Veterans Day - Baby Project




Good morning! It's nearly Veterans Day, and I will be away from my computer on that day, so...
I wanted to share this youtube with you. Please read the words, think, and pray for our troops who are in harms way.



Now, crafters, please go to the AFGHANISTAN BABY PROJECT and consider sending even a hat or 2. I love to make hats, and since LDS Humanitarian already gets tons of hats, I feel I need to make them to send to our soldiers to give out to the people where they are serving.


And before you email me to yell at me 'cos I am helping 'foreigners' and not American kids, I have read those critical emails over and over. I know there are kids in America who need help too, so if you would rather help them, please go here:

I just know what a boost it is to our soldiers to receive warm clothes, medical supplies, toys etc., to hand out where they are serving. Contrary to what you will hear from the 'popular media', we ARE helping the people in Iraq and Afghanistan in so many ways, but the media for some '60's throwback' reason, would rather make you think we are not.

Hug the ones you love, and pray for our troops today. Please.

I completely agree with you about the media. If they only showed how we are helping and how life for many have improved since we have been there it would help moral on the home front here. But the media won't show the good stuff!!

I have a bag of baby hats I haven't given away yet. I will be sending them to Afganistan instead!! thanks!

Amen! Thank you Bev! My son will be coming home from Iraq Dec. 24, after serving over there for 14 months. I am so excited! Thank you to everyone who prays for our soldiers.

Hi Bev, I found a really interesting blog of an U.S Air Force medical doctor who is deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan - he's on blogspot, the name of his blog is shazdoc (dot - blogspot). He was so very appreciative that someone had mailed him premie caps, and there's lots of pics, some of darling mittenless sockless boys, and there is an address in his latest entry where, if people wish, they can send gifts to that Afghani 19 year old whose husband so brutally maimed her. He also has lots of links to videos in Afghanistan, so anyway, since you've generously sent so many handmade items over there, I thought that his blogging might interest you - his SIX MONTHS IN KABUL is almost over with.
