Operation Christmas Tree


I just came across this and thought it well worth posting. Goal is to send 5000 trees this year. So far they only have 2009. The deadline for donations is Wednesday, November 28. Remember too that all donations are tax deductible.

Here are a few facts about this great cause.


Operation Christmas Tree was started after a gentleman from Westminister's daughter was deployed to Iraq. They wanted a "bit of home" during the holiday season for the brave men and women who sacrifice so much. They faced the issue on how to ship. After brain storming they came up with the idea of shipping two foot tall tress to as many service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, which included their daughter. This was a major success among those that did received the trees. It was then and there that they decided to make Operation Christmas Tree a yearly project until the troops come home.


They have teamed up with the Armed Forces Foundation, a registered non-profit in Washington, D.C. to collect donations for this project. The cost of a tree with lights, decorations and shipping is $20. Here is the link to the website http://www.operationchristmastree.com/ . There you will be able to find the link for donations.

All donations are greatly appreciated. This will help make the holdiay season brighter for those who are away from their families and who are making the ultimate sacrifice.
