Blankets of Hope for Wounded Warriors

.

My friend Noelle of Jumpin Beans told me about this sewing program started by the Soldiers Angels, a volunteer-led, nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families, their motto: "May No Soldier Go Unloved."

Now I cannot sew at all, but if you can or if you know of someone who can, please see if there is anyway you can help support this incredible cause. The BLANKETS OF HOPE program offers Comfort and hope for recovery for our Wounded Heroes in Combat Support Hospitals.
Will you please make just ONE?


Guidelines can be found on the Soldiers Angels website


You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook.


On behalf of all the troops who serve and for those who have made the sacrifice of being wounded, let me THANK YOU very much for anything that you can do.

God Bless America!!!

That's awesome! I unfortunately am not a sewer either, but I hope to learn someday :)

I'll keep this in mind for when I happen to run across someone who sews!

I don't think your followers number is moving. It's still the same as to when I joined you. Anyway, I will pass this around needless to say I don't sew. Have a wonderful weekend, and see you on Monday.

What a wonderful program! My moms group is always looking for new outreach ideas. I can't sew either, but I could do something similar to what you did. Totally awesome, mama!

I wish I could sew, I'll have to tell the sewers at church. I know they do the baby blankets and other things.
