I received an email regarding the Trees For Troops project. As you know, my brother is currently in training for the Navy and many of my family membres have served. I have a soft spot for all things military.
So here's a little about the project:
"Trees for Troops helps to make the holidays a little brighter for military families - especially those who are far away from their families. The gift of real Christmas trees bring a touch of home to those who sacrifice in order to preserve our freedom. The trees serve as a token of love and appreciation... Many tell us that the gift of a tree frees up a few dollars to be used on gifts, a nice holiday meal or gas money to go visit family."
"The trees are delivered for free by FedEx, and will be given out to thousands of military families at bases all over the country during the holiday season. The Pepsi funding would allow them to reach an additional 5,000 families this year, but we need more votes!"Please take a moment to visit the Trees For Troops project and cast your vote to help! Voting ends September 30th and the project is currently ranked 97th! Feel free to share this information on your blog, Facebook page or with other friends and family members.
