Hey to all my Peeps, Tweeps, and stalkers - :)
Please, PLEASE go check out the wonderful work being done by
eMail Our Military. If you know me or are familiar with my book, you know how important this work is to the troops. Please help, by donating, or sharing the word on your own networks and blogs. Specifically, eMail Our Military needs help keeping the website running. More info is on that site, so go check it out.
When I saw this post I knew I HAD to help them out. Instead of donating from each book sale, I just made a donation. I could say how much, but that takes out the fun of making a donation, right?
Now, if lots of books sell, I'll make a bigger donation :)
I actually included eMail Our Military in the book, because they are taking up the slack, so to speak, for an older program that had to be discontinued for security reasons.
When I was serving in Desert Storm, any person "back home" could write a letter, and mail it to "Any Service Member", and that letter or package would be delivered to the soldiers or sailors at the front. From there, if the person who received the mail wanted a pen pal, they could then write back, with their address, and then mail was delivered directly to them.
As I mentioned in my book, I wrote back to 100 people, and had at least 50 of those people then write back to me. Let me tell you, getting mail is a GOOD THING when you're "over there".
So, maybe this is just kind of my way of helping to pay back those people who wrote me.
Thanks for reading, and as always, thanks for supporting the troops.
To help out, please go to eMail Our Military and you can make a donation there.
And if you'd like to get an idea of how much the troops enjoy getting mail, you could buy my book.
