Postage isn't free, Folks

From the director herself:

We are getting flooded with basic requests from Afghanistan and we have packages ready to go,
unfortunately donations are low and our bill is high, PLEASE consider spreading the word, sending money and praying we all can do what is needed to help this heroes.

Here is a note we got this am.

I wanted to write and thank you for your continued support of my team. Also, I wanted to share a quick story with you about the impact your organization makes in our lives.
A couple of weeks ago, I was at Combat Outpost Zerok in the province of Paktika. Those Soldiers have been there for 7 months and live in the most dire conditions. They do not have running water, fresh vegetables are rare, their gym is home-made and triples up as a sleeping area and dining hall. An old roommate of mine had not showered for 2.5 months when I saw him. The only bit of luxury at that COP has the Soldiers' Angels logo on it. The care packages you send are the only deviation from the Meals-Ready-to-Eat and one hot meal a day they get... and everyone there was so appreciative of it.
All the care packages your team sends to Bagram are forwarded to the field for my guys. Even if you may not hear back, please know you are making their day go by that much easier. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.
