This looks like a fun way to get involved in helping kids in Afghanistan. Some pilots are asking for donations of soccer balls that they can distribute from their helicopters to local children, which will hopefully improve relations between them and the locals. The link should take you to their blog, where you can get details about what kind of balls you can send, the address you can send them to, etc, etc. This operation will be in effect until December 2007, so y’all have plenty of time to get everything ready. J and I just sent off a box of stuffed animals to Iraq (hat tip to TftcCarrie), and it was a good experience for us both. This is a great opportunity to do something simple that could be helpful both to our troops as well as some kids who like to play soccer.
