Operation Gratitude Care Package Weekend!

It's hard to describe what an incredible, well, operation Operation Gratitude is. It started in a California woman's living room and today it is so large the Post Office has assigned it its own zip code.

They went from scraping to fill a few cartons a month to the point where this December they will ship their 500,000th package.

They're a registered, fully deductible charity. NO ONE makes a penny off it. EVERYONE involved is a volunteer.

It's a totally apolitical group; they're not interested in politics, just in reminding the deployed troops that they are not forgotten. Check out their site to see what you can do to get involved.

Last weekends packaging resulted in 16980 boxes (7890 on Saturday, and 9000 on Sunday). Yeah! The boxes cost $11.00 each to mail. If you're so inclined, especially this season, please donate whatever you can. Purchases at the on-line store support it too. This would be a great way to show your gratitude to those that give us our liberty!

That 500,000 package is a very extra special box that will celebrate this milestone with the inclusion of keys to a custom built motorcycle! That will be one lucky (and surprised) troop! Hope the paramedics are standing by.
