I’m sure that statement brings a picture to your mind… maybe a day on the playground years ago…. or the flag pole scene from the movie A Christmas Story.  No matter what memories it brings back, you know you can’t back down from the double dog dare, and the only thing more serious is the TRIPLE dog dare!

With that being said, we are starting a Double Dog Dare Challenge for Military Missions, Inc. We need to start raising money for Operation SEND Christmas. We know what you’re thinking. “It’s only August! Why so early?” Our list of deployed service members who need care packages is growing each and every day, but due to the sluggish economy, we are not receiving enough donations to keep up with the demand.

So here’s how the challenge works:

YOU begin by making any size donation to Military Missions, Inc. Then you issue a challenge to your friends to make a donation as well.  It’s that simple! You can challenge your facebook friends, email contacts, relatives, or anyone else who comes to mind. You can make a donation through Paypal on our donation page or by mailing a check to our office at 3650 Boston Rd., Suite 146, Lexington, Ky. 40514.

Last year Military Missions sent over 5,000 care packages to deployed troops. Many people believe our men and women are no longer deployed to the Middle East. However, we still have hundreds of names on our list and receive new names everyday.

We don’t ever want to turn someone away because we can’t afford to ship a package, so please accept our challenge and make a tax deductible donation. Any donation is helpful and VERY much appreciated. As always, we are extremely grateful for any and all support of our troops through Military Missions, Inc.

And remember, you don’t want us to bring out the dreaded TRIPLE dog dare! Donate today!
