Portland Send A Thank You For A Noble Cause - Veteran's Day

Fraser, Colorado, USA
I write a lot about Portland Real Estate, but considering today's Veteran's Day I thought I'd depart from my normal subject matter.

If you're wondering how you can help our service men and women, think about sending a noble Christmas tree to say thank you to the troops and their families this Christmas.

For several years, Christmas tree growers had been providing free trees for charitable purposes. In the 1990s, some organized efforts started through which trees were given to National Guard units and other military personnel who were deployed in peacekeeping efforts in Kosovo and other regions of the world. In early 2005, the National Christmas Tree Association expanded the program.

To-date, the Trees for Troops program has exceeded expectations and continues to grow with the generous support from many involved.

For more information, including ideas to have others join in on this effort and on how to get started, visit www.tweetup4troops.org or the Trees for Troops website.
