“We went to see the ocean, and that is probably the best place of all our coast to go to. If you go by water, you may experience what it is to leave and to approach these shores; you may see the stormy petrel by the way, thalassodroma, running over the sea, and if the weather is but a little thick, may lose sight of the land in mid-passage. I do not know where there is another beach in the Atlantic States, attached to the mainland, so long, and at the same time so straight, and completely uninterrupted by creeks or coves or fresh-water rivers and marshes.”

~ Henry David Thoreau on Cape Cod

*** Causing a stir:

Through my colleague Gregg Shields in Dallas comes this appeal for assistance that I think we all can support. Tom Clementson is a senior advisor for public affairs at the ISAF Joint Command in Afghanistan. Like any red-blooded American, he likes his coffee. But due to the remote location, Tom and his colleagues find it hard to find powdered creamer for their coffee. He reports:

It's less of a necessity than a true comfort item but any flavored creamers of the powdered variety. We have the basics here but unlike most of the larger U.S. bases, our NATO base is very Euro. Again, thanks so much. Address is below.

V/R,

Tom

Tom Clementson

APO AE 09320

So, I am asking my fellow “nedworkers” to to grab some non-dairy powdered coffee creamer and package it for shipment to Tom at the above address.

If you don't have any coffee creamer handy, because you are like me and take your Navy coffee straight, then Tom says: “The team will be thrilled and even if people just want to drop a postcard to The IJC Public Affairs Team. We'd be very happy with that.”

Please pass this on to your fellow communication professionals.

Ned Lundquist, ABC

Publisher – JOTW

*** Mike Zimet requests clarification:

Hey Ned…

Our troops deserve the best, even comfort items. But it's not clear from his email — is Gregg looking only for “flavored” creamers or will “regular” do? Let me know — I'll run to Costco and pick up some.

Sipping a midnight cup of powdered creamer and powdered sweetener in my powdered coffee made with powdered water,**

Mike.

**wait a minute, if you want to reconstitute powdered water, what do you mix it with? (best answer wins a bottle of reconstituted powdered water)

(First of all, it's for Tom and his folks…not Gregg who passed the message to me. In turn, I forwarded your comment to Tom on Facebook for clarification.)

Mike: Here’s Tom’s reply:

Flavored is best Ned. We've been able to squeeze AAFES to get some regular in here. As to the other question…I'd suggest mixing it with liquid air.

*** From my “running mate” Mike Smith:

Have sent mine!

MPS

*** From Shannon Reilly:

Awesome idea to send out this address. I'll be making a good shipment!!!

Shannon

*** From Susan Burnell, APR:

Great cause, Ned, and an easy one to support. A box of powdered creamer

packets will be on its way this week (Sam's Club sells boxes of 1000).

Cheers,

Susan

Ned

*** From Angela Lapre:

Hi Ned –

This is great, thank you. Assuming Tom will get loads of creamer from this email :), are there any other items he and his team would also like?

Many thanks,

Angela

*** From Ken O’Quinn:

Ned,

Can you clarify the address. It appears to need elaboration before it will

look valid to a postal worker, but maybe I am missing something.

Tom Clementson

(That will work. APO means “Army Post Office.”)

*** From Cinda Adams Gaskin:

Hi Ned:

I'm happy to send some non-dairy creamer to our troops. There's a Dollar Store in my neighborhood that has the flavored varieties (for a dollar!).

I'll jump right on this detail. It's the least I can do.

Thanks,

Cinda Adams Gaskin

*** From Elizabeth Corse:

Ned, can they not take liquid creamer in sealed, individual serve packets?

Also, would flavored coffee grounds be of any use?

Elizabeth Corse

*** A JOTW “Thank You” and a follow-up challenge

Thank you for your overwhelming response to our appeal to the JOTW network. We have helped some service men and women in Afghanistan, and that's a wonderful thing. The power of this network has inspired a follow-up challenge and appeal.

– Here's the response I received from Tom Clementson:

Ned,

This thing has really gone viral. I'm more than confident we'll have coffee creamer for a good while but it had me thinking that we might be able to make a real difference beyond comfort items for my team here. We're currently working with U.K. Soldiers here to help an orphange here in Kabul. I'd like to see where they're short in terms of school supplies and toys. Is this an effort that you would help us support? In the grand scheme it just seems petty to ask for something so small for comfort when we can really make an impact on young lives.

Tom

– Ned replies:

I like the idea…So will my network. Any instructions on what you need, want, how it should be packed, marked, etc?

Tom answers:

Ned,

Talked to Sgt. Jonny Howells (U.K. Army) about what they need. Right now the team is supporting two orphanages and a school here in Kabul and the best we can do for these kids is pull together clothing, school supplies and toys. A few specifics would include: Soccer balls and simple toys, legal pads / note pads, pens, rulers, crayons – coloring books, baby clothes, t-shirts for kids up to 14yrs…The Brits have done a great job supporting local kids here in Kabul and all in their off time. A few of us newly arrived from the U.S. side decided to join the effort since we're all mostly over the 1776 / 1812 business.

Anyway, really appreciate any of the help you might be able to provide in getting the word out. We don't require a lot from any one person but a little from each goes a long way in helping some kids in Kabul.

We'll try to get you some pictures next time we're out on a visit.

Tom

– Ned's challenge to the JOTW network:

Please see if you can support this appeal. Send the above requested supplies to:

Tom Clementson

KAIA Attn: IJC PAO

APO AE 09320

*** From Jim Brooks:

Ned-

My personal experience with something like this (my niece is a Peace Corps worker in Africa), the requestor should make a very specific request as to what they want. “Toys” is too generic. Would toy guns be welcomed? (They weren't in Africa). Likewise, school supplies should be specific. The more specific the better.

Not sure of the legalities but the could partner with a non profit like Rotary International but CASH works best. Supplies are bought directly from in the country and the benefits multiply throughout the country. This is most evident in Haiti (I've done work with Rotary International there).

Jim

(Ned replies: Agreed. We're dealing with some military folks supporting an orphanage/school on their own, not a big NGO effort. So, if it was you over there, what would you want to get so that you could bring it to the school?)

*** From Laura Lueder:

Ned,

Do you know if the clothes and toys need to be new, or can they be

gently used hand-me-downs from our kids?

Laura Lueder

– Tom replies:

Ned,

Gently used is fine. At this point the kids will appreciate the

functionality more than the look. Very good question though.

V/R,

Tom Clementson

*** From Rebecca Mikkelsen, APR:

Good Morning Ned:

Thank you for this opportunity to help our service men and women in

Afghanistan. I'm mailing a box of flavored coffee creamer today and will

follow up with school supplies.

Ned, I admire how you help so many people and make such a difference in so

many lives.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Mikkelsen

*** From Greg Friedmann:

Hi Ed,

Great effort & use of the JOTW network! One thing we learned in sponsoring a child in Haiti is that things like coloring books are best kept to very simple topics– not inadvertently showing a lot of Western opulence that Kabul kids might resent.

i.e., Barbie comics with all of her cars, clothes, mansions, etc.

Just a thought.

Cheers,

Greg Friedmann

Ned,

We're in! My 9 year-old daughter and her friends have taken this on as a special project. What a wonderful opportunity to have our leaders of tomorrow experience first-hand how just a little bit of time and effort can go a long way in helping others.

We're putting together some care packages and shipping them off to Mr. Tom next week!

Semper Fi!
