HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
October 28, 2012

The Hugs Project mails between 50-100 boxes each week full of lifesaving cooling ties (called Hugs) which can reduce body core temps by 7+ degrees, hygiene supplies, canned food and beef jerky. We've sent out 1.4 million hugs, 200,000 "kisses” (cooling helmet liners) and more than 462 TONS of care package items in the 8 years since The Hugs Project began. At Christmas we send out 5,000 Christmas boxes. In addition to the usual items, each box will contain some homemade goodies. We believe that every American serving in harm's way deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.
