Treats for the troops February 6, 2008

Exploring some links on pages that I read, I found a great blog called World o’ Jeff. Jeff relayed a lovely story about the cookies that his mother baked for troops in the Gulf War. The story so inspired me that I thought “Hey, I could do that.” Thank the cookie goddesses for google, because I found that someone has that idea already organized. Treat The Troops has sent over 877,000 cookies to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. What a wonderful idea, says I. I’m going to jump on this cookie bandwagon and become a “crumb” too.

Never underestimate the power of a cookie. Let’s hope with 2009, there won’t be a need to send these cookies overseas anymore.
