A reciprocating link. Sending E-mail to Military personnel
To date more than 35,000 pairs of slippers have been distributed to Members of the US military. Such a small act of kindness & thanks from one person, does not merely thank the service member who receives a pair of handcrafted slippers. It lifts Morale, when they are so far from their homes, It shows them that they are not forgotten in their dedicated service to keep our Homeland safe.
