HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
March 17, 2010

My late wife, Marlene, heard about The Hugs Project and quickly immersed herself in creating HUGS neck coolers and other useful articles. She worked by herself in Tulsa, buying all the needed materials in bulk and every month or two, we would jointly pack and ship boxes to our valiant and dedicated troops overseas. Being a Vietnam Vet, I wanted to help and Marlene had incredible talents - so we made a good volunteer group!! We got addresses from Karen and occassionally received warm thank you notes from serviceman. One I got 2 weeks after her untimely death. Shortly thereafter I was able to give all the supplies Marlene had accumulated for future HUGS shipments, also had a garage sale and donated the funds to HUGS. It is an awesome group with tiny overhead and lots of dedicated volunteers.
