Operation Give Thanks

Interested in hosting a party and giving back to a good cause?  Have you heard of Operation Give Thanks?

Here is all the information for you to get the know this great charity:
Operation Give Thanks is a nation-wide fundraising campaign to help Operation Shower continue their mission to throw amazing baby showers for military families to ease the burden of deployment.

Operation Shower gives back to our military families through parties, so can YOU !
Operation Shower is asking people across the nation to host a party, big or small, between now and the end of the year to raise money for Operation Shower. What a wonderful way to express your gratitude and thanks at this special time of year — and have fun!

Their long-term goal is to reach every military base in the nation. Their short-term goal is to raise $50,000 through Operation Give Thanks to enable them to shower over 200 more moms-to-be ! That’s right, if you raise $250 for Operation Shower, that helps them to throw a full amazing baby shower with gifts for a military mom to be whose spouse is deployed!

If you decide to host a party, please email or and they will help guide you and provide more information!
