Ladies, as you all are probably aware by now,we have been working on the Lincoln Christmas Pillowcase project since around February of this year.
We have had a wonderful out pouring of support,some more than others, some as they were able.
And each contribution was meaningful and oh, so appreciated !
The goal of 5,000 pillowcases-one for each and every service member aboard this vessel !- has almost been reached, but unfortunately, so has the mailing date.
Bottom line...in spite of our best efforts so far,our sailorss will NOT be getting a Christmas pillowcase without YOUR help, just one more big pussh and it will be done---kind of like when you gave birth to your sailor,huh? final, hard push is the hardest,but the reward was a miracle!
Now we need you to push hard again and make another miracle happen;a smile on the face of each and every tired, dirty, achy,homesick ..son or daughter of us ALL !!!
It is sad to think of any sailor not having the love and support of letters and packages from back home, but it happens-a lot.Yet they get up every day and night, do their duty, and serve us with honor.
And they, too, need a pillowcase at Christmas. Our goal is that NO sailor does without at Christmas.
So...if you can sew,or contribute to the cost of a few more cases or for mailing expensses,contact me for instructions.If you cannot sew, you can still help! walmart sells pillowcases for about $3.00,if you take them home, wash them, and let the kids and their friends paint on them with fabric paint to personalize them, GREAT !!! if they want to cut out fabric and glue pretty pictures on them with fabric glue,GREAT!
PLEASE< PLEASE...contact your boy and girl scout troops, PTA,hunting club,Church,fellow employees, WHATEVER IT TAKES, let's make this happen!!!!
we have roughly one or two weeks left,and WE CAN STILL DO THIS !!!
Can you remember when they were little,under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning? Let's put THAT look on 5,000 faces !!!
