Remember the Iraqi Bundles of Love?
Major Art La Flamme of the US Army is back again with IBOL II!
The original IBOL was such a success- 3445 bundles of fabric and sewing supplies were shipped to Iraq and distributed by US Soldiers to sewing co-ops and women who are in need of basic supplies for their families. That's about 30,000 pounds of supplies.
You have the opportunity to help! Go to http://ibol.wordpress.com/ and ask for the address.
I'll show you what you do- it's an easy way to help someone just by going through your stash!
First, get a large flat rate box from the Post Office. You can get the plain ones, or the ones designed to go to military addresses. The boxes are free.
Secure the bundle by folding the fabric over and knotting the ribbon...
get it to the Post Office no later than October 1st! The flat rate for this box is $12.50 when shipped to a military address. (Ask your friends to join you- they can donate sewing supplies, or sponsor a box!! Or both!!)
Make it a Wonderful Day!
