Generosity Overload

March 2, 2009 by Tim

Just a friendly reminder, we’re starting a new charity initiative with Digital Overload this year, which we’re calling Generosity Overload.

For 2009 we’ve chosen to support our troops still overseas, and will be
collecting items that they need/want, and we’re excited to announce
that ThinkGeek
has signed on to participate. In particular we will be sending items to
Ted Arnold and SrA Janna P. Wiseman who have signed up on behalf of
their units. We’re asking attendees to contribute any of the following
items:

  • Hygiene products of all kinds
  • Bug spray
  • Extra socks
  • Blankets
  • Dried Snacks (like trail mix)
  • DVDs
  • Sheets for Twin beds
  • Video or Board Games
  • Headsets with microphones (so the soldiers can call home)
  • CD-Rs and CD-RWs
  • Energy Drinks (or drink mixes)
  • Over-the-counter cold meds (Vicks Sinex would be great) and multi-vitamins
  • Anything anti-bacterial
  • Easy-Mac,  Pringles, Ritz crackers and Cheese spread
  • Cards and letters
  • Pre-prepared foods

We
ask that you bring your contribution with you to the event, and that
all food and personal items be new, and unopened in their original
packaging. Second-hand DVDs and Video Games should be fine. Any
attendee that contributes an item will receive a raffle ticket for a
prize drawing during the event.

If you aren’t attending Digital Overload, but would still like to contribute a bit to the cause, you can make a PayPal donation on or before Wednesday, and we’ll go out and purchase items that the troops need.
