Care Packages

Lately, i've been wanting to get involved and make a difference doing something for the community I know there are alot of organizations all across the country that are run by volunteers who raise money to send soldiers care packages while they are deployed. It is the simple things like this that let the soldiers know that us back home really care about them and support everything they are doing.I would LOVE to try to get school and the community invovled in something like this. The only thing is I have no idea how to even begin to go about this. But hey, it's worth a shot right? :)

I'm going to talk to a few people and propose the idea and see what they say before I try to propose the idea to the school and the community. I think I will talk to the pastor at our Church. He's a really good friend of the family and i'd love to get his intake on the idea. It would be AMAZING to raise money for something like this, the soldiers overseas definitely need all of our love and support! If there is already something like this in the community, then i'd love to get involved and spread the word.Maybe just maybe I could get enough volunteers and people interested that this could really go somewhere! I have a really great feeling about this!

If I could get this started and start raising money then in a few months when Cale and the unit he is with gets settled in Afghanistan, i'd LOVE to try to send all the men in his unit care packages and surprise him.

Semper Fi!
