Instead of sending a simple card, LeAnn set out, with the help of friends and family members, to send each mom-to-be a "shower in a box."

As of May 2013, the Operation Shower team has, through the generous donations of individuals and corporations and through volunteer-power, hosted showers for over 1300 women and families. They have hosted 34 unit-wide showers on military bases and other locations across the country for families in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard.
And these aren't little cake and punch get togethers. Operation Shower goes "all out!" Check out their Facebook page to see the gorgeous themed baby showers they throw for the moms-to-be.
Think you'd like to help with the cause? There are numerous ways you can help Operation Shower.
- Spread the Word - just doing as I am and blogging about it or sharing an Operation Shower Facebook post
- Attend one of the upcoming showers - they are hosted all over the country. If one is going to be in your town, volunteer to help. Volunteers can help with decorations, set-up or clean-up
- Help secure party rentals for local showers
- Start a campaign at your child's school, your church or any other group
