I wanted to let everyone know that a friend of mine and I are really trying to get a charity going that would do something neat for the troops. Our project, called Operation Bag of Home, has at its heart a pretty simple concept.
1. Make pocket-sized bags. These can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, or whatever!
2. Fill the bags with small items that the troops need like wet ones, toothpaste, powdered beverages, etc.
3. Ship bags to troops
It seems easy, but we are having a hard time getting contributions of the "little things," and thus there isn't a lot of motivation (unfortunately) to make the bags.
If this project sounds like something you want to help, we'd love to have you. The more people join, the less any one person has to do.
