Soldiers' Angels needs your help for the 2012 Holiday Season!
This winter, nearly 100,000 U.S. military personnel will be serving in Afghanistan, in combat environments or in support of combat operations. Many will be have been on multiple deployments--spending yet another holiday away from the loving arms of family and friends. We want them to know that they are remembered, that we are thinking of them during the winter Holiday Season, and that we are grateful for their service. Since we can't all wrap our arms around them in person to show how much we love and appreciate them, Soldiers' Angels needs your help to make sure each one of America's heroes is Wrapped in Holiday Spirit.
Wrapped in Holiday Spirit & Blankets of Belief
Please help us make sure that our deployed Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines this Holiday Season know: "We haven't forgotten you, we support you, and we believe in you!"
Handmade "Blankets of Belief" form the heart of the Soldiers’ Angels Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care packages for the 2012 Holiday Season. These special Blankets are designed to tell America's service men and women, "We believe in you." When deployed service members receive a Blanket of Belief, they know that somebody back home remembers them, that somebody labored over a handmade blanket with love and belief in them. Along with the handmade Blanket, each Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care package includes a collection of yummy snacks, socks, and a holiday card with a personal note of thanks and support.

...I am part of [an] Air Control Squadron deployed to Iraq. I would like to thank your organization for the care package I received on Thanksgiving Day here in Iraq. The contents were very thoughtful and useful, and I greatly appreciated it. I would also like to thank the young ladies of Brownie Troop 547 in Buxton, Maine for their Christmas card.
Being away from our families and loved ones at this time of year is a definite hardship and this package has helped deal with the stresses of deployed life. Thank you again and God Bless you. - Captain A.B.
"To those that have taken their time to prepare the packages for soldier's here in Iraq: Thank you so much for the kind Christmas thoughts. Please see the attached. Happy holidays!! - MSG Hyer
