Military Appreciation...Can you help?

Help us send some love and appreciation to our troops serving around the world to keep us free !!!




You can donate Mary Kay products to help comfort the troops who are sacrificing under less than ideal conditions around the world. Your Independent Mary Kay Consultant has teamed up with Soldiers' Angels to get our troops the skin protection and maintenance products they need. Help us show appreciation by donating today.


The Tax ID# for Soldiers' Angels (so you can claim the donation) is 20-0583415. The donated sets are being sent directly from your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant to Soldiers' Angels, who will then distribute it to the soldiers.


This is an excerpt from a letter sent to Soldiers’ Angels Network from their website


Thank You so much for the wonderful package. I was surprised to see Mary Kay products, which are my absolute favorite. Thank you so much for thinking of us and keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. We are so very honored by our Soldiers' Angels. Everything that you sent was wonderful. I don't think I have received such a wonderful care package before--with all really great necessities, and of course girl scout cookies, which are a great hit with all of our Soldiers.


You have brought a little extra sunshine to my day today. Being a female over here it is really hard to get the nice girly things like Mary Kay Products and be able to enjoy the little things in life that I know I take for granted when we are home. Thank you so much for all of your support through your gracious gift!


May God Bless and keep you may his face shine upon you today and everyday!


Thank You,

Mary Kay Cosmetics mission is


“To Enrich the Lives of Women”!


In keeping with our mission we, Independent Beauty Consultants, are starting a project to support our female troops. Specifically to enhance the lives of the women serving


The Ladies of Liberty team of Soldiers' Angels focuses on the needs of deployed female servicemembers. We assist with supplies for their unique health and hygiene needs, and help them experience a few pampering moments to rejuvenate themselves and remind them that they are ladies, even in the environment of war. We understand that women are instrumental in the current war, as in past conflicts, and we make special efforts to support and encourage them while demonstrating our great appreciation for their service.


Here's How You Can Help……




You can donate as many care packages as your heart dictates. Each Care Package will contain the following:


2 in 1 Shower Shave Gel


Hydrating Body Lotion


Mint Bliss Foot Cream


SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen


Facial Cleansing Cloths


Satin Hands Hand Cream.


You pay just $55.00 per package and we take care of everything else

All donations are tax deductible.  To Sponsor a Package

Contact  Mary Kay Consultant Kay Johnson–301-437-4341



If you can't donate the full $55, but would like to help, contact Kay or Bridget McGee at 410-960-2061 and we'll combine your donation with others to pay for a package.

Thanks so much for your help! Let's show some appreciation for our troops!

By the way, Kay is one of my Team in Training Teammates.  She is not only sponsoring this great program in support of our troops, she is raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma while training for the IRON GIRL triathlon!   She is an inspiration to me and to so many others!
