I do a lot of giveaways on this theater blog, and I love being able to give the gift of theater experiences to you. Theater can create wonderful moments and emotions that fill our souls. Today I want to fill your soul in a new way. Instead of giving something away, I’m going to ask you to give.
I have a good friend, Moira, whom I’ve known since high school. Her son, Martin, is one of our fine soldiers helping to do good over in Afghanistan. Moira is amazing at supporting her son and his friends, sending care packages on a regular basis filled with non perishable foods and other items to help make life a little more bearable over in the big sand pit, as they call it. Moira is sending Martin 20 bottles of Avon’s bug repellant that he and his buddies say is the best at killing the monster mosquitoes in Afghanistan. I’m helping her get the bottles at cost, because it just doesn’t feel right to make a profit when it comes to helping our soldiers.
Now here’s where you come in. I want to raise money so we can send even more bottles of bug guard to our soldiers. Let’s help out in a simple way to send our soldiers something they really need. If we all join in then it can turn into a really nice way to support our soldiers who do so much for our nation.
