I initially got this information from Stacy's
blog and then more details from Laurie's
The third annual Holiays for the Troops project is underway. You can visit Laurie here
for more information. Please read below for details about the project, and email Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org for mailing info. or with any questions you may have.
Donations of either items to be sent to the troops or checks, money orders or gift cards to be used to shop for and ship items to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are being collected. Please visit Lori Foster's
website for a detailed listing of suggested items in the event you would like to do your own shopping for the troops. In addition to the items on this list, holiday items such as lights, decorations, ornaments, cards, etc. are much appreciated. In return for your donation, your name will be entered in a raffle for some exciting prizes. While the prize bundles haven't been put together yet, they will be generous and will include books and other goodies donated by authors and various others in the romance community.
The deadline for troop donations will be Thanksgiving Day, and the prize drawings will take place on Saturday, November 24.
Please tell your author friends about this project; prize donations are being accepted through the first of November. Please note that there is absolutely nothing political about this project. It is simply a show of support for the men and women who serve our country.
