Giving Back to Those Who Give So Much

When we began this project we never thought that we'd more than double our humble goal. Today, Operation Soldier Care has raised over $1,200.00 to send Mary Kay sun/skin care packages to our troops.

As a way to give back to those who have given so much, we thought it would be nice to give our top 5 contributors some pretty great, generously donated items.

The list continues to grow as we near the end of the Operation Soldier Care campaign on August 18th so, if you're interested in taking home these great gifts, please give from your heart to help our troops who give so much of themselves unselfishly.

Our top 5 contributors will each receive the following goodies, gifts and giveaways:

1. An eMail Our Military 15-oz. ceramic coffee mug

2. The twitter tee of your choice from Eat, Sleep, Tweet

3. A ChoiceShirts.com gift certificate for 25% off their product(s)

4. An autographed copy of the new book Mrs. Lieutenant: A Sharon Gold Novel by Phyllis Zimbler Miller

5. A $30 gift certificate to use on Nancy's Mary Kay website (Products for men and women)

Bald for charity :) Someone offered me $100 to shave my head and two others chipped in - total of $350 and I am now bald.

Look for my added contribution to this great project on Friday (when I collect for my baldness!)

Keep up the great work!
