Various characters in Tamora Pierce's Trickster duology, this month's featured titles at readergirlz, serve in their country's military and/or intelligence services. Anne from I Heart Daily brought our attention to some great groups that are gathering gifts for our women and men serving overseas, such as Support Our Troops, Operation ShoeBox, and Operation Gratitude.
And hey, even though I Heart Daily was talking about sending Halloween candy overseas, holiday candy this time of year is just as sweet.
Let's give thanks to our heroes!
UPDATE: Alyssa says, "I think there is one that should be added. It's the Let's Say Thanks website. For those who can't afford to send packages, you can send a thank you card to troops for free. You just pick the picture and the message and then the sponsor will print out your card and deliever it to the soilders. It's a great way to spread some joy this holiday too." (Thanks, Alyssa!)
