Angels `n Camouflage

My sister told me there was an organization called Angels `n Camouflage and they needed people to make lapghans for veterans in homes.

I love to crochet and am a veteran so I had to get involved. I recruited my mother(also a veteran) to help also. We have only made a couple so far but they need 250. We are making them all of red, white, and blue. They want them to be for Christmas gifts. So far I am the only one who signed on to be a "Lapghan Angel" and will do my best to make sure that they have a wonderful Christmas this year and every year after this.

There are a lot of organizations that can use help. It makes me feel good to finish a project but I feel even better about being me because the things I make will make someone happy.

What can be better than putting a smile on someone's face?
