This from a wife requesting for her husband.
"He mentioned that guys have been receiving quilts etc made by people back home who have no idea who they are. His comment was "it's very nice that there are people who care enough to put so much effort in for us"."
This is truly and amazing thing you are doing. It really is nice to receive mail from home when deployed. I would love to receive a quilt as I think this would look great in my room. I'm more than happy to have it sent to me whilst I am deployed. I'll confirm postage information shortly. Thank you so much.
Thank you very much. What you do for the deployed troops is very much appreciated. I saw a friend on her way home a few weeks ago and she was taking her quilt to keep her warm on the plane back to Australia.
This is the first time I have heard of your organisation and the work that you do. I think it is a wonderful thing you do. this and I like would like to please request a quilt and laundry bag if I may. My interests are Military stuff and AFL (Geelong Cats) and NRL (Cowboys) .
I miss my home very much and cant wait to return to Australia and marry my wonderful partner so we can start a family together early next year.
I have received an email in regards to having a laundry bag and quilt made and if possible would love to receive one. I think its amazing that complete strangers do such nice things for our soldiers! I would be very grateful to receive one of your hand made quilts and a laundry bag. My favourite colours include blues, purples and white. I will be deployed in country for approximately three months unless otherwise extended.
Kind Regards from a very grateful young soldier,
My husband s currently deployed overseas and I have just been told of your amazing quilts. how can I go about arranging a quilt for him? Looking through the photos I had to hold back the tears as I know just how much this will mean to the boys currently overseas so far from home but wrapped in love.
That will have to do for tonight - I will try and share some more next week.
As usual on a Thursday night - here is a list of those who have quilts or laundry bags in the mail this week. Please let me know if you are not on this list and should be.
