A Little Taste Of Home

So as many of you are aware there are a bunch of anti-rights cultists staging a boycott on February 14th.  As a response our side of the fence is holding a buycott.

As I’ve been reading through the blogs and Facebook events there are a lot of people who don’t drink coffee.  One particular comment stood out to me today.

Hey, can someone buy one extra for me? I wish I could be there to support but I am doing my part to defend this country.

Let’s hit two birds with one stone.  Lets send our troops overseas a little taste of home.  I’m currently working on contacting Soldiers’ Angels to get the details on where to send donations with no firm destination.

If you are stationed overseas and would like a delivery, please contact me with your APO or FPO address.  I will mail any requests personally directly to you or your unit.  I have no idea how much traction this little idea is going to get, my hope is it gets a lot.

If you would like to participate or donate please contact me and I will keep you filled in with the details.  I want to ensure we fill requests from troops overseas first before sending it to Soldiers’ Angels.  So, just because you don’t drink coffee yourself is no excuse, you can buy a bag of roasted beans and send them to some one overseas who will greatly appreciate it.

Note: If you buy coffee to send overseas, get the pre-ground individual packets.  Keeps it fresher and not everyone is going to have access to a grinder.  Thanks Fred for the reminder.

    I’d say the Via packets would be even better than whole (or even ground) beans to send over.  Depending on where you are, you may not be able to get at a grinder or some sort of brewer, but there’s always a way to heat up water.
