Fun, Hands-on “March to a Million” Project: We Need Volunteers!

LOGO-MARCH-TO-A-MILLION2Schools! Scout Troops! Youth Groups! Everyone else! Want to help us out with a special “March to a Million” project? Want to earn Community Service Hours? Read on!

Go to this link:
Print one or more pages, grab a paper cutter or a pair of scissors, cut out each of the “mini care packages” printed on the page and send them to us for our #March2aMill celebration! Even if you can’t be with us in Van Nuys on December 7, you’ll be able to participate in the festivities from afar!200Packages2

Each 8.5″ x 11″ page has 200 little images on it (see right for a tiny version of what the page looks like). When you cut up an entire page, please put the little boxes into a small ziploc bag and label the bag: “200 boxes.”

IMPORTANT: If you cut up more than one page, you may put up to 1,000 boxes into one baggie, but please clearly indicate the total number of boxes in each baggie you send to us.

And be sure to include your name and address so we can properly thank you for your help!

Want to earn Community Service Hours? We will provide One Hour of Community Service Credit for every five pages cut up (1000 mini care packages). If you want a Community Service Certificate, please include a self-Save the Date imageaddressed stamped envelope along with the cut out boxes you send and we will mail the Certificate to you.

Send the cut out boxes to us at this address:

M2M Special Project
P.O. Box 3334
Chatsworth, CA 91313

Again: Please be sure to label the baggie(s) with the total number of cut out  “mini care packages” inside each baggie.

Wondering what we’ll be doing with these little boxes? That’s a surprise — you’ll have to wait until our big event on December 7 to find out!

Thank you for your help and support!

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
