Okay, on behalf of my good friend Laurie Damron, a very special lady herself, this announcement:
It’s fall! That can only mean that Christmas is right around the corner. I am once again doing a Holiday for the Troops project. Thank you so very much, Denyse, for giving me temporary residence here to chat up this very worthwhile cause.
How it works - you send either items to be sent to the troops or checks, money orders or gift cards to be used to shop for the troops, I then shop and put together shipments and send them out to servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This link - http://lorifoster.com/author/militarytribute.htm - will take you to the Military Tribute page on Lori Foster's website where you will find a complete list of suggested items in the event you would like to do your own shopping for the troops. In return for your donation, your name will be entered in a raffle for some wonderful prizes. Pretty amazing, huh? The drawing will be held on October 31st and I plan to mail the boxes during the second week of November to ensure delivery before the holidays. It is exciting every time we send shipments for the troops but the holiday boxes are especially fun to put together. If you are unable to send a donation of any kind, but would like to send cards, letters or drawings by your children for inclusion in the boxes, they would be greatly appreciated! I am hopeful that if you have a blog you might mention this project and provide my information. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING POLITICAL ABOUT THIS PROJECT. It is simply a show of support for the men and women who serve our country. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks bunches and big hugs to you, Denyse.
*NOTE from Denyse*
The COMPLETE prize list is now in the FILES section of my newsgroup, so please take a minute to look at it, and to contribute to this special project.
