Today is the last day of the Spirit of America Blogger Challenge!
If you haven't donated yet, please go do so. Even one day's Latte money can make a big diffference. If you don't believe that, go read Mick's tale of the joy brought by an empty water bottle and a couple of handfuls of cheap candy.....
I've heard the same stories. My husband's good buddy is currently stationed in the Green Zone in Baghdad, and even one friendly gesture is enough to convince people that the soldiers are there to help them. You better believe that every box we've sent to Iraq is full of Jolly Ranchers and Starlight Mints (since soft candy melts in desert heat) for the kids he meets.
Even a few dollars helps make a lasting impression. Please help us make today the best of the challenge!
The challenge has raised almost $74,000 so far. Let's make it over $75,000!
We're in 5th place over all, only $110 behind Iraq the Model!!!! Can't we make 4th?
