Will You Be A Drop of Rain?

May 15, 2008

Operation Dad needs 25,000 drops of rain. One drop won’t accomplish much, but enough drops can turn a desert into an Oasis. We need 25,000 people to give 1 dollar by May 21st. It will cost a little over 5 dollars to send each package. (Yes we have checked with the Post Office and they won’t, and we have checked with the Military and they don’t have a plane).

Side Note! 500 of the 6000 packages being prepared with be for the ladies in the 506th Combat Brigade.

Here is the Fox Channel 17 report from last night.

The Need:  HELP!!!  We need donations, we need letters of support and cards of encouragement.  We need people to pack and assemble the bags.  We need businesses, churches, schools, day cares and clubs to help sponsor the shipping and provide the donations.  We also need additional locations to become drop off points for donations to assist those who can’t get to Madison to donate.
