I am involved in an organization called Homes For Our Troops, you can check them out by going to www.homesforourtroo ps.com , Homes for Our Troops is a non-profit organization
That builds new homes or adapts existing homes with handicapped accessibility for seriously disabled  and injured veterans . I live in North Louisiana and we have  fund raisers in our area to gain funds for Homes For Our Troops. So far we have done a bake sale and a raffle for a signed guitar by Colt Ford. Both were a big success. We are now wanting to put on a craft sale, everyone loves crafts. I was hoping that maybe some of you would be willing to help us out by donating  a homemade item for the sale. All of the proceeds will go directly to the organization. Thank you all very much for your time and if you would like to contact me with an address to send items to or you have any questions please feel free to email me at
manesfarm@peoplepc.com . Thank you again

When would the craft sale be?  What would be the deadline for donations?

OK, I gotta ask something.  It's not that I care in the least, but my fiance is like super uptight about financial records (like totally OCD).  Will y'all send out tax receipts for items?  I'm asking because I know he's gonna ask me for one.  LOL

I myself dont have the power to do that but if you go to the Homes For Our Troops web site and make a cash donation then it can be taken off your taxes. And I do know you can deduct like up to $500 off your taxes for charitable donations every year with out receipts.

I'll get a box of goodies together for you once I've finished my move and wedding.  You'll receive by the end of July.
