A friend of mine is sponsoring an effort to support the families of deployed Marines. She's organizing an effort to send care packages to moms of babies born while their dads are deployed.
Operation Marine Corps Kids will send care packages to the families of deployed troops when babies are born. The packages might include a hand-crafted baby afghan, cap or bonnet, booties or toy. With sufficient resources, we'll also be able to include a handmade toy for other kids in the family. It's a small, but significant, gesture of love and support for those who keep the home fires burning alone.
I'll be adding them to the side bar as well. Donations of hand-crafted items or hand-made toys very much welcome. More information on the Marine Corps Kids web site
