So how many care packages should you send?
As many as you wish. If you want to send a few, that's fine. If you only want to send one, that's also fine.
It's your decision.
This is not about competing.
It's about showing some support and care for our diggers.
If you're worried about cost, then stop worrying now.
Again, it's free to post. You'll probably get sick of reading that, and we may get sick of reminding you, but sod it - we all love free stuff, and this really is free.
Besides, as you've seen in previous posts, there are ways to keep costs down. If you set yourself a goal of spending a couple of extra dollars only each week or fortnight when you shop, you'll just build up a stash in the cupboard that you can pick and choose from when you're ready to post.
And don't all post at once!
If I'm sending one this week, Kae's got another in two weeks' time, Sandi in comments posted last week, then those will go to three of our guys in Afghanistan.
It's not about money, it's about care and support.
As my parents told me innumerable times, it's the thought that counts, and even one package can make a difference to someone's time out of Australia and away from loved ones.
