Operation Gratitude, Saturday, October 30

 While jester turned fool Jon Stewart was holding his plastic "Rally to Restore Inanity" in DC even as bombs were being pulled off airplanes around the world, real sanity broke out in Van Nuys CA as people lined up around the armory building to pack and send gift boxes to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan through Operation Gratitude.

Over 6,000 packages were finished before lunch.  The target is 10,000 packages/day during this holiday packing period.

Like everyone else in the current economic 'recovery' OG is finding cash harder to come by.  This is a fully deductible registered charity and there are many ways to support them, from straight financial donations to programs to recycle old cell phones.  Check out their website for ways to keep the boxes flying!
