Little and Big Warriors

Tiny Blessings is doing a new project for Memorial Day, extending to the Fourth of July. We want to honor our veterans and current service men and women while making hats for our sweet babies in the NICU. We have "designed" six hats to honor our military branches and two patriotic themed hats. 

We have khaki and red for the Marine Corp, navy and grey for the Air Force, camouflage for the Army, and white and navy for the Navy. We are open to suggestions for the Coast Gaurd as well!

We will be making a large number of these hats and need help from our supporters. We would like to attach a name to each of these hats of one of our veterans or current service members. Each hat will be given to the NICU with an attached tag detailing the person it was made and given in honor of. For example, the Marine hat above was made in honor of Matt's grandfather and will have a tag that says "John M. Mayes, United States Marine Corp, World War II- Pacific Front". As you can see, I still need to get his rank!

So friends, send us names, details, and stories of our American warriors. Their stories will be used to cover the heads of some of our littlest warriors! The stories will be chronicled on our Facebook page along with the hats made and we will make two drop offs, one just before Memorial Day and one just before July 4th. We are excited to be thanking our veterans and military families in our own little way!!!

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. -Ephesians 6:13

Anyone interested in donating supplies to this project can contact us. If you are interested in donating to a great organization that directly helps veterans, we recommend the Wounded Warriors Project.
