One of the soldiers I am currently supporting in Afghanistan has been having a bit of a difficult time. In an effort to uplift his spirits a bit, I went to Tijuana a few months back during my layover in San Diego and bought a Tigger Pinata to send to him.
Tigger (T eye double guh rrrr) is about 4 feet tall and is going to take probably close to 25 lbs of candy. (that is how much the pinata I sent last year to Task Force Dirigo took).
This will be the 4th Tigger Pinata that has gone to Afghanistan .. nothing like making my own mark on the world, right? whoooo whooo whoo (or whatever that funny noise is that Tigger makes).
If you would like to make a cash donation to assist with purchasing the candy or the shipping of this magnificent care package, that would be wonderful. Or, if you live in the area & want bring me candy (please NO CHOCOLATE … it is 120 degrees over there, and the chocolate will cause everything to melt together), that would be awesome as well. The package containing the Tigger Pinata will not be sent until the 2nd week of August, so it will arrive at exactly the right time.
Please send checks payable to Robin Schmidt, or an American Express Gift Card (for me to purchase the candy or use at the post office) to the address below .. or if you want to donate online, you can do so via my website http://alwayssupportourheroes.com/ and click on the “donate” button in the upper right corner.
Thanks a million for being a part of making a tremendous difference .. by helping me to help boost moral for this particular soldier .. and his entire unit!
