Soldier's Angels Announces "Operation Cool Scarf"
"The cool scarf is a great way to beat the heat," said Patti Bader, founder and executive director of Soldier's Angels. "Cool scarves are made from 100 percent cotton. The magic in these scarves comes from the non-toxic synthetic crystals which transform into a soft cooling gel. This cool gel enables the scarves to stay cool two to three days without refrigeration. After being hand washed by the soldiers in-country, the scarves are easy to reactivate again by soaking them in cool water for 15 minutes.
Founded in 2003 by the mother of a U.S. soldier, Soldiers Angels is a non-profit Internet community dedicated to ensuring that members of the military know they are loved and supported. To date, more than 105,000 individuals have adopted soldiers worldwide. These "angels" provide aid and comfort to the military and to their families. Soldier's Angels are asked to write their adopted soldier once a week, and to send small care packages to him or her twice a month. Soldiers Angels currently works with over 50,000 military units. Nearly 6,000 blankets have been given to injured service men and women in U. S. hospitals. During the Christmas holidays in 2006, more than 90,000 gift bags were sent to U. S. soldiers. All donations to Soldiers Angels are tax deductible. The organization can be reached at http://www.soldiersangels.org/ or by telephone at 1-615-676-0239.
