Xmas Messages For Our Troops

We've just taken a booking for an xmas party for the wives of some of our british soldiers in afghanistan.

They're going to leave video messages for their husbands and the DVDs will be shipped out there. We really looking forward to it and it's in a good cause!

I have one son getting ready to come back from Iraq (7th or 8th tour of duty) and another son getting reading to head for Afghanistan (his first tour of duty). Yes, the videos will be much welcomed by the soldiers. Awesome assignment!

Being in the Coast Guard (it's the military believe it or not) I've been wanting to film something like this for a while now. I would be more then happy to do a project like this pro-bono.
You came across a great opportunity....

Tony...what an awesome gig! I, too, would absolutely do this pro bono.

Maybe this could be something you could do every few months, instead of just around Christmas time.

We're actually charging for the booking but feeling a bit guilty about it now! We're not charging very much though.

"Maybe this could be something you could do every few months, instead of just around Christmas time."

Hadn't thought of that, what a good idea!
