carepackage.pngDon’t know about you, but the Silly String for soldiers story got me in the heart. I hope you’ll help me show the world what the online community can do when we get together behind a cause.
Researching my post about why it took a year for a soldier’s mother to finally be able to ship 80,000 cans of Silly String to Iraq to help the troops detect the trip wires of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), I learned from Kit Up that there are a lot of other products – not standard issue – that are helpful to soldiers.
Please, help me spread the word. If you blog, post about it. If you have a newsletter, send them a notice. Let’s show the world that whether or not we support the war, — and I most certainly do not — we DO support our troops.
Here’s a list of just a few of the many organizations, large and small, found in a Google search, that send care packages to the troops in Iraq and around the world:

Operation Care and Comfort
Operation Care Packages
Soldiers’ Angels
