Got Fabric? [Sep. 1st, 2009|06:44 pm]

The deadline is the 8th of September.  I'm going to see if I can't get a box in the mail by then (or a little before..)

This comes at a good time for me; ok, my sewing room is a shambles (really my fabric storage room, I sew downstairs at my desk where I do everything else too.)  But I should be able to come up with enough extra supplies and fabric to pack a USPS flat rate box nice and full. 

What is this about?  Iraqi Bundles of Love. (this is the intro page.)  It's a grassroots program to send fabric, yarn, crafty stuff to Iraqi people for their use, started by someone currently stationed in Iraq.  He's looking for bundles to hand out at the end of Ramadan; the website requests that you post a comment on the program's blog in order to get the APO mailing address.  There's recommendations on how to pack a bundle and what to put in it linked from that intro post.  The blog for the aforementioned requested comments is here: IBOL blog

Would this be tax deductible?

To be honest, I am not sure. Hey J!

J says if it isn't an 'official' charity, it's still stuff given to the troops, which is commonly deducted. I suspect you wouldn't get in trouble for claiming it..
