Trees for Troops

Several weeks ago I was contacted about Trees for Troops. I'd honestly never heard about this and had no idea what it was about, but I think it's a worthy cause and wanted to pass along the word to you guys.

Here is a little about Trees for Troops:

"Trees for Troops helps to make the holidays a little brighter for military families - especially those who are far away from their families. The gift of real Christmas trees bring a touch of home to those who sacrifice in order to preserve our freedom. The trees serve as a token of love and appreciation... Many tell us that the gift of a tree frees up a few dollars to be used on gifts, a nice holiday meal or gas money to go visit family."

The trees are delivered for free by FedEx, and will be given out to thousands of military families at bases all over the country during the holiday season. The Pepsi funding would allow them to reach an additional 5,000 families this year, but we need more votes! Voting for the Pepsi funding ends September 30th, but donations will of course be accepted for the rest of the year."


Please take a few minutes to visit this website and vote and spread the word about Trees for Troops!

Trees for Troops is in the Pepsi contest again for October voting so we need to spread the word and keep voting for them this month so they can win the $250k grant! Let's support our troops!
