“Operation Skyfall” is launching with the release of the latest James Bond film on Blu-ray and DVD on February 12th. MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are teaming up with Operation Gratitude to deliver 7,000 care packages to deployed troops.
Volunteers will put together the care packages at the Army National Guard armory in Van Nuys, CA on February 12th. Military families and war veterans will join civilians to make 7,000 packages which will contain deodorant, shaving cream, and other personal items as well as a DVD copy of Skyfall starring Daniel Craig as Bond, James Bond.
Commenting on the project, Operation Gratitude founder Carolyn Blashek stated: “Skyfall is the most popular Bond film ever made and an action-packed film like this can really boost morale with our troops overseas. Operation Gratitude has been supporting our servicemen and women for 10 years and this partnership was a great opportunity to provide some much needed entertainment along with toiletries and personal letters that our Military heroes greatly enjoy.”
