Hi everyone -

I have some friends who have done an incredible job getting together items to send to a group of Servicemembers who will be overseas this Christmas and away from their Families.  Unfortunately, they lack the necessary funds to pay the postage to get them there and shipping is very expensive.

While there are some amazing organizations out there which support the Troops, my friends have been unable to find any which can help with shipping expenses.  There are about 16 large boxes and a few smaller flat rate boxes waiting to go, and the conservative estimate for postage is right around $600.00.  To add to the urgency, if the boxes are not shipped very soon they will not arrive in time for Christmas.

I am starting this FundRazer page with the hopes that we can all chip in and get these costs covered.  Please give if you can.  It will mean a lot to the Servicemembers for sure, but also to the Families who worked so hard to provide their loved ones a bit of holiday cheer while they are away from home.

I can't offer much in return, but I will be glad to send a handwritten note of thanks to each person who makes a donation here and provides their mailing address. You are also welcome to make an anonymous donation if you prefer.

Thank you so much for your help, and best wishes for a happy holiday season!
