No matter the political situation or your beliefs, one thing we can all agree on...our troops need our support. To show our respect and love, we do a lot to support the families of those who are deployed. One of those things is called Operation Child Comfort.
Operation Kid Comfort provides quilts for kids who are 6 and younger and pillows for children 7 and older. The special craft incorporates photo transfer pictures of the parent that is deployed. Volunteers take the pictures and fabrics and make precious heirloom quilts and pillows. During the season of giving. We love highlighting programs like this that focus on giving back to those making real sacrifices for our country.
Not only is this a sweet thing to have an option of for the spouses to do for their child or children, but other members of the family can request a quilt or pillow too. It's been an incredibly personal mission for me. When I create I think about those children who miss their mom or dad, I count my blessings and through my all into these projects.
