A Treat from the Troops

This sweet thank you is from some of the troops that received our Operation Treat project—where six kids helped me make 100 treat bags for a deployed joint forces unit. I wish you could’ve seen the smile on my daughter Sofia’s face when she watched it. It was followed by a long, “awwwwwww.” I sent it to the other parents and I’m sharing with you too. Happy Halloween!

  1. Amazing gesture by some young generous individuals and yes, Happy Halloween and thank you to those special young men and women serving our country.

    • Thank you for your kinds words for our troops. It was such a lovely surprise that they went out of their way to make this for the kids. As for those kids—they felt so good doing this for our troops that they offered to help me again even before the packages arrived. So they were pretty excited to see this video. That’s a lot of happy to cram into one Halloween 🙂

  2. I love that they took the time and made that little video.I can not imagine how proud those kids were when they heard their names being yelled out. Please let them know how proud other people are for the great job they did.! — Dee

  3. That is so awesome!!!
    What a wonderful and personal thank you. Great job to Gina and Sophia and her friends for always thinking of others and finding the most unique ways to make them feel like they are a part of home.
