Eden Gives Back: Update: Support Our Troops and a POLL!

Ansley Ansley
Hey everyone, with the help of many members of the community, Eden Gives Back was able to raise: $415.98 in Eden Points Donations!!! Job well done and a big:



to everyone who contributed to this cause. Your donations are going to go a long way in giving the troops something to look forward to every month and we couldn't have done without you.

Now here comes the fun part! We get to select the magazines. The five magazines with the highest votes will be automatically included in the subscriptions purchased. If there is any room left over in the budget then the next highest rated will be included. I hope to be able to order at least 20 subscriptions total.

The magazines are going to be shipped directly from the magazine distributor to Soldiers' Angels, a non-profit organization located in Pasadena, California, that is in need of donated materials to build care packages for troops. I thought this would be an excellent way to keep their efforts going and to ensure a variety of posts and bases would receive these materials.

In addition to selecting the magazines from below, I would also like all of you to put your heads together to come up with a gift message to let our new friends at Soldiers' Angels why they will be receiving an influx of brand new, never before read magazines to ship directly to the troops. Please leave any ideas you may have below in the comment section! Again, thank you to everyone for all of your support and I look forward to updating you again on our progress!

And now for your consideration: (Please choose up to ten magazines.)

Before reading into this topic I assumed it was a care package of sex toys going to troops, then after that sexy magazines, talk about being in the wrong ballpark

DH is deployed right now and the guys would go ape over Popular Mechanics and tech/geek magazines.

They also would love Men's health because all there is to do is hit the gym on the boat so anything that will help them out in that arena is great.

As a vet, even though I have been out for some time, I would like to thank everyone for their contributions. I helped, but this is a lot to provide to the guys and gals overseas. They will really appreciate it, and the thought that went into it.

Again, Thank you to everyone who contributed, and especially to Stormy for pulling it all together.
