You've inspired me, and after some searching, I found this blog: http://oceanskykhaki.blogspot.com/ - which has details for sending packages to Australian troops. It seems postage is free for a certain box size, if it weighs under 2kg. I've bought a box, I'll post photos of goodies before I send it out.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to mention a great organization that I am a part of: Soldier's Angels (www.soldiersangels.org) Soldiers Angels is a no- profit organization dedicated to the support of our military (including veterans).

You can sign up to adopt a deployed soldier and send them letters and care packages. And, you can submit a soldier that you know to be adopted. This is really great for those soldiers who do not have any family support back home, or even for those that do that could just use extra support.

There is even knitting, crochet and blanket sewing teams that you can join, if you are talented that way!

As a former Army wife and now wife to a disabled veteran, I have seen first hand how important support is for our military overseas. Thank you to all of you that are already supporting or looking for ways to support your military members.

Thanks for the website Smiley I swear that I haven't been living under a rock, but that is the first time that I have heard of the site. Can't wait to put together a care package!

The VHS box idea is awesome, I never thought of that!
My closest friend just arrived in Iraq two weeks ago, and battling 125F+ heat, they can use all the comfort they can get.  Even for those soliders that are on well outfitted bases(by military standards)- my friend has to walk over a mile in the heat just to get to the dining area.  He said for that reason him and some of the other soliders are skipping meals, which is not good at all.  Easy to eat snacks they can keep in their bunks would be very appreciated.
Its a selfless loving thing you've done sending to soliders you have never met, I just wanted to thank you on behalf of someone else who has a loved one over there!

My husband just got back from a deployment and I'd always talk to the managers at walmart to see if they'd donate stuff and most of the time they did.

What they need most is mouth wash, tooth paste, deod, shampoo, wet ones/wipes.

My husband said the best snacks are the crackers in teh small bags and the packs that go in water.

This is great ~ and thanks to everyone who added a link!  My sons are in the Cub Scouts and we want the dens to do some sort of thank you for the troops.  You have given me such great ideas!  Thank you!  And Thank You to all of the military serving and all of those who have served and to their families.  I do not support the war - but you all have my complete support!

This is awesome!
I cried reading this... My husband is at Basic Training right now, and soon will be off to school for his specific job.  I may just be emotional because he is away.... but what you are doing, everyone who pitches in for those guys are just wonderful!! 

I am interested in personal swaps!
