Your child's holiday wish list
THE VERY BEST HOLIDAY GIFT !
This year the best gift for the holidays is to reach out to those in need and one of those groups we need to help is our amazingly brave and worn out troops ! Did you know every 80 minutes we are losing a veteran to suicide? If you think you are weary of the war and hearing about it, imagine our military men and women who never get a day off.
BE A HERO, and ADOPT A HERO with us at Homefront Hugs USA with us please or find out about it before time runs out to send them anything for the holidays. We do this 365 days a year.
We make it so easy and inexpensive.Others can donate and help your care package but you just can NEVER share the address due to OPSEC,...operational security...basically your safety and theirs.
We have a HUGE page with photos and ideas of care packages and you can send a magazine and a stick of gum ( ALWAYS US postage even for Afghanistan and hospitals in Germany) and you will be so appreciated...and of course a card or letter... saying hello...letting your hero know he or she was not forgotten.
Come on everyone...kids and families ! What more do our troops need to do to earn your care and support. Lets stop the divisions in this country of ours and THANK OUR TROOPS together.
Email Adoptions@HomefrontHugs.org or BING or GOOGLE us...search Homefront Hugs USA and our website will come right up ! After all, it's our12th year of trying to help a little but only with amazing volunteers all over the world.
Even in our 12th year...no one earns a PENNY. We just need your hearts and about 1-2 hours a month ( that includes driving to the post office) for all the freedoms and safety we too often take for granted here....
Help me make sure NO SERVICEMAN OR WOMAN IS FORGOTTEN this holiday season...
Isn't that what the holidays are about ?
THIS IS THE BEST GIFT YOU COULD GIVE ANYONE AND YOURSELF THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
A simple care package and a letter....for a soldier needing support in the middle of ducking IEDs in the harsh winters of Afghanistan or healing in a hospital....
Or even a simple care package for morale for a military family needing a hug while their hero is deployed or healing at Homefront Hugs USA....
That my friends, and friends to be, reaching out to one another this Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever we celebrate is the BEST gift of the season...
Your kids might not get it now, and you can still buy the other gifts, but trust me asa counselor....they'll get it faster than most adults !
It's time for a reality check even though the war is not here because our troops,families,vets and wounded warriors need us more than ever.
And if you are one of our troops needing support, just emai me and we'll get you wrapped in hugs and support...asap.
Hugs to all of you...and if nothing else...share this need please with others...a simple post or Tweet...an email so perhaps someone will want to reach out...or a few more ....for our hundreds JUST DEPLOYED and waiting...
Sincerely in thanks,
