Valdosta - A simple check on your state tax returns could help the men and woman protecting our nation.

Last year the Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation had no money, so the General Assembly took action.

They added a check-off on the state tax return form to make it easy for Georgians to donate to the foundation.

In 2006 the tax check-off helped raise $100,000 and legislators say every dollar helps.  "Interestingly enough, I think 98 percent of the funds that came through the tax check-off was one dollar, and it goes straight to the National Guard Family Foundation," says State Senator Tim Golden.

The statewide campaign also raised 1 million dollars in private funds for the foundation.
