Sometimes, you truly can be a victim of your own success. The roughly 250,000 volunteers that are Soldiers' Angels outdid themselves and came up with a warehouse full of "Wrapped in Holiday Spirit" care packages for deployed soldiers and those injured and in hospitals far from home.
The problem is, the money for shipping those packages is gone, and some 40,000 remain to be sent. Soldiers' Angels is now faced with trying to raise $150,000.00 to get the remainder sent so that they all arrive before Christmas. Some of us here at Blackfive have already been working behind the scenes to raise money and find solutions, but the clock doesn't wait.
Your help is needed. It doesn't matter if it is $1.00 or $5.00 or more, what matters is that each donation adds up and gets them closer to the goal. You can give whatever amount you like (PayPal link at bottom), or they have some other options available for you.
If your company cares to help, that too is appreciated and if you drop me a line I will get you in touch with the right people.
This time of year, we get hit with lots of requests for money. Keep in mind that this request sends some cheer to those who are serving so that you can enjoy this season in safety and comfort.
