FW: knitting request
I am forwarding your email to our knitting group. Sorry it took so long to reply. Your email got stuck in one of my email filters.
Hey Lincoln Knitters,
Please contact Nancy for more information if you have something to donate.
Maybe you could send this to your knitting list?

Hi, my name is Nancy Janousek and I live in Omaha, NE.
This email may or not be something your group can help me with but a friend of mine that is currently stationed in Afghanistan asked if I could try and find some ways to gather hats, mittens, scarves, sweaters, or blankets for the kids over there in the war zone. Apparently they have pretty bad winters and the children don't have warm clothing.
My friend is in the US infantry in a pretty rough area and he says its going to be a tough winter for all involved. Our men and women over there really try to help the village people and especially the kids whenever they can in addition to their regular mission that they were sent there for. Their hope is that the next generation will remember these deeds and maybe it will help bring peace just a little bit closer and keep our guys and girls a little bit safer.
I am grasping at straws here but I thought maybe some of the knitting, crocheting or quilting guilds or clubs might have some left over scrapes and that they might be looking for a good cause to make some things up for.
If you think you could be of help or know of anyone that might be able to I would really appreciate it. I can be reached at home in the evenings at 402-493-6952, or days at 402-544-3461.
Thanks so much for whatever you and your group might be able to do, or even if you have any ideas for me on how to go about this. It would be much appreciated.
Thank You for your time!
