I Feel the Love Project- U.S. Navy Sailors


I Feel the Love Project
One Year Anniversary

Project #8

Today we continue our journey back to the beginning by looking back at our recipient for the month of February 2012.

U.S. Navy Sailors

In February we made cards for sailors of the U.S. Navy who were about to deploy overseas for a tour of duty. We wanted to send them some love and support before they departed on their next mission. 

We felt this would be a great opportunity to say thank you to those who are working hard to keep our country safe. Our goal was to send 100 cards.  Well, we surpassed our goal and we were actually able to send a combined total of 144 cards and sets of prayer beads to 144 members of the USS Georgia Blue Crew departing to the Indian Ocean and Diego Garcia.  Each member of the crew received either a card or a set of prayer beads.

I want to thank Court of Courts Craft Corner and her classmates for sending in the prayer beads.  They were a big hit. The sailors from this crew have not yet returned from this tour of duty.  I will keep you posted and as soon as I have more information that I am allowed to post, I will provide an update.  I am sure they are looking forward to coming home.

Join me tomorrow as we look back at the recipient of the I Feel the Love Project cards for the month of March 2012, Trinitie.

Have a wonderful day.
