We are looking for donations to help send care packages to our Nephew, Staff SGT George Hooper and his unit stationed on the front lines in Iraq. They are with the Calvary Scouts attached to the 82nd Airborne Division. They are in an area where there aren't any stores to buy anything. They have roughly another 30 weeks left of their deployment.

Boxes are $17 to ship. Normally it cost us another $30 plus to fill the boxes and we are trying to send at least two a week because some of the guys in the unit do not have family who can send care packages. So our Nephew has been sharing these packages with his men.
We have already shipped out 8 boxes but its beginning to get a little expensive for us. Two a week will cost us roughly $3000 for the full deployment.

We are setting a Goal of $1500 to help offset some of our cost. With $1500 dollars we think we can ship and fill 8-10 boxes a month. The Packages generally contain comfort foods, canned meat, soups, coffee and various items they can't get over there. The Guys are very grateful when they receive these packages. It takes about 3 weeks to reach their battle position and they very much look forward to receiving them. So anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated, even if it's only a dollar.

Wether you are able to donate or not, we would appreciate it if you could keep them in your prayers and share this link with others so we can make it go viral. Craigslist will not allow us to place a link here to our page so if you reply to our ad we will send you the link. Again if you can not donate we understand but if you could please share the link on social media we would be very grateful.

Thank you and God Bless and God Bless America and our Troops and may they all come home safe
