Okay, Ladies and Gents,
This idea is taken from another topic posted by Bettyrasm. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-97349-1.htm
This could be the new project from the board to continue along the lines of our Military Barracks Quilt Project that is nearly winding down. I hope many "someones" will take on the task of making, filling, and shipping these "Cool ties" to troops overseas. We kept them warm, now let's keep them cool!
Afghanistan is a particularly choice location for them. And if you want to continue to bless the Battalion we did with the quilts, I'll send out that address.
I'm not volunteering to head this project. I really believe we can do this individually. Imagine how many of these ties one could pack into a small APO Priority box; that rate to military members is cheaper than regular postage! The ties weigh next to nothing, the polymers that 'fill' them are incredibly light. I'm looking forward to sending a bunch out next month.
Instructions for making them are here: http://www.watersorb.com/polymer_cool_neck_bands.htm
I challenge you to start making, picturing, posting here, and shipping them!
