Operation: Love From Home
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the following program. I saw it on another blog and thought it was a worthy cause to promote.
During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them!!!! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ~ they need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:Mrs. Kathy OrrOPERATION: LOVE FROM HOMEP.O. Box 1660Loganville, Georgia, 30052The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to: LoveFromHome@Gmail.com**IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. I will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them! If you have any questions, please contact me at LoveFromHome@Gmail.com
Project USA: Support Our Trooops
My goal with this blog is to create a clearinghouse of resources for supporting our troops. I'm not in a military family so I really don't have any connections on where to begin. My plan is to start posting resources as I find them. Hopefully lots of people will post resources as a comment as well.
May the troops come home safely and soon!
