give a little, it means a lot

the purpose of this post is not to tell the story of Lee Miller (pictured above). although, if you aren't familiar with the name, I urge you to get acquainted with her . just go here and here and delve into one of the most fascinating life stories of the 20th century.

rather, in honor of veteran's day, I want to share with you an organization I recently discovered that literally brought tears to my eyes. founded in 2003 by an army veteran who wanted to help his son stationed in Iraq, Any Soldier is a non-profit organization that now relies on volunteers and donations to ensure that soldiers stationed at dangerous deployments far away can feel closer to home. the fantastic site easily walks you through the how, what and where of sending either a letter, a care package, or even a beanie baby.
