Wow two posts in one day. I'm rolling folks.
I became involved in an organization just before Christmas that I wanted to let people know about. It's called Soldier's Angels. They match soldier's that have no one to correspond with to those that volunteer. You can write letter's, send care packages, etc. Just let our men and women know we love them, are thinking of them and support them. No matter your opinion of this war our soldiers need the small comforts we can offer.
So I contacted http://soldiersangels.org and was matched up with a soldier. My guy is Kelvin. I've sent care packages and written letters. Just knowing I'm brightening the life of one of these brave men has lifted me.
Once you're matched with a soldier you can purchase your own care items and send them personally or go to http://www.angelsstore.org and they have prepackaged packs they'll send for no shipping costs (they pick out things they know the soldiers need). And today I was able to send Kelvin a Valentines Day package that was $29.00 but a coupon code (angels15) got me $15.00 off. So I sent him a boatload of stuff for $14.00.
Please, if you can, do this little thing for them. They deserve it. And you'll feel good too.
