Helping a Soldier

My sister has been sending emails back and forth to a soldier stationed in Iraq for about 6 months now. She is starting to get a box of goodies together to send him for Christmas. She has all the traditional stuff she is going to include, toiletries, crossword puzzles, candy and cookies. She asked me what other stuff he might like. I told her to send him CDs and books that those would help entertain him, which I am sure is something that he needs.

So of course I told her I would help fill her box by putting in Taylor Hicks CDs and his book Heart of Soul. I told her about jewelry sprout and the Proud of our Troops Drive. She thinks it is great that people do stuff like this to send stuff to the troops and is thrilled I am helping fill her care package.
