Dear Dr Stella’s FUNtastic Dental,
On behalf of OPERATION GRATITUDE and the U.S. troops deployed overseas who will benefit from your kindness, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and support of our Halloween Candy Drive.
Your generous support and donation of 151 lbs of candy and 25+ letters will enable us to send 100,000 ‘chock-full’ care packages during 2010 – 2011, including the shipment of our 600,000th Care Package on December 11, 2010! The hundreds of letters we have received from the troops (which can be read in the Mail Call section of our website) attest to the positive and lasting impact of your kindness. As General David H. Petraeus, Commanding, wrote in response to receiving his own care package from Operation Gratitude:

Enclosed are several of our new Operation Gratitude ’10 Easy Ways to Help’ cards. Please help us spread our word by sharing them with your friends and family!
Operation Gratitude has been granted non-profit status under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Your contribution to this organization is fully deductible in accordance with applicable law for federal income tax purposes as no goods or services were provided in exchange.
Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and wonderful patriotic spirit. You play an integral role in putting smiles on the faces of tens of thousands of our troops, and in military parlance, your support is a “force multiplier” to the ultimate mission. The brave members of the U.S. Military who receive your generosity will remember your kindness forever. And we will always be appreciative of your generosity and encouragement ofOperation Gratitude.
