The Hugs Project

Fellow indie author Wanda S. Paryla is asking for additional support for The Hugs Project, an organization dedicated to sending care packages to soldiers serving overseas. She's written a beautiful piece on the mindset behind the project. Please visit her page. It's well worth your time.

I want to add that, as an Army officer serving in Afghanistan, ventures such as this really do help soldiers. Anyone who's read a war novel knows that one of the biggest morale boosters for a soldier is hearing his name during mail call. Words really can't describe the feverish glee that crosses my soldiers' faces as they tear open their letters or packages, even if they don't recognize the name on the return address. And the biggest morale killer is the feeling that the people back home have forgotten you. So please, if you can, help America's uniformed men and women finish the war in Afghanistan strong. Support them right up to the end.
