Gail and Conference Organizer Kathryn Wirkus Message from Gail Ridings, TallGrass Owner

The military has never been a significant part of my personal life - my Dad was in the Reserves but that was before I was born, and my grandfather was a WWI pilot, but I have no brothers or sisters or close friends who are soldiers. And yet, I am profoundly grateful to and proud of the men and women who serve our country, including those who did not have a choice like Vietnam vets.

When I think about the physical challenges, the separation from friends and family, the psychological stress, the multiple moves and adjustments, and being far from home during the holidays, I know that there is much we can do to ease the trauma.

That's why we've chosen to honor our military men and women with a series of events in celebration of TallGrass' 20th Anniversary on November 6. We started in September by participating in the Women Veterans of Colorado conference where our stylists and makeup artists gave mini-makeovers to attendees who were having photos taken for LinkedIn profiles and resumes. We met so many amazing women! Here I am with Kathryn F. Wirkus, Lt Col, USAF, (Ret), President and Co-founder of WVOC.

We're continuing the celebration with many more events planned to honor our soldiers, including an expanded goal for the holiday shipment of care packages to troops in Afghanistan. Our next shipment of at least 100 Soldier Boxes goes out on November 6. And, we invite you to help us make it happen.

Please read the details below and join us in saying "Thank you for your service."

Soldier Box Project

TallGrass Soldier Box Project
Next shipment: Nov 6

TallGrass staff and volunteers are spreading the word about the upcoming Soldier Box shipment and collecting personal care items for the packages which will be sent to troops in Afghanistan. This year's 7th annual holiday shipment is set to be assembled on November 6 at a packing day event taking place from 9 a.m. to noon at The Wild Game in Evergreen.

Your contributions of toiletries, paperback books, baseball caps, games, personal notes and holiday cards can be brought to TallGrass, or to any of the designated drop-off locations in Evergreen and Denver, or delivered to The Wild Game on packing day. As always, you are invited to purchase Aveda travel size items from us at our cost for donation to the project. And, contributions of cash to help cover shipping costs for the flat rate postal boxes are also welcome.

All the details, including a complete list of suggested items and drop-off locations, can be found on the TallGrass website.
