Quick update for where we stand and what we need to make 2016 another successful year for Authors Supporting Our Troops
We just broke the 500 signed book mark for the year… obviously we’re running well behind the numbers from the last two years. Hopefully we can pick up the author-signed book donations coming in for the rest of the year. If you’re an author and have a few author friends (and who doesn’t?) let them know about the program and the Facebook group where all of the incoming and outgoing books are pictured.
What are we looking for besides author-signed books?
I have about a dozen boxes waiting to be shipped but I need actual soldiers to send them to. Any branch of the military. The only real criteria: they need to be in remote areas where videogames, laptops and easy access to entertainment isn’t so easy. I want to reach the units that need something to take their mind off of where they are and what they’re doing. I’m looking for a personal connection, so I get these addresses from YOU. Not through a company or the USO. I want to know a soldier we touched is family/friends with someone who cares. As long as the soldier is willing to accept two boxes (about 100 books) and pass them out to his fellow soldier, we’re happy.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to drop me a line at: armandrosamilia (at) gmail (dot) com
I never publish my address online so if you want the shipping address to me please email me asap!
