Here’s what she emailed:
“I collected a stash of samples for 2 years. I came across a blog called anysoldier.com. It’s a site that gives out soldiers addresses that have been deployed overseas in places like Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. They let you know what they need in care packages. I came upon a soldier who was asking for travel size items because their missions took them to villages for a period of a couple of days and they needed small items because they couldn’t bring full size shampoo’s because space was limited. I sent her my 2 year stash and she shared them with the other 30 she shared her tent with. She said they felt like it was Christmas when they received the package with all the different things in it. Maybe other readers just collect like I do. I sent the package parcel post and it only cost $14 dollars. Its a small way to help our troops.”
I absolutely LOVE this idea and not only because my hubby is military, but because these simple acts of kindness are just amazing! If you read my blog, you are most likely very talented in the coupon department… and yes, it is a talent! Use this awesome talent to give back and show others you care. Not only is this generous and kind, but nothing can replace that warm feeling you get inside when you do something special like this!
