Adopt a Platoon

As a part of our season of giving, we embarked on a mission to send care packages to soldiers in our overseas military. We were given a list of 5 military servicemen and women to shop for, and it was with great joy that we were able to give back something to our troops (if only something small). We were delighted to stroll around Target and pick out stuff to send our troops. Here are some of the items that we included in our care package:

-Baby wipes, Socks, & Deodorant

-Magazines (according to our Facebook fans they like Maxim and GQ)

-5 hour energy drinks

-Gum, Hard Candy,  Spices (seasoning), & Coffee creamers

Our Facebooks fans also had a few ideas of what to ship soldiers. Here’s what they said:

-Tylenol PM

-Batteries AA

-Hand Warmers

-Beanie Babies  (they hand these out to the kids overseas)

-Crystal light

If you are interested in helping please visit Adopt a Platoon and check out their care package ideas. Trust me, they love to receive packages!
