I want to repeat and mention some things to do for Christmas, the same things I wrote about on Veterans Day.
Make a donation to Operation Uplink, which provides pre-paid calling cards to our Troops so that they can call home.
Donate something to AnySoldier.com. Pens, writing paper, baby wipes, hand sanitizer. The link provides a list of suggested items that you can send.
If money is tight, and I can understand that it is, take a moment and at the very least send a message of Thanks and Love to our Troops.
Two of the many ways to send a message are Operation Dear Abby and Let's Say Thanks, a project sponsored by Xerox:
Send our Troops a message via Operation Dear Abby.
Send our Troops A card of thanks.
And for overall charitable donations, The Salvation Army.
Ooo. I feel so politically incorrect now for dropping the 'C' word.
On second thought, really don't. I can just tell Bean that we can't afford to call anymore until she gets back, that's a better idea.
Happy Christmahanukwanza, you haters.
A Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year to you and yours, TD!
The Salvation Army is indeed a notable organization and i will add them to the list. Thanks for calling my attn to them.
Your blog is one of the best...I cannot stay away. I must obey...
The very best wished back to you, too!
