Have you heard about The HUGS Project?
Our mission is to place a "Hug" (cooling tie) around the neck of every American military member serving in the Middle East. This is a nationwide ongoing project begun in June 2004 in Edmond, OK by Karen and Ray Stark.
We want our troops to know that they are fully supported & that they are NOT forgotten. We’re a group of men, women, boys & girls who are dedicated to sewing & sending evaporative neck & head coolers to our troops in the "sandbox." Cooling ties are simple to make but the benefits are dramatic; they lower body core temperatures by 7+ degrees and have helped save lives.
Each week we send 50-100 CARE packages with items that are difficult for troops to get. We ship an additional 5,000 special Christmas boxes every year. Between June 2004 & the present we’ve sent over 1.4 MILLION “Hugs,” approximately 280,000 books and more than 748 TONS of care packages to Americans serving in harm's way.
Many troops live on bases with no place to buy “luxury” items like socks & coffee!
Donations from patriotic people like you make this project possible!!!
The Hugs Project is a 501 C 3 non-profit which has NO salaried employees; we are all volunteers. Your tax-deductible donations help our troops in harm’s way.
