Hey, Reduce your Stash!

I am going to pack up a box of goodies (or junk depending on how you look at it) for Shelly, get together another box of stuff for Miss “I decided to go to college in the ruddy Arctic Circle” but not mail that because I’m waiting to see if others want to throw in stuff. Then pick up boxes, yes, I said boxes for…

Iraqi Bundles of Love

The Ogre was a tad worried we were adopting. That’s totally not it. It’s a quick and dirty, and loosen your stash, do a good deed kind of project that needs to be done

TODAY.

Really, pretty much today. See what you do is get a APO mailing box, stuff it full of fabric, sewing, knitting (YARN) supplies, bundle it up and mail it to Iraq and it gets distributed. See but the mailing deadline is Sept 7. Which really makes the deadline Saturday Sept 5th because, well, no mail Sunday, and no mail Monday.

Here is a bit of info from IBOL:
The general premise is this. I am in Iraq, and I can get mail through the US Postal System. Willing contributors can send to me a flat-rate box of sewing / quilting supplies, all bundled up. I’d open the box, pull out the fully-contained bundle, and hand it off (with others) to our counterparts in the Iraqi Security Forces (Army and others) or the local police, for them to distribute. Some of the bundles will also be delivered by US Soldiers. The stated intent of this operation is to put sewing and quilting and knitting supplies into the hands of two types of recipients: locals who desperately need such things, and local sewing co-ops and other small businesses who have received grants or loans (typically to purchase sewing machines, rent space, etc).-

See don’t you want to help!!! Just hurry! Get your box and mail it out! If you are really interested, go to the site and ask for the address in the comments, or if I know you, I will give it to you. He doesn’t want to be all spammed out. Got it? QUICK!!!
