“BFPO Smiles” is a heartfelt initiative dedicated to crafting care packages that go beyond necessities, focusing on spreading joy and uplifting the spirits of our British Army. These thoughtfully curated packages are designed to bring smiles to the faces of our servicemen and servicewomen, reminding them of the support and appreciation from their home front. Here’s a guide to creating care packages that aim to elicit smiles in the face of duty.
Whimsical Treats and Sweets
Include whimsical treats and sweets that are sure to bring a smile. From playful candies to novelty chocolates, these items add a touch of joy to snack time. Consider including treats with colorful packaging or unique shapes to make the experience even more delightful.
Humorous and Inspirational Notes
Encourage friends, family, and well-wishers to include humorous or inspirational notes in the care package. Laughter and positive messages can be powerful mood boosters, creating moments of joy amidst the challenges of military life.
Fun and Games
Pack small games and activities that provide entertainment and amusement. Whether it’s puzzles, playing cards, or travel-sized board games, these items offer a lighthearted escape during downtime, fostering a sense of joy and camaraderie.
Bring a touch of celebration to military deployments by including festive decorations. Streamers, balloons, or small banners can transform spaces into cheerful environments, especially during special occasions. Celebrating milestones enhances the sense of joy and accomplishment.
Comedic Reading Materials
Include books or magazines with a comedic or light-hearted tone. Humorous reading materials provide a welcome break from routine and contribute to the overall well-being of our troops by lifting their spirits.
Personalized Fun Facts
Add personalized fun facts about the individual or their unit to the care package. Learning interesting and amusing details about themselves can bring a smile and create a sense of connection to the sender and their community.
