Operation Gratitude is a terrific organization that was started by one woman who wanted to help the troops after September 11, 2001. To date, they have sent hundreds of thousands of care packages to U.S. troops overseas. They collect items at certain times of the year, but letters are welcomed year round.
My husband, myself and two of our children (my two daughters) decided to get involved and we wrote five letters. Here my two daughters (ages 10 & 13) writing their letters. If you have a few minutes to spare, check out their website for more details and write a letter today.
