While driving around town today I spotted an ad on the back of a Coors Light beer truck for what might be the greatest charity ever: Pizzas 4 Patriots.
The folks at Pizzas 4 Patriots understand that when you are overseas, nothing quite makes you feel at home as drinking a cold beer and eating a greasy pizza. This phenomenon explains why Americans instinctively flock to Pizza Hut locations when traveling in Europe (plus, Pizza Hut offers free refills).
Apparently our military men and women serving in Iraq face a chronic shortage of pizza. To remedy this, the folks at Pizzas 4 Patriots have chartered a DHL cargo plane and are trying to fill it with pizzas and beers that they hope to deliver to our military men and women in Iraq before the 4th of July.*
If you can’t have a backyard cookout to celebrate the 4th of July, the next best thing is a cold beer and a greasy pizza.
Check out Pizzas4Patriots Providing pizza for our troops overseas! to see how you can help. The website even plays “I’m Proud To Be An American” in the background. Nice.
*The Pizzas 4 Patriots website does not mention shipping beer overseas, however the ad on the back of the beer truck did.
