A special Thanks to clevergirl.etsy.com for taking initiative and putting together the following event:
The above event (click to enlarge) was born out of a forum thread that celvergirl happened upon and she says:
"Earlier this week someone posted (a thread) asking for help in getting her husband the Purple Heart he has more than earned and deserves. I signed the petition...There are too many people in this world that do good and get ignored...with in their time of need. Thus, CraftLove was born. And Specialist Conde is the first project. It's not about war. It's not about hate. It's not about choosing sides and who is right or wrong. It's about making something out of love and sharing it with someone who could really use it. So here's the first "challenge" We, the people, will give Specialist Conde his purple heart."
She has put together this beautiful collage of a lot of the outpouring of several Etsy members who have gotten involved in the project and made purple hearts to send in the box:
