Operation Soldier Care Gets a Matching Sponsor

Nancy Sutherland Matches Operation Soldier Care Dollar for Dollar
By Phyllis Zimbler Miller

August is in full force through the U.S. with record heat waves keeping people inside in front of their air conditioners.

Imagine, then, how hot and uncomfortable U.S. men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan must be! And also imagine how nice it would be for them to receive sun/skin care products that can make their lives a tad easier.

Thanks to Trish Forant of eMail Our Military (eMOM) and Nancy Sutherland, Sales Director of Mary Kay, Operation Soldier Care is providing sun/skin care products to deployed service members to help relieve the ravages of a desert combat tour.

What started as a smaller project has now grown to a larger one due to Nancy’s offer to match all monies up to $5,000. This is, in effect, a 2-for-1 offer where every purchased Mary Kay gift set results in Nancy buying a matching second gift set.

You have your choice of adding money to our ChipIn Widget (shown on our sidebar) or you can show support for our deployed troops by stepping up to the plate and buying a Mary Kay gift set.

To purchase a gift set, click on this link to Nancy’s "Mary Kay Website" to buy the Satin Hands pampering gift sets After putting in the number of sets you'd like to purchase, be sure to put the words "Operation Soldier Care" in the comment section at checkout. Your gift sets will be sent directly to the deployed service members.

It’s that easy! So click on now, because this troop support project ends August 18.

To encourage you to buy multiple gift sets, the top five individual donors will receive a copy of the new book Mrs. Lieutenant: A Sharon Gold Novel by Phyllis Zimbler Miller, a $30 gift certificate to use on Nancy's website, an eMail Our Military 15-oz. ceramic coffee mug and the twitter tee of your choice from Eat, Sleep, Tweet.

Why not consider this as a great summer project for scouts or camps to pitch in to help our troops? Let’s show them that we care!
