Valentines for Vets Project

Could You Give Sew Much Comfort to a Wounded Veteran?

I'm hoping you can participate with me in a meaningful Valentine's Day project that will put a smile on the face of a hospitalized veteran and earn a great donation for an excellent cause: Sew Much Comfort.

Keep reading and you will see that all you really need to do is post a comment after this post! But you can do a little more if you'd like.

Valentines for Veterans is a project to boost the morale of Veterans during National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week (February 7-13).

Sew Much Comfort provides adaptive clothing for wounded veterans, through the volunteer efforts of seamstresses and donations of clothing and fabric.

Dollar Days will sponsor a large clothing donation to Sew Much Comfort in honor of the National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week. Dollar Days will donate $50 retail value in clothing for every post that is officially part of the project, plus, to encourage your community to talk about the cause, $50 more for each post that receives at least 10 comments.

This is the deal:

  1. Make and deliver at least 12 Valentines for our local Veterans’ Hospital. I am going to have a table set up with all sorts of great things for making Valentines, Sunday, February 7th so please stop by between noon and two and make a couple of Valentines for our Vets!
  2. Blog about the project by February 8, by explaining our craft project, sharing photographs of making the Valentines, focusing on hospitalized veterans and Sew Much Comfort.
During Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week, Dollar Days will be sharing more about how people can volunteer with and donate to Sew Much Comfort and will link up to all of the wonderful bloggers who post on this project.

Thank you, Dollar Days, for your donation!
