Apologies if this isn't viewed as the correct forum. My kids have decided to send goodie bags for those at the sharp end in the lands of sand - they saw me on the Help for Heroes site and asked me what it was all about. Long story short - What is useful/desireable to find in this sort of thing? So far the list from H4H contains: Sweets (Mints, Haribo, Jelly Babies, Chewing gum, etc) Magazines - FHM, Zoo, car & Bike mags Comics Crosswords/soduko toothpaste The kids want to put Christmas Cards in for the later ones. What else? Oxo cubes? Cook-in sauces (dry powders)? Alchol hand rub? - has been suggested on Rum Ration apparently. Chinagraph pens (? Not a clue but I'm sure I can find some) I'd appreciate the guidance. Please keep the feedback clean, in case my littles see this!
