Happy Memorial Day to all!
Especially our past, current, and future U.S. soldiers!
American soldiers have always and continue to risk their lives for all of us and here at IEAS, we want to do as much as we can to repay them. Between now, Memorial Day, and the 4th of July, the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary will collect as many items as we can to send lots of care packages to our troops who are currently protecting our freedom. It is our hope that the supporters of IEAS - like YOU! - will help us to reach our goal of collecting these items!
IEAS will be making some videos and gathering pictures of some of wildly entertaining and funny animals that are sure to put smiles on the faces of all the troops! We have some ideas of the other items we'd like to collect and have listed some below, but if you think of any more, we are definitely open to ideas and suggestions, so send in anything that YOU think would be great to have.
IDEAS: Phone cards, magazines, books, movies, hand warmers, foot warmers, tooth brushes, mouthwash, febreeze, body wash, body spray, pringles, crackers, cookies, beef jerky, comic books, travel size games, decks of cards, memory cards, suntan lotion, non-carbonated drinks, uniform t-shirts (which can be ordered online from AAFES), underwear, pictures from home, hard candy, blue and black pens, notebooks, envelopes, fly paper, a multi tool or good folding knife, travel size toiletries, powdered drinks (gatorade), blank writable cd's, crossword puzzles, etc...
We have a few ideas of specific troops, platoons, and areas to send these packages to but if you have a soldier in mind, send in the address and (depending on how much we collect) we will send a package their way!
We thank you all for your help in supporting our troops, but most importantly, the soldiers will thank you! It is a great way to show your appreciation for them!
