I'm looking forward to packing boxes of goodies to send to Jon. If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late to join Team Caring and Sharing.
You can look at my previous posts or go to Baking GALS.
Why not get some friends together for a holiday cookie swap and make double batches to send overseas. Or just tell your friends about Baking GALS and if they don't want to make enough to fill their own boxes, maybe each of them will bake something that you can pack all together. If you're a teacher, perhaps you can have your kids make cards to include.
If you don't have time to bake there are plenty of other ways to fill a box!
Here are some suggestions:
personal supplies- always nice- soap, toothbrushes, chapstick, deodorant, toothbrushes, foot powder, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes
instant coffee bags (like tea bags), hot cocoa packets, flavored powdered drink mixes
hard candy, gum, mints
granola bars, packaged cookies
books, magazines, postcards, greeting cards they can send home
hand/foot warmers (little packets that are air activated)
