I cut this from the first post...
"I would like to receive all items by April 1st to be sure he gets them promptly. Also, if you don't have the time to pick up any items I could also accept cash donations(on my honor, all cash will be used to purchase items and cover shipping). Check ,MO or paypal works for me."

Yeah I am going to just send Abu Ronin some money over Paypal .. that way he can know what NEEDS to be purchased and use that money to fill in the blanks of what else Husky and his fellow troops can use.

Whoops, guess I skimmed over that part of the first post. Was going to run to Sam's Club and get some jerky, but I don't think I could get it there by the 1st, so PP it is!

I will be accepting items from any members that wish to participate and will pack them together to be shipped to Husky and his fellow servicemen/woman in Afghanistan. If you wish to contribute, please send me a PM for my address to ship your items. I would like to receive all items by April 1st to be sure he gets them promptly. Also, if you don't have the time to pick up any items I could also accept cash donations(on my honor, all cash will be used to purchase items and cover shipping).

[FONT=Verdana]This is the least we can do to show these men and women how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice, so let's come together like only HP can and show our brother our appreciation![/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Here is a list of items the have been mentioned as needed-[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-cigars[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-beef jerky[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-magazines(no porn, LOL)[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]-moist towelettes[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-shave cream/razors[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-also, feel free to throw in any letters/cards/messages. I'm sure husky would love to hear from ya'![/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]thanks to all in advance and let's get this done HP style!![/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Sincerely, Abu Ronin[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]PS: this is being done with the full support of the HP admin./staff (thanks to Sambooka and Dunkel for the help!) if that makes folks feel better about sending stuff to someone you don't really know.[/FONT]

When I worked in the shipping industry we used to give huge discounts on shipping overseas (when we were not supposed to).

Im glad you're doing this.

Ya know? I was totally thinkin' about some pics but never bothered for some reason. Could have been because I was still packing the box 20 mins before the PO closed.LOL
As for what is in the box, well, lets just say Billy will soon have enough cigars to smoke Osama straight outta his cave and enough toiletries to bathe and shave every taliban fighter in Kandahar province! Not to mention plenty O' dip, magazines, lotion, hand sanitizer, beef/turkey jerky,xbox games, ect! Or let me put it this way. When he sees the box he's gonna wonder who the hell sent him a TV! All in all this was a huge success. And thanks again to everyone one who stepped up!

I ended up sending a package on my own, so as to save postage. I want to thank abu ronin for arranging and making this happen. I also want to thank all the folks that sent stuff or made donations to the cause. Regardless of what folks believe about the politics of war, it's heart warming to see folks remembering our troops. I'm sure Husky and his crew will enjoy this generous package when they get it.
