US Military Officer serving in
My guess is that my email will be unlike any that you receive. I'm on active duty currently stationed in Afghanistan.
I learned about Alternative Gifts International in an article on the Davidson College web site. I'm a 1987 Davidson grad, and I figured if the Chaplain's office have had a 16-year relationship with your organization -- it was more than good enough for me.
Several years ago my family started focusing on alternative gifts at Christmas -- so this was a natural fit.
Thankfully, there was a link to your web site in the article -- and I was able to click my way through all my Christmas gifts! And I felt great when I got done, knowing that I had played a small role in advancing several very important causes around the globe.
I am a firm believer that projects like the ones I was able to support will make the world a better place. And for a career military officer - that is ALWAYS a better thing.
Thank you for what you do, and I will be happy to spread the news about alternative gifts!
