Keeping Cadence - supporting our troops

Hey again folks. I just got an email (see note to follow) from my cousin who spearheads an incredible project that directly benefits our troops heading to & serving in Iraq. Keeping Cadence makes & provides sand & cooling scarves for our soldiers. Visit the Keeping Cadence website for more information and to make a donation. In addition to monetary donations, fabric & other materials are needed.

I rarely ask folks to forward things & you won't be visited by 1000 fleas if you don't, but please share this with others who might be interested. This link is also on my blog. A 1000 thanks and kudos to you, Doris, and all the other great folks helping you help America's finest.

I just returned from Camp Shelby Ms. where I was a guest of the Army at the training camp with 3300 troops leaving for Iraq this weekend. It was an awesome experience Carmen and I was able to deliver the 3300 cooling scarves I had made and the 3300 sand scarves that the gals in Nc made were delivered also. We are now looking for donations to make 1800 for Fort Brag NC troops that are leaving in March or early April. Tell all your friends to visit the webpage and donate if they can. The soldiers I talked to were some that are going back for the 2nd and 3rd time. They told me that the cooling scarves saved them from heat exhaustion and some of their friends and fellow soldiers had suffered heat strokes over there so these are REALLY IMPORTANT TO THEM they said. So we are asking everyone to dig deep into the penny bank and give what they can .....

If you cannot donate Please send a link to the site to anyone you think might be able to ok
Love ya

Hey! your Vick's caring tribute, is the one I voted for yesterday. I sat and watched everyone of them and I almost cried when I saw yours. I love how sweet and innocent children are. She sure loves her mommy! Gracie deserves that money for school!
