A decent number of you contacted me regarding A Little Taste of Home and I figured I’d give a quick update.
I’ve got new contacts now for soldiers overseas, many of whom are in a position to distribute the coffee amongst their brothers in arms. I’ve got more addresses coming in daily from other friends and contacts. I’m thinking at this point I’ll be able to send all the coffee straight out unless some how I get a massive influx.
I did have a question about monetary donations so I can just buy the coffee. I want to try and set something up this weekend but I can’t make promises. There’s some legal aspects I need to investigate too on the money front.
If you know someone overseas and want to send them coffee, do it. My suggestion for the type of coffee is Starbucks Via, especially if they’re in any type of combat position. Besides, it comes highly recommended by associates of the guy’s were sending it to.
If you want to participate hit up the contact form or send an email to: soldiers.angels at the-minuteman.org and I will add you to the distribution list. Same goes if you’re a soldier that stumbles across this and would like some coffee.
To those who’ve already signed up to help. Awesome and thanks.
