July Charity of the Month - The Desert Angel

The Desert Angel

This month, in honor of the Fourth of July, I thought I would support a Charity that's main mission is to help out the troops serving and sacrificing for the Freedoms we will be celebrating:  The Desert Angel.

Desert Angel is a 100% volunteer organization
and wholly dependent on donations.  Their mission is to collect, pack, and mail needed items to our troops.  They also like to include words of encouragemnt as well as items for the soldiers to pass on to the kids and people of the land they are on.  In their own words they simply explain it as follows:

We show our Troops they are not forgotten in deeds, not just words. Changing our world, one box at a time ~  Making a difference!   
The Desert Angels

They complete this mission by mailing Miracle Boxes.  The boxes contain a variety of items, including socks, pocket foods, letters from home and "a whole lot of love".  Also in each Miracle Box we add a "Prayer Cloth" or "Pocket Flag" reminding our Troops, we are praying for them.

Sharing the Miracle Boxes

Please take a moment to check out the What you can do to help page.  There are lots of options available from simply sending money to packing your own box.

Each month I will donate $1 for the first 50 new followers to my blog to the current Charity of the Month.  You can follow in any way that you choose, simply pick an optionIf you already follow one way, feel free to add another:

The Desert Angel's mission is simply to spread joy and thanks to our deserving service men and women.  Let's see if we can join together to help them out this month!

  1. I sent a Christmas card to a soldier serving one year and I felt like that was a great thing to do. Simple but effective. This looks awesome - I love the idea of sending out care packages.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. This does sound like a great charity. I've never heard of it before, but I'm definitely going to look into some of the things they do. Thanks for sharing it.

    As always, you have great charity ideas! This past week I sent some items via a friend who sends items to troops in Afghanistan. Thanks for sharing and linking up!
