Special Request!

Hello all!! I can't say enough about how I appreciate all the support we're getting from people ALL over the U.S!! WOW!! My brother set up a tracker that logs what state people are from that click on our blog. And I must say that I think there has been someone in EVERY state check us out at least once. WOW!! THANK YOU!!! There was a backup in our mail...WOW!! The guys that get our mail from the post office have not been too happy with me...because of all the care packages I've been getting. THANK YOU!! But not only do I thank you, there are Soldiers across Iraq that are thanking you. Through your support, I've been able to help wounded Soldiers at TWO Hospitals, one MiTT team, and two other Platoons on two other bases!! I'm not sure if there is a number to people I am reaching BECAUSE of people that send me items. THANK YOU!!! I was thinking about the "Hall of Fame" post I did a couple months back and I said that I would continue to post the names of people that sent care packages...Honestly...that would take a LOT of time! And I thank you for that!!!

With that being said....I was approached today by some people from the Hospital. I guess everyone kinda knows that I get a lot of "stuff". They asked me for bed linen; pillows, pillow cases, bed sheets (single bed-the small mattress), and blankets. Through previous donations I was able to supply them with at about 100 of each....but we still need about 200 more of everything. I understand this is big request, but our Soldiers need these items. This is an unusual thing, but none the less we have a particular situation that needs addressed quick. I understand that this is a LOT for any one person, but with many, it is a very possible feat. The items will be needed by 1 October -ish. The cheapest, most cost efficient, simple white items will be perfect! If you find colored items to be cheaper, solid colored items will be best - no print please. Blankets - wool is great. Again, we don't need thick heavy comforters, just some regular ol' blankets. If you can help in any way, it will be so so MUCH appreciated!! This Soldiers will appreciate it more than you will ever know.

My address here is:

Again, if you can help in any way, THANK YOU!!

I can't say how much I appreciate your help!!

I love you all and thank you for supporting you Troops!!
