Another update on the troop project!!

One more update - prizes have been added to the list - check it out below. Another reminder of how it works - you send either items to be sent to the troops or checks, money orders or gift cards to be used to shop for the troops, I then put together shipments and send them out to servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. This link - - will take you to the Military Tribute page on Lori Foster's website where you will find a complete list of suggested items in the event you would like to do your own shopping for the troops. In return for your donation, your name will be entered in a raffle for some wonderful prizes. While I haven't decided on just how to put the prize packages together, the following list shows the incredible goodies that are being donated by various authors and others in the romance community:

Pretty amazing, huh? I will be updating this list as I receive additional donations. The raffle drawing will be held on October 31st. It is exciting every time we send shipments for the troops but the holiday boxes are especially fun to put together. Cards and letters from those who donate are welcome and hugely appreciated. It is incredibly heartwarming and rewarding. I am hopeful that if you have a blog you might mention this project and provide my information. Please let any authors that you're acquainted with know about this exciting project! There is absolutely nothing political about this project. It is simply a show of support for the men and women who serve our country. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. Thanks bunches,Laurie
