Care Packages

Our first two care packages went out today! We sent them via . We pick this organization because it will pass on the packages to soldiers who don't get much or even any packages or mail.
We did a seach for soldiers looking for soap and chose a group that had both men and woman in it and as a bonus they are also a K-9 unit. They are a frontline unit in Iraq.

We sent one package for a man and one package for a woman.
Both packages contain:

5-7 bars of soap ~ They each reieved one bar of the specialty bar made just for them called Apple Pie and it is Red, White and Blue

Lip Balms
Body and Facial Scrubs
Dog Toys and snacks
Toothbrush with a tube cover and paste
Disposable Razors

Woman's also included :
Journal and some pens
Facial clay
Lavender Body Powder

Shaving soap
Small first aid Kit

We were hoping to be able to send two boxes a month but realistically that isn’t going to happen as we just don’t have the funds to do it. So now we are shooting for three a month. We will send the Male/Female boxes as above and the next shipment will be full of snacks and dog treats.

As you are all aware, we could use a little help. We have set up a section where you can add a donation to your order. This of course is not mandatory and we will not think less of you if you can’t. But, if you can, please do.

We also want to be able to keep this going until our soldiers are home. We can't do it alone. Everyone who donates , we are going to add your name onto the letter , unless you specify not to.

Thank you all for your help and support in this project. We appreciate you, but the important thing is the soldiers appreciate you.

Freedom Isn’t Free, Ask Any Soldier

  1. Yay! I can comment in Firefox! I'm so happy for this program. It's very thoughtful and a great idea. I will try and help any way I can. I would like to post a blog on this and send some traffic your way! Funds are tight for now, but would love to donate in the near future. :)
