"Giving Back" Tuesdays

I wanted to dedicate today's post to all of the brave men and women who are overseas fighting the war. We must never forget all of those who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve our country. Our military needs our support! Give 2 The Troops is an organization who's "goal is to show our troops that communities in every state support and appreciate them. Since December 2002, we've supported approximately ONE MILLION deployed U.S. troops with loving care packages and letters from all over the nation. This was made possible only with the help of tens of thousands of generous and patriotic friends in the U.S. and abroad. To date, we've sent more than 70,000 enormous boxes and more than 16 million letters and cards from caring citizens. This is the least we can do to show our troops how much we care about them. Our troops need to know that we support and appreciate the sacrifices they make for us, our families, and our future. This is about giving back to those who give all."™

Give back by donating a care package to a soldier in need...they need everything from toothpaste, batteries, snack foods, socks, pre-paid phone cards, etc... to hand written cards and letters to brighten their day. With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, our troops need our thoughts, prayers and support while they spend the holidays away from their families and friends.
