Tuesday of the First Week of Advent

Surprising others this Christmas...

Return to the Advent calendar.

While we are all warm and snuggly around a family fireplace, men and women are serving our country in the war-torn Middle East.  

BustedHalo is asking their readers to send phone cards to soldiers this year so they can call their loved ones at home on Christmas.

There are two different ways that you can send phone cards to troops:

  1. If there is a soldier that you know, and you have their full name and address:
    • You can order a card through AAFES. AAFES is the Army Air Force Exchange Services, basically a store on base that also has an online catalogue. Their link is: https://thor.aafes.com/scs/default.aspx.
    • You can also send a card through a non-profit organization. (Military branches have lists of associated organizations, as do VA hospitals and groups that support military families.)
  2. The second option is to send a phone card through the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Operation Uplink: http://www.operationuplink.org/.
Today’s Prize is: Sirius T-shirt + Sirius Swag — Combination of various items (subject to availability) — Sirius pens, paperweights, key chains and mouse pads.
This day’s contest is over. The winner was: Frank P. of Bristol, CT

If you enter our drawing using the form below, your entry will be added to the drawing for whatever prize is being offered on the calendar day it was received.

To win today’s prize: Give us your name and email address along with the email address of one friend you’d like to introduce to BustedHalo.com® using the form below by 3 a.m. EST tonight.

(We will, in turn, send them one email asking them to register for our Busted Halo® weekly email updates. We do not SPAM people nor do we share our email lists with any third parties. Read contest rules here.)
