As promised, here are photographs of what we put together to send to our troops in Afghanistan.

Thank you to:

1. twalis, who originally suggested we do this.

2. TSN administrators, who allowed us to conduct this drive.

3. All those of you individuals who donated. The names of those who donated and what they contributed are in the original thread. However, here is the list of individual donors:

- Arcadies
- tgutc
- Theido
- mikeperry
- cdhumiston
- geezer
- slantman
- kentclark
- Johnny
- Grande

4. Captain Capsize, one of the vendor donors, who donated 20 vials of his Captain's Choice Bay Rum Aftershave, each individually packed in bubble wrap.

5. Lee from WSP/asharperrazor, the other vendor donor, who donated 9 new badger brushes.

And now to the pictures. The first picture contains everything all together. Then there are individual pictures of groups of items, like all the razors, etc.

Here is a picture of everything:


Here are the razors:


The blades:


Shaving creams and sticks:


Shaving brushes:


The WSP brush (1 of 9):


Captain's Choice Bay Rum Aftershaves (+ other aftershave donations):


Assorted soaps and skin care products:


We should feel good about ourselves for thinking of our warriors. We take our freedom and way of life for granted, yet these are only possible because we have a military to protect them.

Thinking of my own soldiering days when something like this would have been a mind-blowing care package! Awesome! I wish I had not overlooked this project when it was active.

Awesome job gentlemen. Our Heroes will have a good Christmas thanks to y'all.

Thank you to all who donated, to those that took the lead and to those that serve to protect our freedoms.

By next Christmas I will have some donations to put into the lot as well. Again, thanks from the husband of a sailor in the US Navy, I can tell you these things really mean a lot to our military personnel, you should be proud of what you have done for those that can't be with their family during this holiday season.

SUPER JOB Gents. YOU GUYs are our HEROES heroes... Wish we could see their faces (when they receive the stuff and after they shave)... Sorry I got tied up with life issues this time. I hope this will become a tradition here at The Shave Nook. I didn't see any other such thing on the other sites. You guys own the plank on this one. God Bless you guys and God Bless the TROOPS!!!!

I wish I'd known about this sooner.

Thelegalrazor is an awesome member. I have received a fantastic PIF from him, myself, when I first started.
