Happy 4th of July

I am starting to run low on donations so if you are able to donate it would be fantastic. You can donate online via paypal or send us a check in the mail. Once I get the 501 status for JHP I “should” be able to give you a reciept to make it tax deductible is what the lawyers told me. To date we have shipped out 103 boxes overaseas in just 2 months. The responses we have been getting from the troops has been amazing. It only inspires me to want to do more. I recieved two hand-written thank you notes in the mail today from contacts we recently shipped some boxes to. Here is what one of the cards said:

Thank you so much for the wonderful package. I heard about Muscle Milk, but never tried it until now. I really enjoyed the product. I shared the other items in the box with the rest of the Marines and they could not believe somebody would send items of such quality. All the Marines were very appreciative and wanted me to make sure to tell you thank you for them. So… Thank you from all the MACS-1 (FWD) Marines.

Things have been going great. I just recieved my first monthly shipment from 24 Hour Fitness yesterday and will be packing up more boxes tommorow and Monday. The paperwork for my 501 c 3 application is almost complete. It should be sent to the IRS for approval next week. My lawyers are hopeful they will expedite our application with the letter we included explaining why we “need” to.

I saw this wonderful video today and wanted to share it with you all. This gripping, patriotic film short is great to honor vets, remember the fallen and teach kids the price of their freedom. Wishing you all a safe and Happy Fourth of July. I will be working an extra long shift tommorow at the gym tommorow because I am covering a friend’s shift whose mom is visiting this weekend.
