HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
February 9, 2011

The Hugs Project brightened the lives of over 6300 soldiers last year with care packages filled with "Hugs" cooling ties, food, candy, socks, personal hygiene items, books, games, powdered drink mixes, coffee, mini-binoculars, solar powered LED flashlights, handknitted neck pillows, etc. When needs arose for foot powder or socks, the troops contacted us for help! We have also been able to supply them with over 120 sewing machines and 2 wheelchairs for them to present to local citizens in their "Hearts and Minds" program which is meant to change opinions of Americans in the hearts and minds of the Middle Eastern citizens.

I have received several thank you notes from our troops saying how grateful they are for what they have received. It makes their day to know they are thought of, especially by people they do not even know.

Ways to make it better...

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

Raise more money so even more of our troops could receive care packages!

MY ROLE:
Board Member & Wrote for grants to help fund this undertaking.
