I am incredibly excited to be able to announce a new series that I am very proud of! Bloggers Around the World Supporting the Troops is a Deployment Care Package Program sponsored by JavaCupcake.com and is designed to inspire bloggers to use their creative expertise to put together themed care packages to send to a platoon of deployed soldiers in Afghanistan.
Not just any soldiers though… MY SOLDIER. Each care package will go to my husband, SGT David Eves, and his platoon of fellow soldiers. They were recently deployed to the Kandahar Provence of Afghanistan to aid in the pulling out of the US Army as their time there comes to an end. The picture below is of the platoon the night they deployed. My husband is third from the left in the back row. *swoon*
Each blogger will include in their post:
- Contents of each package
- DIY instructions for anything homemade or created
- Tips & Tricks for packaging
