There is a project could be made from scraps of fabric for wounded soldiers. Called "dump bags" or "Walter Reed bags". Link to pdf file to make them:
You can go to
Make Dump Bags for Injured Soldiers- It's a catch-all fabric bucket! | Pepsi Refresh Everything
this site is to vote(you can vote once a day for this project) pepsi is giving money for a project $5000 I think. I hope the woman who came up with the idea gets the funding. They deliver the bags to Walter Reed hospital and her goal is that every wounded soldier gets a bag. I havent made one yet, I just found it, but it looks similar to scrap bags and they go quickly.
