The Crown Royal Purple Bag Project is back for another year, but it needs our help to happen. Packages From Home is a non profit organization, whose mission is to send care and comfort packages to deployed American military heroes stationed on active duty around the world. Over the past few years they have teamed up with Crown Royal to fill their iconic purple bags with goodies for those serving in the military:

Crown Royal believes that it's not about what you have, but what you give and how you give it. That's why Crown Royal is honored to partner with Packages From Home to turn donated Crown Royal Bags into care packages for active American military heroes around the world. With your help, we have packed over 1 MILLION BAGS and counting.

Packages From Home’s primary purpose is to provide food, personal care, and recreational items to deployed American servicemen and women from every branch of the military, at no cost to them, while simultaneously supporting the needs of military working/service dogs and veterans who have returned home. The organization does all of this by relying mostly on the generosity of volunteers and donors, as the organization only employs one full-time and two part-time team members on its staff.

Getting involved with this project that helps millions of military members is as easy as virtually packing a Crown Royal bag with items right from your phone or computer.

Visit the Crown Royal website here, and simply select four items from the troop's list of most requested things, and they will be packed and sent free of charge. You can even add your own special message thanking these military members for all they do to protect our country.

It takes less than a minute, costs nothing, but makes all the difference to those defending our freedom.
