In honor of America’s troops, we have sponsored two fantastic organizations this month by providing free ads. Homes for our TroopsÂ is an organization that provides homes forÂ severely injured Servicemen and Women and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and then coordinating the process of building a new home or adapting an existing home for handicapped accessibility. The finished home is then given to the veteran. We have given donations regularly to this charity here at the Strata-Sphere and ask you to please consider helping out yourselves.
We also support Marine Parents Care Package Campaign. They gather items and cash and use volunteers to create care packages for our active duty servicemen and women serving overseas. They currently have plenty of items to put in the boxes, but require money to pay for postage. TheÂ June packing date is scheduled for June 6, 2009 and the August packing date is August 15, 2009.
They’re asking every web site visitor to send a $1 bill to MarineParents.com to help raise the funds needed to ship 2000 care packages to our Marines. Put a dollar bill in an envelope and mail it to the post office box below. Their goal is to raise $20,000 by the packing date of Saturday, August 15, 2009. Here is the address:Â MAIL your $1 donation to:Â
Attn: Care Package CampaignÂ
P O Box 1115Â
Columbia, MO 65205-1115
Consider sending $1, $5, or more to help send these much appreciated packages to our brave Marines. We have given additional funds ourselves, and hope to inspire others to do the same by providing free advertising for this campaign.
