But, did you know there's actually something tangible and easy you can do to help give our troops a morale boost and provide them with a small comfort from home? Small comforts from home are the finer things that get these guys/gals through their time away.
Buy them coffee. That's right, coffee (at a real coffee shop). All you need to know is his/her first and last name, their email address and their pickup location/base name.
~ Go to the Green Beans Coffee site.
~ Choose your recipient's pick up location - if you're ordering for Michael, it's "Iraq - South Victory"
~ Choose your amount (the recipient automatically gets an additional 10% to what you purchase)
~ Consent to terms and click "order"
~ Fill in your information
~ Fill in the recipient information. For Michael - Michael Venning, firstname.lastname@example.org and Iraq - South Victory
~ Please write them a message. It means SO much to them. Even if you're only thanking them for their service, they appreciate it.
~ Fill in your payment information and submit your order.
The recipient will then get an email notifying them they have a gift card available at the coffee shop you chose as the pickup location.
That's it! Easy, right? Now, GO show your support. I know first hand that Michael would appreciate it!
