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