Ozark, MO (PRWEB) May 25, 2010
Memorial Day weekend we celebrate the lives of countless heroes who have sacrificed and given so that we are able to live our lives in freedom. “Our goal is to take it one step further than attending parades and barbeque's, we want to bring honor to those who have sacrificed and are surviving,” said Jim Palmer BuyDirectUSA.com Media Director.
BuyDirectUSA.com will give honor to those who are in VA hospitals by creating care packages of personal items they need while getting treatment. “We began this program last year after learning that many of the basic needs of our vets were not being met,” Palmer continued.
Veterans who are being treated do not have time to wait on bureaucrats in Washington to figure out how to help them. Last Year BuyDirectUSA.com did not meet its goal, but was able to help many veterans receive care packages consisting of: soap, soap holder, toothbrush holder, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors and shaving cream all in a plastic carrying case for easy storage. Female veterans also received care packages containing appropriate items.
While these items are available to purchase in the hospital, many veterans do not have the resources to purchase these essentials.
All products sent were 'Made in the USA' with the exception of the soap holder and toothbrush holder. While our goal was to provide 100% Made in the USA products to our Veterans, we came extremely close to the goal. Our hopes are to find a USA manufacturer who produces the soap & toothbrush holders this year.
Our goal is to raise $1000.00 by June 25, 2010 in order to help make care packages to give to Veterans who are being cared for in a VA Hospital.
BuyDirectUSA.com will donate 10% of all purchases that ship from May 25, 2010 through June 25th 2010 to reach this goal.
While we encourage our customers to purchase the patriotic items on our site, any purchase will qualify. Those who want to take a more proactive approach to helping our Veterans are encouraged to contact their local VA hospitals and treatment centers to see if they are in need of volunteers.
It is our goal to help as many veterans as possible. We are asking kind hearted Americans to help us reach or even exceed our goal.

BuyDirectUSA.com was created in 2004 specifically for US manufacturers to list their company information. This provides them with an opportunity to be located by retailers and consumers who are consciously seeking USA Made products. We hope that this helps to slow down the huge migration of American Jobs from making their way into foreign countries.
