This just in. We recieved this great tip and wanted to pass it on:
I have lately been sending my old magazines to overseas soldiers through www.booksforsoldiers.com, where there are a lot of requests for various magazines. The good-cause nature helps me get over my pack-rat tendency.
Books For Soldiers is a very interesting organization. It is "a soldier support site that ships books, DVDs and supplies to deployed soldiers and soldiers in VA hospitals, via our large volunteer network." Because of the internet, what started as writing letters to soldiers has taken on a whole new meaning, as soldiers can post their requests on the BFS message boards and you find a soldier who wants what you have to give (though many request "anything").
Here you go, yet another way to clear out your house and feel good about it. (Thanks, Ladygoat!) MGR
