feeling generous?


Friends - I have a request of you. A family friend is a paratrooper in Afghanistan and he wrote home letting his family and friends know what they could send in holiday care packages to his fellow paratroopers. Many of them either don't have family or rarely receive letters from home. These men work in the worst conditions to keep all of us safe at home and I figure this is a great opportunity to do my part to make their holiday season merry!
Here are the items he let us know his fellow paratroopers would LOVE to receive:
- Playstation 2 & 3 games ( I was so proud of Guy... he gave them his old games... good riddance!)
- Movies
- Baby wipes (no hand sanitzer please)
- Beef Jerky (what is it with men and their jerky?!?!?)
- Single packet drink mixes... you know those Crystal Lite things that you can stick in your water bottle
- Candy
- Shaving brushes (they clean their weapons with these!)
- Protein Bars
- Gum
- Mac 3 Razor blade refill pacs
If you're interested in sending a care packages, please comment or email and I can send you the address. You'll need to send the package in the next week to reach them by Christmas. I had so much fun shopping with my mom to put together two packages for them. Bonus that A LOT of the items can be found at The Dollar Store so you can get more for your money! Tid bit: I ordered some used Playstation games from Amazon for cheap!
Thanks ladies - you're the best!!! Happy Hump Day!!!!!
