PINK Bloggers UNITE! Call for PINK cookies for US TROOPS!

Happy PINK SATURDAY bloggers UNITE with me in my CHARITY effort to raise 50 bloggers who will volunteer to bake 2 dozen cookies and send them to US TROOPS abroad in time for Veteran's DAY! Visit Cans For Cookies US Troops to learn more about this admirable effort. Local girl scout  troops, high schools, and college campuses have joined to help support the troops. Will you?

Cans for Cookies US Troops was started this JULY by me to honor my son, Lance Corporal Hranek, US Marine stationed in North Marja Afghanistan, my two nephews serving in the Army overseas, one having earned a Purple Heart, and all the other brave men and women defending our homeland and our freedom.

Please email me here with your name, address, how many cookies you will bake and I will send you the name of a soldier or other US TROOPS person to whom your package may be addressed. If you have a troop member you would like to add to the mailing roster, please email me here with the details. I need full name, rank, stationed APO address and which armed force he/she is serving with. You may also email pictures or links to their units.

HOPING your hearts open with PINK sugar cookies to fill our cans with cookies, filling their hearts with homemade love!

Two Marines serving our country!

  1. Happy Pink Saturday. We need to honor our military any way we can. Love all your pink references too.

  2. First of all, what a proud momma you must be. I salute you...and I salute your son. I know with the anti-war sentiment that is so pevasive in society nowadays, our troops don't really get the respect or honor they deserve. That is a crime!!! I thank your son for his service to our country...and I thank you as his momma, because you are sacrificing too.

    He is a very handsome young man!!!

    Anyhow, this is something I want to get involved in, so I will be definitely be checking out those other links.
