Huge Success for eMOM's Operation Soldier Care

We're so proud to report that the Operation Solider Care project, a collaborative effort between eMail Our Military, Nancy Sutherland and Phyllis Zimbler Miller, was a huge success all due to your kindness and support for our troops.

The project officially ended August 18th and with your help we raised $3411.00 to purchase sun and skin care packages for our military service members facing the desert heat in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. We couldn't have done it without you and you are greatly appreciated.

Nancy Sutherland generously offered to match the amount we raised dollar for dollar. That doubles our donations and gives us a whopping total of $6822 in sun and skin care products to go to our troops.

As of this writing, Nancy and her team were putting the care packages together to ship to the guys and gals being supported through eMail Our Military. Nancy even made a short video for us showing some of the packages that they had already put together. You can see it here.

We can't thank you enough for really going above and beyond our humble expectations for this troop support project. Over the next few days we'll do a series of posts spotlighting all the fantastic folks who took the time to help with this project. Some folks blogged about it, others shared the information on their social networks and others took the time to pull some pretty wild and wacky stunts to keep folks motived and supporting our troops. It was great fun but we certainly couldn't have done it without all the great people who put their money where their hearts were and gave to our troops. You made it happen and you are truly great.

Big thanks to all of eMOM's Operation Soldier Care donors:

It's so amazing to have people like you in this world that are constantly looking out for others. Makes me proud to know you.

I agree. I'm honored to have donated along side a great list of folks.

The bald look got lots of comments today at work but no real negatives. Glad I did it.

Cheers.
