RE: Word from Iraq


I have not read the entire thread yet, but agree with many of the
comments made.

One of my clubs (ponds) sent items over to Iraq for Xmas this year.
Started with one members son who is stationed there and telling his mom
how he and others could really use.....

She brought it up to the membership if anyone wanted to donate items.
Somehow it escalated into mayhem. We sent skids of stuff that did arrive
just in time for Xmas. Amazing when some of us asked businesses, they
did big time. One grocery store gave us cases of those cut and bake
cookies... we sent like 3000 of them and I don't think I ever want to
bake another cookie! Best Buy donated cases of batteries, casinos cases
of playing cards, schools had children send letters, parents donated
other items, banks allowed donation box drop offs, and ended up with
1000 prs of socks and the list goes on.... it was totally amazing how
easy it was to get them to do it. We never expected to get that much
stuff, but felt good that many recipients of these items knew so many
did not forget them.... word is we may try for another shipment in the
spring...

Ps the hardest part was getting all this thru the government security to
the troops... but we did....:)
