HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
October 26, 2011

Being down range you don't get the luxuries that we take for granted here in America every day.
You don't have 24 hour access to stores or even showers for that matter, so something like a box of some baby wipes goes a long way to someone who is sleeping in a hole in the ground...literally!
We have guys that risk their lives doing convoys just to get care packages to others who are in harsher terrain! Those who receive these packages are always in great spirits!! When you're talking about being in a war zone and having all of the same problems you still have on the home front like bills, deaths in the family, divorce, stress in general that makes you just want to quit...that little piece of Heaven that's a HUGS Care Package is all someone needs to keep going! Keep it up HUGS! You're loved by more than you know!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is no other Project that I would recommend getting involved in more! HUGS has my full support and the volunteers are amazing people who work just as hard and at times even harder than we do down range! God bless you Karen and Ray! If it weren't for you, the moral would certainly lower down range than it is now! I wouldn't change a thing! In fact, everyone should visit the store at Crossroads mall and look what these amazing people have done!
