Adopt a Soldier

I received an email from an Indiepublic of Land of Etsy member about a great cause to help someone out that is out there protecting our freedom and putting his/her life on the line every day. Her friend Frannie has a son-in-law who is awaiting his 3rd tour in Iraq right now and her daughter decided to take this whole project upon herself - later realizing that she was spending so much money mailing packages... on a soldiers salary it was tough. So her mom, Frannie, decided to post for help on MySpace. These are men and women who have no families, or anyone, to write them letters, send them simple things they may miss and help them connect with the home they have been away from for so long.I just did some searching out there on the good ole "Internet" and found a slew of programs in which offer the same thing - helping others - humanity, touching a person's life, connecting, sharing, filling a void... not matter how big or how small - it matters. Here are a couple sites to check out: - - - - - - a Service Member:
Contact Frannie (I would assume you would have to be a MySpace member) & there is a link on the right top part of her MySpace page as well: .
Check the sites out... see what it is all about... put feelings and views aside - even if you don't believe in the war... or in war in general... they truly believe in what they are doing... they believe they are making a difference.
