Happy Holidays, This is a guest post by GiftZip.com, they give money directly to the troops. If you are buying giftcards, consider buying from them.
“I am writing on behalf of GiftZip.com – we stumbled across The Deployment Diatribes blog and thought that your readers might be interested in our holiday initiative.
For every gift card purchased through GiftZip.com this Holiday, 50 cents will be donated to Give2TheTroops (Give2thetroops.org)! More information on this can be found here: http://giftzip.com/blog/2011/12/08/buy-a-gift-card-using-giftzip-com-this-holiday-50-cents-will-be-donated-to-us-troops/
Because we want funding to go directly to those who need it the most, our holiday marketing budget has been redistributed to solely support this cause. With that in mind, we are relying heavily upon word of mouth and people like yourself to get the word out about this campaign.
A little more:
Give2TheTroops (G2TT) is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt nonprofit non-political organization that sends care packages and letters to our deployed and wounded military troops in combat zones, and at home. For more information on all the good this organization does each day, visit Give2TheTroops.org.

This was made only with the help of tens of thousands of generous and patriotic friends in the U.S. and abroad.
