We think it’s important to give back to make a positive impact on the world around us. This week, we chose to participate in the Valentines for Veterans/Give Sew Much Comfort project that we heard about from Bloganthropy. Valentines for Veterans is a project to boost the morale of Veterans during National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week (February 7-13). We thought this would be a great way to let our Veterans know that they are important to us, loved, and valued. These brave men and women sacrifice so much to keep us safe, and we feel it’s important to let them know how much we appreciate their dedication and valor.
We encourage everyone to make Valentine’s for Veterans and drop them off at a Veterans Hospital near you. In conjunction with this great project, one of our clients, DollarDays will be donating $50 retail value in clothing for every post about the project, plus $50 more for each post that receives at least 10 comments. So blog, facebook, and tweet away to inspire others to take a few minutes of their time to say thank you to our Veterans! And we’d like to give Dollar Days a big thank you for their generosity and goodwill!
Dollar Days is also providing clothing worth thousands of dollars in retail to Sew Much Comfort in honor of the National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week. Sew Much Comfort provides adaptive clothing at no cost to support the unique needs of our injured service members from all branches of the military and national guard. This clothing fits around medical devices and prosthetics and gives the service member and medical personnel ready access to injured areas. Through the volunteer efforts of seamstresses and donations of money, clothing and fabric, Sew Much Comfort has been able to provide over 75,000 pieces of adaptive clothing and comfort. More information about volunteering and requesting adaptive clothing can be found on the website, where you can also find a list of needed clothing and fabric if you wish to donate.
