Bundles of Love

The civilians in Iraq have been living under sanctions for a long, long time. An extraordinary officer is now pulling together an effort to give sewing supplies to Iraqi civilians prior to the departure of our troops.

Take a look at the website: if you have extra fabric, notions, yarn, etc., send it along to be distributed to Iraqi civilians. Leave a comment and Art will send you his APO address for shipping a flat-rate box.

It seems to me that sending a token of kindness, in the form of a leg-up in hard times, will do a great deal for long-term diplomatic relations. The world is growing smaller and any contribution to making that space easier to live in is surely a powerful thing.
