“Birthday in a Box 2013”

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

National Guard unit enjoying “Birthday in a Box” from 2012

It’s my birthday month … and time for “birthday in a box” for our deployed troops. If you would like to send any party items (like balloons, cups, beads, silly hats, party favors, plates, feather boas, board or card games,  etc) that I can include (or postage $$), it would be greatly appreciated.

This is something I have enjoyed doing over the years and the troops really love getting cake mixes, candles, and frosting and everything to help them celebrate my birthday with them.  🙂   (they also are still needing scarves, hats, and items to stay warm … it is very cold in Afghanistan right now!!)

Sending fun toys like Nerf balls, etc is part of the plan (if I can raise funds). Please send anything you want me to include to: PO Box 449, Mercer Island, WA 98040.

Can’t wait to see what you all come up with to help make this a success … deadline to ship to me would be 31 January 2013 (want to give everyone time to be a part of the fun!!!  ).

If you want to PayPal money for this, you can do so to:

(if you need a street address to ship items that you are ordering from a website, please let me know …)

Thanks so much for being a part of something fun to continue in my efforts of never allowing any of our valiant heroes to feel alone on the battlefield, and a reminder that people care back “home”.


PS.  <3 If anyone wants to make Valentine’s cards for our service members, I will happily include them with the birthday boxes …. the timing will be perfect.  Which ALSO means …. anyone who wants to make homemade fudge …. please send it for me to include, too!!!   <3
