Ok folks it's the giving season and I was thinking it might be a good idea to extend Firefly and Serenity to those who really need it. There are a lot of soldiers in Iraq and from conversations with a few they are really short on entertainment and honestly they really need it... so buy a copy of Firefly or Serenity and send it here

*giggle* It was a bit difficult, especially as I kept searching while answering the busy phone here.
Thank you MsA!

This is awesome! Thank you so much for posting it and giving us another way to share Firefly/Serenity.

The mayor and his wife here where I live have a grandson who is serving in Iraq and they have made contacts and we've all contributed stuff ( me= FF/S of course, plus some cookies and treats )
to send to his troop plus some others.
If you don't have a local way to do this, the link MsA has given us is a perfect way to do a good thing for a soldier!

Well we talked to a bunch on our way home from Dragon con and it seems their unit had been watching the same season one of the office for the last 4 months. It was all they had... so we gave them Firefly and Serentity to take with them and I thought we should try and see how many copies we can get out there...if they are going to watch something endlessly it should at least be something worth watching again and again:)

Absolutely! I'm sending a copy this payday.
Plus, Firefly helped me thru a hard time in my life and I expect it would do the same for them.

Filly that's fine..any little bit helps. Plus if you think about how many troops are over there... if we even make half of them browncoats we could easily have enough support for Serenity 2:)

Hi, everyone! I'm currently serving in Iraq from the 615th Contingency Response Group (USAF) and I wanna thank you all for your generosity and that we (the troops) appreciate your support and every single act of kindness such as this.

btw, I saw the 1st dvd of the tv series a few days ago for the 1st time during my down time and I automagically got hooked after the first episode =)

Hey, just saw this so make sure to mark your DVD's.

"As you might know, on occasion the Iraqi's have no problem supplying movie DVD's at a fraction of the cost back home. What you are not aware of is the fact that those movies are stolen off the bases and sold back to the soldiers. I recommend that when you supply that information to those who send packages and to the soldiers/Marines whom apply for items to be sent in, that they mark the movies to prevent unscrupulous individuals from benefiting from the unwary." Colonel, USMC.
We strongly suggest that if you send any CDs or DVDs, use a permanent magic marker and simply put "AnySoldier.com" on both the cover and CD/DVD. It won't take long before these won't be a target anymore... -Marty

I just found this info, I have a box of Christmas cards that will now be going to Walter Reed.

"Walter Reed Medical Center, where many injured soldiers are treated, doesn't accept packages marked "To Any Wounded Soldier."

The medical center, however, does accept generic Christmas cards for injured soldiers at:

Recovering American Soldier

c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center

6900 Georgia Ave. NW

Washington, DC 20307-5001"

By the way, I just got an Amazon email notification that there's a big sci-fi sale right now. All Buffy, Angel and Firefly TV DVDs are on sale (Firefly's back down to $19.99). So if you're planning on sending DVDs to someone like the soldier ideas mentioned in this thread, or if you're at least buying yourself another loaner set, now looks like a good time to make that purchase!
