I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!  I'm sure everyone had a great time with their family and friends.   Lots of people traveled here and there.  FREE to do pretty much what they pleased.  However, how many people do you feel take for granted the freedom that we all have in this country?   I know I do sometimes, until I hear a story that makes me think, "Yeah, we are a lucky country".  It's not perfect by any means, but we have so much to be thankful.   Now, I am not writing to get into a debate over whether the Iraq War was wrong or right; or condemn or praise any political figures that made decisions over the years, and I'm not looking to solve the world's problems.   I just want to show my gratitude to our Troops for the sacrifices that they have made so that we can have the freedoms that so many of us take for granted.  

From now until June 4, 2009, AVON has again joined forces with the USO** to support our U.S. Armed Forces with USO2GO Kits.  Not only will each of our Troops receive a Kit, proceeds will go to the USO to help them continue providing Morale-boosting initiatives through programs and services, as they have done for 68 years.

Each kit is $10 and contains the following items: Skin So Soft Moisturizing Shower Gel, Skin So Soft Itch Relief, Moisture Therapy Lip Protection, On Duty 24hr Deodorant, and Moisture Therapy Intensive Hand Cream.  Each of these products will help our Troops who have to endure extreme heat and who need protection from biting bugs.

AVON Independent Sales Representatives all over the country, including myself, will be collecting funds to purchase these kits to be shipped to our Troops.  To some it may seem to be such a small token, but it reality, isn't it great to be thankful for the little things in life and not just the big things.

If you would like to support our Troops, please contact your AVON Representative*** today!

“Support the people who support you - the men and women of the United States Armed Forces!”
