Ashley's care packages
Organized by: Ashley Hickey
Hi, my name is Ashley and I am 17 years old. A couple months ago my boyfriend left for training in the military. While he was gone I wrote him a couple letters. When he was finally able to use his phone he called me and told me how much he loved the letters and it helped him stay positive knowing he has people supporting him. I started learning about the Wounded Warriors Project and the Soldier's Angels foundation because I wanted to become involved in some way. It's one thing to say oh I support the troops but are you actually doing something to support them? Actions speak louder than words. Supporting the troops is much more than just sending a donation. There are many ways such as writing letters, creating care packages, becoming involved in a support group to help the families with loved ones deployed and so much more. I created this fundraiser to raise money for care packages to be sent out to our troops deployed. All money goes to buying items such as tooth brushes, toothpaste, deodorant, toilet paper, etc. if you don't have the funds at this time to make a monetary contribution, I ask you to donate your time in writing a letter to go into the care packages. Every donation is appreciated.
