Really??? Yes, Really! There is one such team of men numbering to be about 80 that were told just that! They call themselves team “Secret Squirrel” … And guess what … They were only 80 K outside the Hazard Zone. 80 K? Well, for those that don’t know metrics 80 K is less then 50 miles.
That is right, 50 miles from where the actual fighting is going on, living in a tent, isn’t close enough for our men to qualify for personal items and treats at the holidays? … Do we all really feel that way?? I for one DO NOT! … What am I going to do about it? I am going to show these 80 men what real Americans think about who Qualifies.
With that said Our Family is now working to get 80 or more of the following items to send to Afghanistan in time for the holidays. There are mail restrictions so we are planning multiple mailings and we have a secret contact who will be “holding” the stuff until the “Secret Squirrel Santa” makes their holidays bright and cheery.
We are inviting anyone in our community (online or off line) that would like to join our family in adopting this team of men, and showing them that we support them no matter how far they are from the hazard zone, to donate any of the following items (plus any that will travel well)
coffee & sugar packets
Peanut Butter Cookies
Reece’s Peanut butter cups
Any candy bars really
Any Guy stuff
Our biggest cost in Operation SSS will be in the Postage so we will be taking donations for that as well.
We plan on making the Holiday Bright for this team of brave soldiers and you can help too. We have set up a donation button just for this event on the home page and we plan on making the Holiday Bright for this team of brave soldiers and you can help too. When you donate if you will leave a note with your donation as to what you want your donation used for we will take care of everything. Tell us what items you want purchased and we will get them in the boxes. Thank you all in advance for your help in making this team feel loved and appreciated at the holidays.
