I'm raising money for a cause I care about, but I need your help to reach my goal! Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
I am organizing a care package shipment to soldiers overseas and am looking for anyone able to donate supplies or money to aide in my efforts! I have been in contact with a local armory who is going to take the care packages and ship them out which is AWESOME because that's a big savings in shipping costs. I am currently asking friends and family that have been deployed what their favorite things were to get or what they would have liked to have gotten and will try to update a list as I hear back from them....
It is so important to remember to say Thank You to people who are serving, especially those away from home. Having married a military man and married into a very strong willed military family I know first hand what a simple "thank you" can mean to them and I am really excited to get this started. My goal is to get about 20 boxes prepared and spend Sunday September 29th packing them. If donations could be given to me by the first week in September that would be great so I can go get whatever is still needed to fill boxes.
When PJ was deployed I sent him boxes weekly and each was about $50 worth of stuff so if you'd like to donate a full box but don't have time to shop, that is about the value we are going to try to get in each box. However, any donation or help is greatly appreciated!!!
Please message me if you'd like my address to drop things off, I'm happy to meet and pick anything up.
I want to say THANK YOU for helping with this!
