Could You Give Sew Much Comfort to a Wounded Veteran?
We have an exciting February project that would allow you to put a smile on the face of a hospitalized veteran and earn a great donation for an excellent cause: Sew Much Comfort.
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.
We are looking for bloggers who will:
- Make and deliver at least 12 Valentines for your local Veterans’ Hospital. You can do this with friends, as part of a playgroup, with a classroom, with a blogger meet-up or tweet-up–have fun with it! Canada also salutes its veterans on Valentine’s Day and has some great tips for making Valentines for Veterans.
- Blog about the project by February 8. You can explain your craft project, share photographs of making the Valentines, focus on the idea of helping hospitalized veterans, or let your readers know more about Sew Much Comfort. Please remember to thank Dollar Days for their donation and explain the mission of Sew Much Comfort.
During Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week, we 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.
Please click here to fill out this form (by February 4) if you are interested in participating. Feel free to share this information with your friends and community if you know of other bloggers who would like to get involved!
