I can attest to this! I sent a small box not much bigger than a shoe box to
my brother in Iraq and it cost close to $19.00. One of the things I sent him
was body lotion which he really appreciated. Between the temps of over 120
and the hard water they have for showering, he said their skin feels like
it's shriveling up so the lotion helps to temporarily re-hydrate their skin.

One of the things that stalls groups organizing this sort of thing is lack of
money for posage. Folks are glad to donate items, but its having / collecting
the money to actually get it in the mail that they run into problems.  (At
one point, Blue Star moms had over 1000 lbs worth packages waiting to get
sent - but no money for postage to get it to the guys.) 

Do we have specific names and addresses for the northern regional guys? Do we
want to do this on our own, or part of the Society group? Do we want to give
support to an organization (like Blue Star moms) that's already up and
running, but might need volunteers and or money, etc? Is this a Barony
project, or simply individuals in the Barony?

There's a lot of questions that need to get answered so we're all working in
the same direction....
