As the air begins to take on the bite of fall and the leaves turn to gold and red here at home, our thoughts turn to childhood fun like legions of little ghosts and goblins hitting the streets to Trick or Treat.
This year over 15,000 American troops will spend Halloween in Iraq or Afghanistan, defending our freedoms. This year, let’s send them a piece of that fun-filled Halloween spirit. Sponsor a Halloween Care Package from Move America Forward to send a little bit of Halloween cheer to our troops over in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We wanted to bring a small bit of that celebration to our troops serving so far away. So starting in October, our packages will include yummy colorful candy corn as a reminder to our troops that even though they can’t be here to celebrate with their own kids, and raid their Halloween candy stash, they can still get a little treat from the folks back home who haven’t forgotten their service.
It’s the least we can do to help remind them of the spookiest holiday back home and let them join in on a little of that Halloween spirit of fun! Please send them your support and items they can’t get in Afghanistan.
