How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 225,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2017?

1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff, we strive to maximize the use of donations. We are a 501(c)(3) charity, so your gifts are tax deductible. We accept checks to Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011. You can donate via credit card through our Click and Pledge account.

2) Donate Goods - Our all-volunteer charity is based in the Dallas area, but receives product donations from across the USA for care packages for our Soldiers and Troops overseas. We kindly request that you contact us at support@airborneangelcadets.com before sending any care package goods.

Phone cards arriving overseas!

Here's the response from one of our Airborne Angel Cadet phone card recipients overseas:

"Well, it took some time before I could get to the phone center but I did it tonight. I got to the phone center around 8 pm and there were about 30 folks in there waiting in line to use the phone. I borrowed a Santa hat from my friend Mark and we walked in. He had the camera and I had that hat with a stack of phone cards.



I interrupted everyone and told them that you sent me some phone cards and if they wanted one, to raise their hands. Everyone raised their hands. It was a huge hit. I gave one out to everyone and after I was done, I still had a few more so I gave them each another one.

I still have four more envelopes in my possession and I will give them out the same way but on different days and different times so that I can increase the chance of giving it out to different people. One person made the comment "Wow, you just made a whole bunch of new friends!". Yup, we sure did...you and me both! lol.

... I'm always at work at different times of the day. I know that the phone center is always busy so just about any time I walk in there, I can expect to see a bunch of different people in there. I think we've stumbled on something interesting here. Girl Scout Cookies work...and phone cards work! Cool.
