Drop and Give Me 20 For Your Mother!

Hey! Mother's Day is almost here. Time to show the woman that raised you that you appreciate her and are thankful that she put up with you, shepharded you through broken bones, chicken pox and and all the other little bumps in life.

Now you can help smooth out her bumps in life and support the troops at the same time. Show your mom she's your hero and pick up a gift certificate for a day at the spa by going to Spa Emergency.

If you haven't figured out what to buy your wife for putting up with you and the kids for so long, being the trooper she is through work, 10 years of football practice and ballet, or picking up your stinky socks that even a marine wouldn't touch after being out on an eight day mission, Spa Emergency is a great idea.

Already got her something? You can never give enough to your hero! Add a gift certificate to the Spa. Then you'll be HER hero!

Soldiers' Angels and Spa Emergency Team Up for Mother's Day and to Support Deployed U.S. Troops

By pampering mothers around the world, visitors not only give mom a gift, but also give a donation to Soldiers' Angels.

Pasadena, California - May 1, 2007 - Spa Emergency and Soldiers' Angels have teamed up to make Mother's Day special -- for moms around the world. Mothers receive Instant Gift Certificates for sumptuous spa services, and Soldiers' Angels receives a portion of each purchase, to help support the brave and dedicated members of the U.S. Armed Forces. This joint venture between online spa directory, Spa Emergency, and Soldiers' Angels, a nonprofit organization devoted to caring for servicemen and their families, originates from a heartfelt appreciation for the true heroes of the world -- moms and soldiers.

Soldiers' Angels was begun four years ago by a self-described "ordinary mother," Patti Bader, whose son, Brandon, was serving in Iraq. Brandon noticed that some soldiers didn't receive much support from home, so Patti contacted a few friends and started a card-writing campaign. As the adoption campaign grew, literally thousands of concerned civilians began helping out. Soldiers' Angels is still an all-volunteer operation that helps 115,000 men and women in uniform. And the kind of services it offers has expanded beyond cards and care packages.

"We take in anything and everything," says Debby Frerichs, Vice President of Donations for Soldiers' Angels. "Money, baby formula, clothes...." Recently, Frerichs says, Soldiers' Angels just gave away their one-thousandth laptop computer, with voice-operated software, to injured soldiers.

The "anything and everything" is where Spa Emergency comes in: just minutes after logging on to www.spaemergency.com/soldiers, and selecting a spa from over 900 across the United States, you can purchase a gift certificate for just about any amount you want to spend, and either print or email it out right at time of purchase. You can even choose to send the gift certificate at a later date -- just request to do so in the purchase form. Spa Emergency will donate a percentage of its profits to Soldiers' Angels.

If you're serving overseas, this is a great opportunity to buy a Mother's Day gift that's a little out of the ordinary. For the rest of us, a Spa Emergency gift certificate is a great way of honoring our men and women in uniform, who can't be here on that special day. Your mom would be proud! Soldiers' Angels is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the support of the brave men and women deployed in support of the War on Terror in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever we fly the flag of the United States of America.
