I want to help the troops out...I need advice
    #3436788 - 12/02/04 12:29 PM (12 years, 6 days ago)

I want to send some care packages/gifts to American troops in Iraq. Does anybody know any of the following:

1. What I should send? I want to send practical things that will be appreciated.
2. Who do I contact to find out what I should send and where I should send it to?

Any ideas would be helpful. I wanted to help out at least ten soldiers or so. I am willing to spend about 200-300$.

Here's one organisation I found. I can't vouch for their legitimacy, though...

I remember being asked this question when I was in grade school in England and I replied that if I was there I would like something to remind me of home and conkers were the thing of the time so I suggested sending conkers.

But now I think philosophical material may be better.
Then again, maybe conkers and beer-making kits.

(For the English amongst them)

I reckon porn and booze. That's what my partner's best friend always used to ask for.
What about phone credits? and razors.

no
but seriously
nothing says "we're behind you" like a nice big bag of aids, and the beauty is, you buy it for ten of them and then those ten can pass it on. It's like your giving and giving.

I was in Iraq last year so I can tell you one of the most appreciated things to find in a care package is cigarettes. After that, baby wipes. Best if you can find the ones in the plastic packages that are about 1/2" thick. Not the ones in the big blue box. Small packages of baby wipes are better because the plastic box type tends to break easily in your rucsack. I'd say next on the list would be beef jerky and Maxim or Stuff magazines. Hope this helps.

I'd say send them a copy of the Geneva Convention. Underline the part about agressive war being illegal.

Send flea collars, im serious. Fleas are so bad over there that the men get so much flea poison in their body from bites that they develop a sickness from it. Its pretty sad.
