This is Melanie. She works at our local post office. She is stamping customs forms.
Stamp, Melanie, Stamp.
The forms go on boxes of children's books. The books go to soldiers in Iraq.
Those soldiers will read the stories to their boys and girls back home. The boys and girls will hear their moms and dads reading the books. They will see their moms and dads reading the books. The boys and girls will get the books so they can read the stories, too.
Yes, this Saturday I sent out another 200 or so books to the 47th Combat Support Hospital in Al Asad, Iraq. I still have about 8 more boxes to go and will send those out this Saturday.
Thanks to Rene Martin and the customers of Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh for their kind donations and thanks to the people here at MicroMass who have helped pay to ship these books to Iraq.
If you would like to help, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll send you the address. Send one book or one hundred, whatever you can do.
Help a kid connect with mom or dad. It'll make you feel good all day.
