I adopted a solider last January. It is one of the BEST things I have ever done. Writing letters, and putting together packages was so much fun! You don't realize how many things you have sitting around that could come in handy or make another smile. For example, I sent my solider newspapers-keeping him up to date with the Summer Olympics. I sent magazines that family members had already read. Candy and snacks that I received as gifts...all went to my solider. My sister is a teacher and her class made cards for my solider :) I usually purchased items to put in the care packages...but I just wanted to give some examples of item that you have sitting around! Be creative: I made a fleece blanket for him, my mom made a christmas stocking which I sent. When I received a letter from my solider and I could not have been happier to know that he received the packages! I would HIGHLY recommend adopting a solider. My solider is coming home in December-I will be adopting a new solider! I was getting wrapped up in my own world....this was a good way to remind myself of the world around me. GO ADOPT A SOLIDER!!!
