Clip for Troops

August 15, 2011

Do you clip coupons?  Do you ever clip ALL the coupons out of the Sunday paper?  Do you use them all?  What do you do with the expired ones?  Want to help some soldiers and their families who live overseas where food expenses are higher?  Lori Drake, whose blog is Warriors and Kin at the Pagan Newswire Collective, is collecting coupons to send to bases overseas.  All you need to do is cut out all the coupons (keeping the ones you will use of course), throw in your expired coupons, put them in an envelope and mail them to her.  She does the rest.  Below is an excerpt from the Facebook page that she set up for this:

“This is a charity/fundraiser of sorts that doesn’t require anyone to show up in person, give money they don’t have, donate labor their bodies can’t handle or even represent one locality or another. All this campaign takes is a few extra moments of each person’s time, doing something they may already do. It only costs a stamp or two and an envelope, and I (Lori Dake) pretty much do the rest. And by us sending over these coupons, it helps military families on a very tight budget, and we do so without a Bible or any strings attached. All they know is the batch came from a bunch of Pagan folks. That’s all. I’m not including Scripture, or spells, or incense (though they do have a bit of an embedded dragon’s blood scent to them haha). If they wish to thank us, and of course that would be nice, there’s always a return address included and a sticky note thanking them for their service and sacrifices.

If you’d like to help out, please mail your coupons to:

Lori Dake – PNC Military
PO Box 306
Chicago, IL 60690-0306
United States

Send only manufacturer coupons (not in-store promotions), and no older than two months expired. Overseas commissaries accept them up to six months expired, but they still need time to get there and dispersed. “

Spread the word!  Let’s send her as much as we can to help our troops!
