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 Operation Iraqi Freedom. This is an "announcements only" list. We send handmade (knitted/crocheted/sewn) hats, slippers/socks and cool ties to American troops serving in the War on Terror. We'd love to have you join us!



To date, we have shipped more than 572,503 handmade "hugs from home" 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.
