**Just bringing this back to the top for those who might have missed it**
Most of you know that Lubbock Marine Parents is a non-profit organization and that we collect donations in order to send out care packs to our troops serving overseas. We have had such great response from Lubbock and the surrounding area. Our goal for our Christmas care packs was 200 and we wound up sending over 250. Our goal for our Valentine mail out is 50 care packs. It would not surprise me a bit if we surpassed that.
For some reason, it never occurred to me that people outside the Lubbock area might want to help or even that it might be easier for people here in town to donate via our blog. Thanks to a suggestion from Pamela at Atlas Shrugs we now have a Paypal account. Our EIN number is listed on the donation form for tax purposes.
**Edit: Pamela has already given us our first Paypal donation (and a really nice one too)!! Thank you SO much!
