The small comforts that you and I enjoy on a daily basis are not the same comforts that injured military personnel enjoy in the VA hospitals or in the field. A simple thing like new music is sometimes not easily accessible to these wounded heroes.
The Red Cross is selling military comfort kits that included with the most needed items such as a phone card, robe, shower shoes, toiletries, calendar and an MP3 gift card. These items are the basic necessities to be comfortable and try to get their mind off the situation that they are in.
During the holiday season while you are searching for gifts for your loved ones, think about giving the gift of hope and joy. Giving a military comfort kit to a solider will lift their spirits and make their life a little bit easier during their troublesome times.
The cost of one military comfort kit is $50, two comfort kits are $100, which you get a free water bottle with the purchase of this item, and three kits are $150.
If you wish to give a gift to the American Red Cross, the Holiday Giving Campaign catalog can be found here.
