My company has started a coffee drive for troops deployed in Afghanistan
My nephew has deployed to Afghanistan. I've just started receiving e-mails from him and when I asked what him and the other guys over there needed right now he said "Coffee". I would have guessed socks, junk food or magazines, but if that's what they need then that's what I'm sending.
I'm employed in the defense/aerospace industry and our General Manager is an ex-Marine so he offered to cover the cost of shipping all the coffee I could collect/buy. I'm in contact with Don Francisco's coffee (Gavina), and they are considering a large donation as well (should be finalized next week). I created a web page for donations if anyone is inclined to help make a soldiers day.
I've never done the website thing before, so if you have any suggestions or ideas please feel free to post them!
Link to donation site added back in. (above) Things check out just fine. Go for it folks.
