My company is putting together care packages for our troops abroad. Let me know if anyone is interested in donating. I will use my PayPal account (firstname.lastname@example.org
) to collect donations then either buy stuff or donate 100% of the money. This is a perfect time for all of us to give to the troops. I have already pledged $20. Let me know if you send something to my paypal and make sure you mark it as a GIFT
so there is no transaction type fee.
Here are the details:
