Christmas Thoughts and Ideas…
Update: 12/22/08 – Just a reminder, it is not too late to give a gift of love and support for our troops. Please log on and give a troop in harms way the gift of hearing the voices they love on Christmas Day! No gift can fill more hearts with joy for just $18!!!
Now that “Black Friday Sales” are happening, I would like to suggest how to put “the spirit of Christ” back into Christmas.
As we all know, with a tough economy it is going to be a rough time this Christmas Season. So this is my plan.
The AAFES (Online Military Exchange Store) is making it possible to buy phone cards for deployed troops at the PX discount rate and tax free!!! You can go here and look at all the great things you can do for our troops at the website. www.aafes.org
So, what is my plan? Every gift I buy will come accompanied with a card telling the recipient that a soldier, sailor, airmen or marine will be recieving $20 worth of gift minutes on their behalf to talk to their loved ones over the holiday season! My Christmas gift to me will be as many minutes as I can afford and as many prayers as I can offer to families who are waiting for their trooper to come home safe and sound. What better way to say thank you to our troops and their families who support them. I think I may well get excited this holiday season. Thanks to our Dept. of Defense for making the discount, tax free minutes so easy to get over the holiday!
