Fisher House supports America's military in their time of need, providing a home-away-from-home that enables family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time -- during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. Their facilities house not only the wounded, but their families.

Hero Miles is a Fisher House program comprised of individual airlines whose passengers donate their frequent flyer miles to assist service members and their families. The Foundation provides free airline tickets to military men and women who are undergoing treatment at a military or VA medical center incident to their service in Iraq or Afghanistan, and their families.

Blankets of Hope is a team project of Soldier's Angels. Volunteers sew simple quilts, which are then sent either to a field evacuation center in a combat area, or to hospitals where the wounded are treated. You can create your own design or purchase a blanket kit to finish.  View some of the quilts I have made for this project. Patriotic colors & themes are great for these projects, & recycled jeans work well, too.
