You know that I've got a *bit* on my plate. I didn't possibly see how I could pull off 2 back-to-back holiday events in 4 weeks, so I did something I'm learning that is OK to do. I screamed:
Yes. Of course you can help! Thank you for asking. We're not going to make a bunch of little kids do ALL of the work!! Come, help us help them help us!
- If you'd like to donate care package items for this project, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A list of care package ideas can be viewed here:
- If you'd like to sponsor the cost of shipping one box ($10.95), click on the PayPal button in the sidebar.
- Bakers, bring me a dozen cookies on November 10. 2 dozen, if you're feeling industrious.
- Send me a note, and I'll send you a printable flyer to post in your office, church, VFW, post office...wherever you'd like to post it.
- Forward a link to this blog entry to anyone that you think might like to participate.
We will mail our boxes on November 12, the day after Veteran's Day, so that they can be in soldier's hands by Thanksgiving morning.OUT OF TOWNERS, DON'T FORGET: YOU CAN PLAY TOO! I'm e-mailing soldiers' names and addresses to folks right now, from San Diego to Philadelphia, that want to send a care package to a soldier.
Can I make a bold statement? Shopping for, and sending a box to a soldier is going to make you feel very, very good.
I am still shopping around for a venue for our Christmas event. We like to send more "luxurious" gifts for Christmas: CDs, DVDs, gourmet foods, socks, shirts, knives, games...anything you'd like to find under your own tree. We'll wrap each gift and send each soldier a box full of presents.
If you can't participate with the Thanksgiving boxes, you're welcome to throw a little something into the Christmas boxes.
If you have any ideas where I can throw this event together in this berg, put it in the comments!
I'll be hitting the streets to figure it out myself!
See you soon!
