UCLA Grad Gina Elise Makes Good With PinupsForVets.com Project

A little over two years ago, I told you about Gina Elise and her PinupsForVets.com project.  Since then, Gina has been touring the country to promote her cause, raising money for and the spirits of our wounded veterans.  From her March, 2009 newsletter:

I just wanted to let you know that I made my very first hospital visit of 2009 (March 2nd)  to the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, CA.  I hosted a dinner for the Wounded Warriors and gave out your donated calendars, tee shirts, and posters with special messages of appreciation.  Everyone had a blast and the Wounded Warriors LOVED their gifts!!!  The project got lots of great feedback and they were just so appreciative.  The donated tee-shirts were gone within seconds!!! A big thank you goes out to these brave heroes for their service to our country!

I will be traveling to Texas in a few weeks and will be visiting with Wounded Warriors at a hospital there.  For all of you interested in donating calendars, posters and tee shirts for this visit, please go to www.pinupsforvets.com and click on ORDER NOW.  Then chose option #2- Calendar, Tee Shirt or poster for Hospitalized Veteran.  This will be my first time visiting this hospital in Texas and I would like to bring each and every one of these brave heroes a gift of appreciation.

Won't you lend Gina your support by purchasing a calendar or T-shirt for our boys and girls overseas?

About Madam X:
In the year 0000, Madam X journeyed into the Eternal Sphere, exploring, observing, and absorbing the Eternal Culture. She returned to the dimensions of Time in the year 1980, thus proving the unity of all opposites, and the spherosity of All Time. She is the founder of the Human Being Society, whose message is "live the oneness."

About Future Studio Gallery:
