Group Description

The Ships Project was founded in October, 2001, to provide handmade "hugs from home" to troops deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, both at sea and on the ground. We have since expanded to include troops involved in all military actions. We send knitted, crocheted, and sewn hats, slippers, socks (always a huge hit!) as well as sewn cool ties to American troops serving in the War on Terror. We'd love to have you join us!

More than ONE MILLION 600 THOUSAND handmade "hugs from home" have been sent to deployed troops!

Whether you knit, crochet, sew, or just want to help with postage, we'd love to have you join us. The list is for active members only since it is an "announcements" only list, not a discussion list.

Please check out our website at http://www.theshipsproject.com

Frequently Asked Questions and our "Getting Started" guide can be found on our Members-Only Information Page.

Our paypal account for Postage Donations is under ellens12@yahoo.com and may be reached through www.paypal.com. We can accept credit cards.

Please note that NO MAIL is not an option on this list because of changing needs, patterns, and so on. You may opt for individual, digest, or special announcements only. Thank you.
