There isn't a lot you can buy for five bucks anymore.
It gets you a gallon of gas, plus a splash extra in some places. Even a McDonalds "value" meal is over six bucks by the time you're finished; seven bucks or more in some places or depending on what you buy.
But five dollars will put a huge smile on a soldier's face over in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Meet Airborne Angel Cadets.
For those of us who have been in such places, we know the isolation. We know how long it takes for mail to get there. We know how cut off you seem to be from the world.
Nancy and her fellow angels help change that.
Airborne Angels collects the donated goods and stores them in a warehouse who donated space to them, which in turn has allowed more retailers and grocery stores and other businesses to increase the amount of goods they donate.
But those donations still have to be shipped. And that's where you can score a smile and the eternal gratitude from our nation's finest young men and women for as little as $5.
Every dollar collected goes towards purchasing and shipping costs, and with the holidays upon us, the donated goods are rolling in.
What's needed now are dollars to get the stuff transported to our troops.
You can donate with a credit or debit card by clicking on this link.
You can mail your donation to: Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, Texas 75011 USA
Five dollars will go a long ways. All the way to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Let's help the Angels help our troops.
