One of the things on our agenda is to increase the number of soldiers on our mailing list. We have a lot of stuff to send, a lot of stuff coming in. We have the means to take care of more.
Can you give me a hand?
I'll be over here, collecting beanies, running to the post office, meeting sponsors and attorneys, writing thank you notes and responding to e-mails. I'll be right here, if you need anything. But I need your help.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it: FIND US A SOLDIER
Look, here's what I do:
- Search MySpace.
- Search Blogs.
- Search Facebook.
- Register with AnySoldier.com.
- Register with soldiersangel.org
- Ask around.
- Ask families that have soldiers if they know anyone that would like to be on our mailing list.
- Ask soldiers if they know soldiers.
- Ask churches.
- Ask the National Guard.
- Ask your local recruiting company.
- Ask anyone in any military uniform.
- E-mail everyone on your contact list.
- Blog it.
I'll bet you know someone that knows someone. I'll just bet.
I know you can find a least one, just ONE soldier, ANYWHERE that would like a few beanies, a soccer ball, OR a care package and a letter.
When you do, write down their address. Tell me a few things about them, if you can. Send us a photo, if you can. Or ask them to check out toys-for-troops.com, and e-mail us for more information.
Game On, People. For doing this you will receive: My undying adoration, and more important, my promise that somewhere down the road, someone's day will be a little bit nicer because you helped.
I guarantee it.
Have a great weekend.
