A Cup of Coffee for a Soldier

....a cup of joe for a Joe.

I heard this on the radio today, and thought I'd pass it on.

Green Beans Coffee has a link on their website to accept donations to buy a cup of coffee for a solider overseas. Each $2 will get a soldier a cup of joe at one of their locations, and it looks like there are about six in the Middle East area. So, a taste of home is welcome! You can write a note of appreciation/support to the soldier to accompany the receipt of the coffee.

For all they do for us, freedom, and democracy, how about buying a cup of joe for a Joe? And feel free to pass on this information :)

This information is not from a chain letter. I heard about it on CBS880 radio (NYC), and verified the website.

Very neat idea! I also love the Girl Scouts campaign where you can buy boxes of Girl Scouts cookies for soldiers overseas. Thanks for the idea!

I thought of you this weekend... we went to a wedding and most of the bride's decor, including her wedding cake topper, came from GoodWill! She's so clever, just like you, at reusing vintage items. I posted pictures. YOu can probably pick out the vintage peices in them-- like milk glass vases and a little bird figurine.
