Looking for a way to make this upcoming Independence Day more meaningful? Consider offering your support to the Any Soldier charity. There are many ways that you can do this. You can give of your time as well as your resources to show your gratitude to the men and women who faithfully serve our country. Here’s how you can donate your car, money and time to helping our military through the Any Soldier website.
Send a Letter
You can send a letter to a variety of soldiers including marines, airmen, sailors and coast gaurdsmen through anysoldier.com. This webpage has a contact list full of the addresses where you can send your letters and they will be received by servicemen and women who rarely or never get mail. Sending letters of appreciation and encouragement is an incredible way to lift the spirits of our soldiers. It can also be a special experience for you and/or your family as you go beyond yourself in thinking of the needs of others and remembering the importance of their sacrifice.
Make a Care Package
Creating a care package for a soldier is also a terrific way to show love and gratitude towards someone who might be feeling very lonely while they are deployed. Again, you can use the addresses provided by the website and create your own package. The website also provides instructions on how to put together the perfect military package and includes tips for sending it out.
Money and Car Donations
If you’re feeling a bit more generous, then you can also donate financially to the Any Soldier website. You can do this with a credit card, check, money order or car donation. Your money goes to maintaining the webpage and generating contacts for Any Soldier to use. It also goes towards improving delivery methods and making care package items easily accessible to online supporters.
Whatever method you choose to do, you will be making a difference in the life of a soldier. The words from your letter or the thoughtful items in your care package; all of these can lift a heavy heart. They will be reminded why they chose to serve our country and why they love America. Though you may or may not ever hear back from them, you can rest assured that they will be forever grateful that someone was thinking of them on the day we celebrate our independence.
