a close up of what each Marine will receive!
Contents of gift boxes include personalized ornament with name, rank, and unit; travel toiletries, a Hot Wheel car (all different), instant coffee, and lots of sweets.
All wrapped up
Time of completion 0300 this morning!
We made our deadline of having these packages shipped out on Monday! Lots of tape, lots of writing, and so much coffee that my blood type is now hazelnut.
I felt so bad for creating a line behind us at the post office, but the clerk who helped us was an absolute pro and sweetheart! She got through all 11 boxes in under an hour (lol) and never once got upset when I kept pulling up another box for her to scan into the system. She even called me Mary Poppins because the boxes just kept coming 😆.
It still amazes me that a group of awesome people got together to help another group of people. People that we've never met. There's so much good to see in the world and it really does start with us. So before I let this post get away from me and I become an emotional mess (again), from this Marine wife trying to make her husband's time away from home (and his Marines under his care) a decent one, thank you SO much for everything. Not just the monetary contribution, but the emotional support, the sharing of this post...just EVERYTHING has meant so much.
The hard part is done and now we wait.
It's been a long couple of days here. So I'm going to recharge and get ready for BF x SBS x CM this weekend! Our random winner for the donation will be chosen later this week! As always, follow White Rabbit Vinyl on Facebook and Instagram for updates.
