got 37 cents?

If you do, spend it here.

My real-life nephew and cherished blogson Robbie, aka Slaglerock at http://combatarms.mu.nu has a friend who will be deployed on Christmas Eve. He has challenged Robbie to get as many letters from the denizens of blogdom as possible, which he will in turn print out and hand carry to Iraq to be distributed between the holidays.

The last time we did this, during the summer months, we managed to get
320 letters which were also hand carried and distributed.

If you'd like to participate, we'd love to have you. Our goal is 500
letters, and we do have until Christmas Eve to accumulate them. I
believe that you have lots of readers who would participate, Rob, and being
the gold-digging, mercenary female that I am, I'm asking you for a
post. If you can't fit it in, that's fine. It doesn't hurt to ask.

A lot of people are forming various "alliances" to support the troops and I'm all for that. I've donated a goodly sum myself. But I really like this idea a lot.

How long does it take you to write a letter? When you sign it and send it, a trooper in the sand receives something he can hold in his hand and read over and over again. It's a voice from home that rings clearer and lasts longer than throwing $20 into a money-bucket. Take the time and effort to write a letter.

I know that I would appreciate that gesture of support if I were over there.

Thank you, Darling. I really appreciate it. Better yet, a whole lot of lonely guys and gals in a crappy place doing a dangerous job will appreciate it too.
