Please participate with Operation Sunscreen for Soldiers for only $40

I am working on a fundraiser for soldiers deployed in Afghanistan an issue which is near and dear to my heart to be delivered in early July. I personally wanted to ask you if you would consider purchasing a few of the gift packs to the soldiers. I am taking care of the shipping to Soldiers Angels a terrific group that people can adopt soldiers and they support the troops. My Aunt sponsors a soldier herself and as she is a teacher her class also sponsors soldiers thru out the year with care packs and letters and cards. I attached the documents explaining the info. The fundraiser is called Operation Sunscreen and I plan to get the order in by the 15th of June to get the package there before the 4th if possible. The kits are $40 a piece. IF you know anyone else that might be interested please let me know. Would you please considering coming in at one of the different tiers and it is tax deductable.

Thanks for all you do everyday.
