    Thumbs up Send a soldier in Iraq a gift!

    Most of you have probably seen the T-Shirts I sell on my site, and most of you probably have seen that Donut Aficionado is in Iraq with his Army MP Battalion. I recently sent DA a "Terrorist Hunter" shirt as a small 'thank you' for the work he is doing in Iraq, and the work he does when at home as a police officer. The people in his unit liked the shirt, so I sent another. I was thinking that, to help me send a lot more shirts over there without going broke, some people might be interested in sending one as a gift to be distributed by DA.

    For a $10 donation, I'll send a T-shirt, your personal message (optional of course) on a card, and I'll pay for shipping and other expenses.

    I'm of course losing money (in case anyone thinks I would actually try to make money like this), but the response I got from these guys has really made me want to do this. If anyone can help out, your generosity would be appreciated!

    Here's the link for the donations -

    And here are some photos from the guys with the shirts -



    I made these photos links to save the dial up people

    Any suggestions or other ideas are welcome, post here or send me a PM. If you have any problems with the site, let me know that as well. There should be a space for a personal message you want to send the soldiers when you check out with Paypal - if that doesn't work, pop me a PM or an email. Thanks everyone!

    When I sober up, I'll spend some moolah. What can I say I am in a giving mood but I want one too

    To get a shirt shipped inside the US, you can go to the DOF store

    http://www.defendourfreedom.com/store.html

    I forgot to mention, if anyone knows a person in the military with an APO/FPO address, you can email me at defender@defendourfreedom.com and I'll route a shirt you donate to them if you provide me with the name and address.

    So far I have 3 shirts donated to send over tomorrow

    $10 gets you more photos like this one, and a happy soldier in a real shitty place. What more could you ask for?

    Lucky for me I have that taken care of.....

    Hey everyone...the defend our freedom website has really put a smile on the face of a lot of the troops. They finally feel the sypport of the folks back home. I will distribute the shirts as fairly as possible. The priority going to the lowest ranking. When I get enough for a big photo of as many troops wearing the shirt as possible I'll make sure its posted. I love the ammount of support we are getting, the misson here seems so thankless at the moment eveb though we all know how important it really is.

    THANK YOU ALL! You are all angels in my book
    Insert witty comment and disclaimer here.

    Absolutely! This will be an ongoing operation as long as I have a contact in Iraq, or as long as people know a soldier's address who is deployed to a combat area. I appreciate all the support!

    I like your idea, think it's great, and definitely want to help. While I don't want to sound cheap, let me get the holiday over and done with, okay? Keep up the good work, Virgin!

    Thanks Stokerress and everyone else who has donated, I've heard from several soldiers and Marines requesting shirts and they really appreciate it!
