Welcome to The Ships Project, a great way to make a difference in the lives of those military members who are deployed on the ground or at sea. 
Whenever they are away from home, we try to provide "hugs from home" in the form of hand-knit and crocheted hats, slippers, knitted socks,
sewn fleece hats, and sewn cool ties.  We also supply warm items to those who have been injured or wounded. 
 
Since our inception in 2001, when a sailor aboard the USS BATAAN asked  me for a pair of knitted slippers, we have sent more than ONE MILLION
handmade items to people serving on six continents and in every branch of the military, whether on the ground or at sea.  If they wear the
uniform of the USA, we will send to them.  There is no charge for anything we send.  Please join us.
