NY based Gift Basket business to send gift baskets to as many troops stationed overseas during the holiday period as they can with your help and donations

Online PR News – 28-November-2009 – – Nothing like a taste of home for the troops who are serving overseas

November 27th 2009-- Dianne Weinberg spokesperson for www.gifts-flowers-giftbaskets.com is hoping their “Treats for Troops “program will deliver more than just sweet treats to local military personnel serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and away from their families during the upcoming holiday season.

Gifts-flowers-giftbaskets.com has joined forces with the Clinton Global Initiative to send gift baskets to the troops deployed overseas beginning next month.

We developed the idea for the program after being inspired by an interview with President Clinton, who through his Global Initiatives program made it a real possibility for individuals and small businesses such as ourselves to get involved one gift basket at a time Weinberg said. “We made a commitment to them and decided we liked the idea so much that we wanted to go further; so in addition to accepting donations we are also donating a percentage of all sales in November and December from our site.

Weinberg added that $ 2.50 from every personalized letter sold during November and December including” Letters from Santa, First names, Baby names, Horoscopes and Numerology scrolls that will go directly to the program.

“We’re not making a penny on the gift baskets we send through this program. They are all being sent at cost. It’s just nice to do something nice for the troops, especially as the holidays come around and we are all home and enjoying our friends and family.”

“I think people like to help out. This just gives them a chance to do that.” Weinberg said

“The most important thing is for the troops overseas to have some sense of appreciation from the people from their hometowns,” Weinberg said. “As minimal as this may be, they still want to know that they are being remembered especially during the holiday season.

”This is not a new concept, “she added.”One of our staff added when he was in Vietnam and in the bush, they dropped packages out of helicopters and planes. There were just crumbs, but boy were they appreciated. “

Finally we are also also looking for Frisbees and Phone cards for the troops and would appreciate any companies who could assist with this. The Frisbees could be branded with your company info.
