Each month my creativity has to kick into gear, in order to deliver laughter to our deployed heroes overseas. July 4th care packages are a huge success because of the kind donations for sheets and small fans, along with so many other “treats” I was able to collect in my travels. (my work schedule has been insane this summer!)
Veteran’s Day is right around the corner, and the guys (I don’t have any females that I am supporting presently) are going to be receiving treats from my layover in Paris. However, there are still requests for school supplies and items for the local children in Iraq & Afghanistan, which I will be collecting for September care packages.
One particular item I will be accepting donations for are beach balls. When volunteering in Haiti we helped deliver “Peace Packs” which gave me the idea. (With coaching from my friends, I was able to get a deal from xump.com and am hoping to buy 150-200 0f the beach balls to distribute between the units I am supporting. That means I need to get $350 to pull it off!) Below you will see a photo of what I am planning to send in September. My goal is for the troops to be able to blow these up and have some priceless moments between themselves and the local children.
Why not create a summer project with your kids to make cards for our deployed Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, and Sailors? If you could ONLY know how much a card or letter means to our troops. How would you feel if you were away from YOUR family and friends AND in a war zone? Please help me to make a difference for these brave individuals and uplift their spirits!
Please know I appreciate your kind donations so very, very much. Even $5 helps towards the postage, as I have 10 heroes I am supporting right now and cannot do any of this without your help. You can send your cards and / or make a donation by simply clicking on the “donate” button on my website ( http://alwayssupportourheroes.com/ ) or send to:

From my heart, to our heroes overseas, and to each family member of our Armed Forces, I thank each of you who believe in me, and help to make a difference! We each can change the world .. one person .. one life at a time. )
