Updated on November 2, 2021 – DVDs to the Troops is no longer active. They have suspended their operations.
Day 87 – This past Wednesday, I got myself to the post office and mailed off the DVDs that I collected for the troops in February. I collected 154 DVDs, with the majority of them coming from my very generous friend, Renee. Thank You Renee! This donation will make a very entertaining movie library for a military base, entertaining soldiers overseas.
I wasn’t sure how expensive this project would be, not knowing the cost of shipping. Thankfully, the United States Postal Service offers a very reasonable media shipping fee for military addresses. My three boxes only cost $30, total. The only extra paperwork I needed to fill out at the post office was a customs form. The only information I needed to fill out were my address, the address of the person I was sending the DVDs and the contents in the boxes. It was a very simple process.
So, if you have DVDs that you are looking to part with, consider sending them to the troops. You can contact DVDs to the Troops at email@example.com to find out where you can send your DVDs.
Tomorrow, getting creative with trash.
I had been sending dvds to the troops, but this afternoon, they came back “return to sender” with no explanation indicated on the form.
I logged onto Facebook, and there was a post regarding this program saying there was no longer a need for this program.
When I sent an email to the email I had previously been given to get APO addresses, the email came back undeliverable. I sent a second one- same thing.
So, I guess the update as we head into 2022 is that we can find our prior alternatives, like their library.
Thank you for the update. I knew it was only a matter of time. With all the streaming options, the DVD is becoming obsolete. It was a good program while it lasted. I’ll be sure to update my post. Thanks!
