Beauty Blogger Launches My Beautiful Troops

When troops come back from the field, creature comforts like scented soaps and lotions go a long way toward making them feel appreciated

San Diego, CA, December 08, 2007 --( Organic beauty blogger launches “My beautiful troops” campaign.

After a long day at work many of us enjoy a nice, long shower, perhaps even indulging in a hot bath filled with aromatic bubbles. Imagine being out in the field for weeks at a time, cramped in a small tank with aroma of quite a different kind. Local beauty blogger and perfumer Andrea Kane has started a campaign to bring a little beauty into the lives of our troops overseas with My Beautiful Troops.

“My husband is my bath product reviewer for my blog and when he left for Iraq, I think he became a little home-sick for the relaxing product,” said Mrs. Kane, a Navy veteran herself. “So in passing, in an email to von Natur, an organic beauty company based in Oregon, I mentioned that some of the guys would really love some soap and things. According to my husband, when the package arrived, the contents were gone within hours.”

Thus begins My Beautiful Troops. “I have always told my husband that he is my beautiful, strong man. The men and women who are in harm’s way have left their families, some because they were ordered, others because they want to do their part in keeping us safe. They are all beautiful and strong and anything I can do to bring some comforts of home into their day is just a small part compared to what they do.”

If you want to help My Beautiful Troops, these are items needed to send overseas:

• Shaving cream

• Room sprays/air fresheners
• Mineral makeup
• Cotton underwear /T-shirts/socks (brown or black, all sizes, for men & women)
