Not that we're not all sending things, but I bet Boatsie (aka Gail Van Vranken) could help, maybe even divert some stuff that's already going to Afghanistan. We donate to Boatsie's Boxes all the time because our Dollar Tree has a current list of needs and the cashiers always remind us! It's kind of late to call her tonight, but I could in the morning if you want. Here's the link to her page:

Becky that sounds great. If you could contact Gail for me that would be supper nice and much appreciated. I am spending my days and nights at Children's Hospital with Kim's daughter. I found out today that all of this arthritis stuff is part of an allergic reaction to amoxicillian. Being stuck at the hospital doesn't give me much computer time. thanks for your help everyone, I know the troops really appreciate the help. Nanna

My coworkers really stepped up, we have a lot of stuff to send. i hope to get at least one box out on Saturday. Tee shirts, shaving products, deodorant, etc. The CEO of our company has a son in the army, so he really stepped up for them!

Thought I would share the pics of the first wave going out on Sat.

That's everything so far, from combs to t shirts to deodorant to toothbrushes to baby powder & chapstick!
And here it is all boxed up and ready to go!

Nannaknits,
I just got around to loading pics of the 2 boxes I sent to your daughter.I bought 4 of everything so at least I know 4 soldiers are taken care of . Here is what I sent in case anybody needs ideas. This is the kind of stuff I send my son in Iraq. I also put everything that is liquid in zip lock bags in case they spill or break open. Have had that happen before Thanks for letting me help in this GREAT cause. Just to bad the government can't help out our troops when things like this happen. It is the LEAST they could do for our troops that are over there putting their life on the line for our country.

toothpaste
toothbrushes & cases to put them in.
Tic Tacs
Hand sanitizer
Razors
Shaving Gel
Towels
Wash cloths
Body wash
Nasal spray
Chap stick
Hand wipes
Deodorant
