Q: A female family member, partner, or friend is serving overseas. Does she qualify to receive a package?
A: As long as she is active duty or a reservist in the U.S. armed forces in any service (contractors are ineligible) and receiving hardship duty pay, she is eligible. Please have her email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with her name, service, rank, unit address, and the approximate number of ladies in her unit. We'd like to send them a little something too!
Q: What is in each Spa Swag care package?
A: Each Spa Swag bag will be different, depending on the items we have in stock that are donated by individuals, organizations, or companies. We aim to send spa swag bags that are balanced in terms of items and brands, and from companies that we know and trust. We do our best to select items that will appeal to a large spectrum of ages, skin types, and geography/climate considerations.
Q: U.S. Operations in the Middle East are winding down, so where do your Spa Swag bags go?
A: Although U.S. operations are winding down, there are still large numbers of warriors stationed in the Middle East - and elsewhere. Most of our packages are sent to ladies stationed in the Middle East, West Africa, and Asia. We have even sent boxes to ladies on U.S. Navy vessels in the Mediterranean and Pacific! Due to privacy and operational security reasons, we do not disclose the exact bases or units that receive packages.
Q: Why do you only send spa swag packages to women? Guys want products too!
A: Our mission is niche: to send spa swag to female service members, because we believe they need and deserve a little something extra while on deployment. We can't rule out sending high quality products to male service members in the future, but not at the moment.
Q: Are you a charity or a for-profit?
A: We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c) non-profit charitable organization - our Federal Employee Identification Number (EIN) is #47-3087759. If you make a donation, we will provide a tax deduction form upon receipt by email.
Q: Are you a partner with any other non-profits or organizations?
A: Yes - we are proudly affiliated with socially-responsible organizations such as LeanIn.Org and the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. For more information on how to partner, email us at email@example.com.
Q: Will you send packages to women serving in partner or allied countries or multinational organizations?
A: Maybe one day we will have a global operation and can do this. For now, we only send packages to women serving in the U.S. armed forces.
Q: I am a member of the Media. Whom do I contact for an interview or other press information?
A: Please email Lacey directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
