Today is the Official Day of the Deployed.
Right now, our men and women overseas need our support. Soldiers' Angels is in the middle of a drive to get every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, and Marine a care package for the holidays. There are a lot of ways to help, whether you send your left over Halloween candy or donate some much needed postage:
Each care package costs about $12 to send, and Soldiers' Angels is aiming to send a care package to every single hero deployed to Afghanistan.
And that's where the candy comes in...
Fall and Winter are the perfect time to send chocolaty and gummy candy to the troops. It's also a great way to deal with the candy overload of Halloween. Our deployed military men and women always enjoy candy in their care packages, and this is the perfect time of year for shipping all types of candy--the cooler weather means it's less likely to melt!
From putting together a big fundraiser for postage to helping your kids collect candy for the troops on Halloween, there are endless ways to get your family and community involved in this month's project!
To help make holiday care packages a little sweeter, you send your candy to the following addresses, or click here to help with postage (links to PayPal and AuthorizeNet are at the bottom).
