Michigan Christmas tree growers are donating 1,100 real Christmas trees in an effort to help military families celebrate the upcoming holiday. The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation in cooperation with FedEx and the Michigan Christmas Tree Association announce a Trees for Troops program that will provide farmgrown Christmas trees to more than 16,000 troops and their families. The program expects to deliver its 100,000th Christmas tree this season since the program’s inception in 2005.

FedEx will pick up 300 of the 1,100 trees donated by Michigan growers at 10:00 am on November 29 at Dutchman Tree Farms, located at 9689 W. Walker Rd., Manton, MI 49663. These trees will become part of the more than 16,000 donated fresh Christmas trees for the Trees for Troops effort. The Michigan-grown trees loaded at Dutchman Tree Farms are destined for Fort Hood.

The Trees for Troops program will first collect, and then deliver the fresh Christmas trees to families at 63 military bases across America. The Trees for Troops program provides a way for all Americans to show their appreciation for the sacrifices that U.S. troops and their families are making this holiday season.

Members of the National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA) and at least 20 state or regional Christmas Tree Associations are donating the Christmas trees. FedEx is providing free shipping. The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation – based in Chesterfield, Mo, is a not-for-profit foundation that advances the Christmas spirit for children, families and the environment. Trees for Troops is just one of its projects.

For more details, go to www.ChristmasSpiritFoundation.org. Consumers that are interested in supporting the Trees for Troops program and the Christmas Spirit Foundation can make a contribution on-line at: www.ChirstmasSpiritFoundation.org.

Many Michigan Choose & Cut Christmas tree growers will also be accepting contributions for the Christmas Spirit Foundation and to support Trees for Troops at their farms throughout the Christmas season.

That is right! I am announcing a Twitter Christmas Bake Off for all our Twitter followers.

Our Facebook Fans have a weekly opportunity to win a free Table-top Christmas tree or Christmas wreath by posting on the Dutchman Fan Page, but our Twitter followers had nothing... until now!
This idea was not all mine. Kathy H. (@truckinwife) helped me come up with it. I tweeted how I had just made pumpkin bread and olive oil bread. Kathy responded and then we came up with the idea for a Twitter Bake Off. Following Jessa Irene's blog and tweets (@HolidayHaven) also helped this idea come to life.
So, enough of my babble. Let's get down to the rules on how you could win a free Fraser Fir Table-top Christmas Tree or a Fraser Fir Christmas wreath:

  1. You have to be following @DutchmnTreeFrms on Twitter

  2. You must suggest a great Christmas baking recipe that you have tried

  3. Drawings will be November 16, 23 and 30 and December 7 and 14

  4. You must use the hashtag #TwitterChristmasBakeOff
The drawings will be on Wednesday. If you win you will receive a congratulatory e-mail from me (socialmedia@dutchmantreefarms.com). I will need you to send my your choice of tree or wreath and a shipping address (No PO Boxes... and has to be within the continental USA).
Good Luck!
