With the holiday season quickly approaching us, I wanted to take a moment to share with everyone this email I received from my husband who is currently deployed:
Just reading that some of them aren't getting mail is heartbreaking :(
The backstory to this is that I'm in the process of creating a Christmas box for my husband and his Marines. Initially, I was told 12 Marines. So in my haste, I immediately went out to buy the supplies:
- 12 stockings (which will be personalized with their names)
- miscellaneous treats and goodies
But in the email, there are now 20 Marines total - I'm now short 8.
This is where I'm asking all of you for help. Please help me cover the cost of the last 8 by clicking on the PayPal button below to donate.
(edit: Nov. 21 - link is now disabled. Thank you so much for contributing to the holiday care packages for these Marines. Follow WhiteRabbitVinyl on FB for updates!)
Because y'all are so awesome when it comes to getting together for a cause, every dollar donation you make, you will be entered into a raffle to be randomly selected and receive ANY one item from my shop. This includes sale items, home goods, homecoming decals, free customization, pillow sets, etc. ANY one item.
With every $25 tier we pass, I will choose another person at random to receive an item from WRV ($1 - $25, one winner; $26 - $50, two winners; e.g.). All donors will receive a 20% off coupon for future purchases AND a sneak peak email for our upcoming BFxSBSxCM sales.
I will be accepting donations up until this Wednesday, November 20th. Really late notice, I know. I'm hoping to have the care packages completed by Monday the latest. If you've sent boxes overseas before, you will understand the transit time. Given the holiday season, I want to ensure that these Marines receive their stockings in time.
I'm so thankful for the outpouring love and support that all of you have given over the years. I know that I've surrounded myself with the most beautiful souls out there and together, we can make these 20 Marines have a great holiday season.
Y'all are so awesome. Thank you so much for reading this far. And if you're not in a position to donate (which is totally okay!), pretty please consider sharing this blog!
