HOURS PLEDGED: 100

THE STORY:

As a seasonal project with Operation: Quiet Comfort, a team of dedicated sewers, we sew cool ties in our homes, in groups and invidivually. Cool ties are then sent to OQC HQ and included in care packages that go to troops working in hot desert conditions, as they work to defend our freedoms.

Cool ties are worn around the head or neck, they are filled with a polymer that when hydrated provides cooling to the body. The temps that the troops work in exceed 120 and cool ties can help save their lives.

The project is an easy one, perfect for groups of all types - it is a great Eagle Scout project and really works well for groups.

We each put our own times and money toward this project and are always looking for donations and assistance. We have so many troops out there and the 100s or 1000s of cool ties we send annually only make a small dent in keeping them cool.
