Recently, my friend Brittany ran across the Baking Gals website, and we are putting together a care package to combine with some other contributors. Have you heard of what they do? It’s a collaborative effort that sends baked goodies to deployed soldiers to remind them of home.
We are putting our efforts together and our team leader has given us a shipping address and contact person to ship to. As you know… I am not great in the kitchen, LOL. But I have a pile of 3 dozen Oreo Pops ready to pack up:
And I also picked up some word game and sudoku books and decks of cards:
Yes, I realize some of those are kids’ games. It may prove to be an error in judgement on my part, but I figured, if *I* would play, then it’s not too juvenile… I hope.
It may not look like much, but that’s why I wanted to mention it. A few of us locally are each putting together a few things. But added together and shipped within the same week, we hope it adds up to a big display of appreciation. The group effort can really brighten a lot of soldiers’ days!
Last I heard, there was still time to get in on this round, if you hurry! (You are already baking up a storm for Christmas, right?) Brittany and I are shipping by Friday… but even if you sit this round out, there are teams sending shipments every month, so you can contribute any time!
