BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT artist KELLIE PICKLER is lifting the spirits of deployed female soldiers in AFGHANISTAN and KUWAIT.
While visiting the desert on multiple USO tours, PICKLER learned first-hand how tough it is to be a female overseas. When she learned about the USO’s monthly "Ladies Night," KELLIE put together special gift packages for the FEBRUARY event.
KELLIE sent hundreds of boxes to the ladies, filled with items such as NAIL POLISH, SLIPPERS, MANICURE KITS, CHOCOLATES, and "chick flicks." She then visited the ladies at the event via SKYPE to deliver a message of support.
"I am grateful to all of our servicemen and women for the sacrifices they make, but I have a special place in my heart for servicewomen. They are some brave, beautiful and dedicated women. That’s why I wanted to do something special just for them this VALENTINE’S DAY. While our servicewomen are spending this time away from their family and loved ones, I wanted them to be able to take a moment and pamper themselves," said PICKLER.
