Sending love to Afghanistan!


Calling on everyone:

I am sending a care package to my friend who is stationed in Afghanistan.


U.S. Army Sgt. David Ward watches over the border crossing between Afghanistan and Pakistan August 27, 2011 at Torkham, Afghanistan. The port of entry is busiest in Afghanistan and the most important for the U.S. military, which imports more than 30 percent of all its supplies and military equipment through Torkham.

I thought it would be a great idea to send some notes of thanks/appreciation to him and his fellow soldiers, especially as we are coming to the anniversary of Sept. 11th.

If you are a teacher or a mom: 
Would you be willing to get your students/kids to write thank you's and/or draw pictures?! And then send them to me? Makes for a great craft time! 

Any one willing to take the time to write thank you notes and send it to me, please let me know.

I am hoping to get everything by Sept. 9 to send the package out Sept. 12.

Leave me your email address so I can send you my mailing address.

Spread the word!!! The more the merrier!! 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

I am a second grade teacher and would love to send some cards from my kids! My husband was in Iraq for a year and loved getting cards from my students. Please let me know if he has any family that can use some love and encouragement too. I know how hard it is to be here and worrying about a loved one overseas.
