BEANIE BABIES

We send a Beanie Baby or other small plush toy in every Deployed Troop Care Package.

WHY?

I think everyone has had the most fun with the Beanie Babies. They are decorating and playing with them. The shop kind of looks like a Beanie Baby zoo. Of course most of us are male so it’s not normal for this which makes it very unusual but fun to watch. Thanks again for the boost to morale from your show of support.”

In addition, we have heard from many service members that they give the Beanies to the local children, who in turn provide information on where IEDs are hidden. As one stated: “Not only are you putting smiles on our faces; you are saving our lives.”

I am one of the many Marines that you sent a Care Package. I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting us and for letting us know how much people support us back at home. I live with 17 Marines and Sailors in one room. Everyone got a package and everyone loved it especially the cookies and Beanie Babies. The cookies are excellent and the Beanie Babies help us out a lot with the local kids. We give them candy and toys and they give us the location for IEDs. Once again, thank you for everything and for all the hard work that you put into the package.”
