Send Letters To U.S. Troops

Posted by Joanne On November - 28 - 2008

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. 🙂



Donate Your Old Cell Phones

Posted by Joanne On October - 26 - 2008

On a recent show, Glenn Beck featured an organization called Cell Phones For Soldiers, which was started by a brother and sister when they were kids with their own money. They’re now teenagers and have raised almost one million dollars in donations so far.

This is a great way to help out our troops and get rid of all those old phones you’ve been holding onto, not knowing what to do with. 🙂

We searched around our house and found TEN phones that we weren’t using.

There are drop off locations on their website, just punch in your zipcode to find the one nearest you. 🙂 Click the link above for all the information.
