Good Afternoon Jan-Maree,
Thank you so much for my quilt! I love it! Such a beautiful design.
Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved :)
I am a soldier serving overseas and I just received the football laundry bag you sent, thank you very much for spending the time to make such a useful gift. I received it on Father's Day which was great.
I am currently Jan-Maree's contact "here" for Aussie Hero Quilts, as such I dispense all the laundry bags, Quilts and goodies to the guys. As I'm sure your husband can testify to the fact that while on deployment it is common for all of us to go through times of loneliness, due factors like missing Friends, Parents, Children and Beloved Partners. Although nothing but our eventual return home will full eleviate these feelings, we have facilities and people who help all of us along the way.
I would like to thank you for the quilt that I received from you. It makes me a proud Aussie soldier to receive gifts like this from fair dinkum Aussies like yourself who give up their time to make our lives over here that little bit better.
On behalf of my soldiers and myself, I thank you for the big effort you and other great Aussies do for the soldiers over here.
Once again thank you for the quilt which I will take home with me on completion of my deployment to show my family and keep as a memento.
Good Morning Jan-Maree,
I have finally received my hero quilt, Thank you and your worker quilt bees for all the hard work you do for all of us over here.
We truly appreciate the efforts, Its beautiful and if you could pass on my thanks to Michelle C that would be great.
Have a great day :-)
I honestly don't know how you do it.... It is so me it's not funny !!
It has everything I asked for !!
The kangaroos in the sunset reminds me of my grandparents farm.
Our house backs onto bushland also, and what did we wake up to EVERY morning ...? Kookaburras !!! Uncanny or what ?
I have hung it up in the office to show it off !!!
I am so happy with it :-)
I want to hang it in the office for a couple of weeks before I start using it coz it gets cold here soon and I will need it.
I did use my laundry bag before I took it home. I am back using my issued one. Its about half the size and is not double material. So I have been back to washing every day or at the most every second day. I will be using this one straight away. This one is not going straight to the pool room LOL
Another friend of mine sent me a photo of one of the laundries in Kandahar - check out all those Aussie Hero Laundry Bags! I think we have made a difference guys!
