Do you have any books, DVDs, and CDs that you no longer need? Books for Soldiers is a non-profit group based in North Carolina that coordinates sending them to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Books For Soldiers’ Second Life site, BFS Airfield, is a classic World War II hangar and airfield. You can learn to fly a Second Life vintage plane on the airfield or you can go into the hangar, where you can waltz, tango, or slow dance on the dance floor, and sit at a bar facing a map of the world’s air routes in the 1930s.
Most importantly, however, if you wander outside to the other end of the airfield, you’ll find an anachronistically modern pavilion where you can learn how you can donate books to the troops. Second Life members can visit the BFS Airfield at slurl.com/secondlife/Nimbus/221/109/24. You can also join the Second Life Books For Soldiers group.
To learn more about how you can donate books, DVDs, and CDs to soldiers or make a tax deductible donation to Books For Soldiers, visit booksforsoldiers.com. You’ll find detailed instructions on how to mail these items to soldiers, forums, and a another website run by Books For Soldiers, collegeforsoldiers.com. You can also follow them on Facebook and MySpace.
