Blue Tiger Democrats Returning to the Party Roots







Blue Tiger Democrats Emphasize Civic Engagement
Not Corporate Buy Outs:


Let's face it. When it comes to the influence of big money on political
campaigns the mainline Democratic party leaders are only about 1/2 step behind
the elephant droppings. Blue tiger democrats are working to get the party back in
the hands of the people where it belongs.

Veteran's Assitance Program

Project Goals

Veterans who have served America loyally are being shortchanged and they need our help. These young men and women are deserving of the nation's very best, but budget strain has left VA Hospitals without everything they need. The Blue Tiger Democrats and our partners across the state have decided to do something about it.

Upon returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan, America's brave soldiers in hospitals across the county are now are lacking such basic items as:

* Razors and Shaving Cream
* Magazines and Books
* CDs and DVDs
* Coffee and Snacks
* Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
* Board Games
* Playing Cards
* Deodorant


Blue Tiger's Veterans Assistance Events focus on collecting goods such as those listed above and delivering them to those who need them most, the brave men and women who have served our country.

Senior Citizen Technology Training Program

Project Goals

Digital technology has become an increasingly essential tool for daily living. Computer access and competence are now critical requirements for staying in touch with friends and family, purchasing consumer goods and services, accessing health care and insurance resources and contacting government officials.

Unfortunately, many people remain without basic computer skills or access and must endure inconvenience, social isolation, higher costs and reduced information resources as a result. Senior citizens, who use computers at half the rate of the general population, suffer perhaps the greatest relative disadvantage from this "digital divide," since many of the most serious challenges of aging (limited mobility, isolation, reduced income, and the need for health care information and assistance) are well suited to technology-based solutions, yet seniors are often excluded from these opportunities due to lack of access to technology and training.

Recognizing this significant problem, Blue Tiger has spearheaded an effort to train senior citizens in the field of computer technology.
