DONATIONS NEEDED!! -- Support the Troops Auction! #authors #bloggers

Hey guys! So, I'm hosting the Support the Troops Auction again this year. This will be our third event. Everything goes to support the USO where I volunteer :)

And we could use your help! All of ya! If you're an author, blogger, industry professional, crafter, consultant, etc and would like to DONATE AN ITEM for the auction I'd love to chat with ya! The USO is a non profit so I can provide you with info for tax deduction purposes as well.

SPREAD THE WORD! Can't donate? You can totally still help us out and spread the word about our donation request to authors/bloggers/others you think might be interested in donating an item or service. It's a huge help!

Four years ago we kicked off an auction to benefit the USO of North Carolina where I volunteer. Our center is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Including holidays and no matter the weather. We never close our doors.

What does our center do?

Our center provides services for active and retired military that are traveling through our area as well as to their families. Our center has a play area for children, a kitchen, snack area and seating, a lounge area for sleeping and a computer room. Guests are able to spend the night if flights are canceled or delayed, grab a bite to eat (all food and drink is free of charge), and relax a bit. We help with deployments and home comings and provide assistance for those traveling through.

We have an honor team that escorts fallen service members and their families when they're traveling through our airport. 

We also hold family events like Holidays in the Hanger (where Santa comes and festivities are provided), we help families who have found themselves at our local hospitals long term, and many other services that help make the lives our our military members a little easier. 

Last year over 500,000 people came through during their travels.

We're looking for all kinds of donations!
If you'd like to donate please fill out the form below.
