140,000 Holiday Care Packages

140,000 Holiday Care Packages
Boxes of Love and Support

Right now, about 140,000 service members are spending yet another holiday in a war zone, and now more will be on the way before Christmas. We want them to know that they are remembered, that we are thinking of them during this Holiday Season, and that we are grateful for their service.

Fortunately, Angels and donors have come through for Wrapped in Holiday Spirit like champs!! We have tens of thousands of blankets and tons of gifts and supplies on hand for our heroes — hot chocolate and socks, candies and snacks, beautiful cards and notes of support — all just waiting to be delivered...

And that’s where we need this final push. Gathering the postage for 140,000 care packages is a gigantic undertaking and every bit helps — whether $5, $10, $50 or $100...

Even with the belt-tightening we’ve all done this year, I know $5 is within reach for most of you. If everyone who received this email gave at least $5 — more if possible — we’d have enough to send every last package!!

Please help send a box full of love and holiday cheer to a deployed Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine!

You can even have a holiday care package sent to a hero in honor of a family member or friend. It makes a fantastic holiday gift! Click here to order a holiday care package for someone you know.

We're down to the last few days — it can take up to three weeks for packages to reach the most remote areas of Afghanistan, which means we have to get things sent this week if we want all our heroes to have them in time for Christmas. Please give what you can!

Together we can make sure all these wonderful gifts get to the brave men and women we hold so close to our hearts this Holiday Season.
