Dark Chocolate, soldiers and Iraq...

My daughter's best friend's mom is stationed in Iraq. I asked him if there was anything I could send along to her when her family sends care packages. He asked her via IM or email, I'm not sure which, and she said, CHOCOLATE!

The temperatures are cooler in Iraq now, so chocolate doesn't melt. In the summer, people don't even bother to send chocolate. So, after Christmas, I will be sending bags of dark chocolate and also some brownies and chocolate chip cookies, because she asked for those, as well.

Ask around, I'm sure someone you know, knows someone serving in Iraq. Random acts of kindness, in the form of chocolate bars, are very good Karma.

Nice Idea. Should also put up the mailing address for sending packages in general to people stationed abroad in Iraq and Afgahanistan --or however you spell it.

I don't have a general email address for people stationed abroad. If anyone reading has one, feel free to post it in the comments here.

What a wonderful idea! I'm hardly risking my life in Iraq but I am far away from everyone I know & it really is the little things that bring comfort.
