Ramadan is here.  The new moon is out, signaling the start of the new lunar month.  It’s been a long time coming.

And with the arrival of Ramadan, comes the end of this round of IBOL, er, I mean, ABOL.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the help with ABOL this year.  It’s been awesome.  I owe you all some more photos, and soon.

What’s next?  Bundles move to Iraq via the US Postal System.  The folks in Afghanistan keep distributing them. And I keep sweating — it’s been 120+ during the day, and a mere 90+ at night.

I haven’t seen a bundle count for Afghanistan, but between the bundles, and the school supplies, and yes, the beanie babies — I would call this year a big, big success.

    I sent off a dozen or so boxes; hope they get there safely and are useufl.

    Very sorry to hear about the heat among other things.

    Thank you for all your efforts.

    Hi ABOL Guy! It’s good to hear you consider that the latest effort is a success. Thanks for organizing and blessings to the women of A. We’re having a heat wave in DFW so we can relate!

    Name that Band.

    Life here got crazy but I got 4 boxes off on the last day. It felt good to know how much they could help.

    I’m glad it was a success. Stay cool and safe.

    Managed to send off two boxes. Best wishes to our FETs and Afghani sisters!

    I just got a certificate for the 3 BOLs I sent a couple of months ago. Pretty fancy but surely not necessary. I think its time to send another(s). What’s the correct address now (Oct 2011) please. God bless.
