Heaven, and whose movie credits include the Break-Up and Wedding Crashers to offer this great opportunity to help military families. The public can vote for one of three proposed military family events that Geoff will attend with the kids, wives, and husbands of our brave men and women in the military.

"The holiday season can be an especially trying time for our service men, women, and families. Military service and deployment create empty seats at holiday tables, religious services, and celebrations. I am honored and humbled to 'host' Operation Appreciation 2012 on behalf of a grateful nation," said Geoff Stults.

"We are thrilled to be a part of such a momentous campaign," said Patrick Gusman, Executive Director of ConvergeUS. "Every day, our troops and their families make incredible sacrifices for our country, and this is an opportunity for us to show our gratitude."

Craig Newmark, Founder of and, and Rey Ramsey, President and CEO of TechNet, are among the tech luminaries supporting Operation Appreciation 2012.

From Nov. 21 to Dec. 31, you can join the cause by voting for your favorite event, contributing to the cause, and spreading the word. Donations directly support the National Military Family Association, Military Child Education Coalition, and Operation Purple® Program, as well as the millions of families who benefit.

The winning event, which will be announced live on the website on 1/4/2013, will be (1) a welcome party for a relocated child at their new school, (2) a basketball tournament for military children, or a (3) welcome home party at an NBA game.  The votes will be calculated by tabulating one vote for each 'social share' and 10 votes for each dollar donated. 

"I am excited to be personally involved with the winning contest," indicated Geoff Stults confirming his commitment to share in the fun at the winning event.

In addition to voting for your favorite event, a pledge to "thank military families during the holiday season" has been launched at The pledge encourages the public to demonstrate their gratitude offline through real world gestures, and share their stories online for military families to see.
