    collecting pillowcases for our soldiers

    pa state nurses association president patrick e. kenny, edd, rn, acrn, cna, bc, c is asking for your help to assist wounded soldiers.

    kenny (director of nursing education and research at penn presbyterian medical center) is spearheading the "superhero" pillowcase campaign. he requests your participation to make a wounded soldier's recovery a little better with this comfort from home. kenny notes, this small token has gone a long way for the soldiers recovery by making them feel a little better and think of home when dealing with pain, surgery and rehab.

    how can you help?
    go to your local retailer, such as target, k-mart or walmart and buy "superhero" pillowcases. some of the "super heroes include: spider-man, x-men, superman, batman, superwoman, fantastic four, ghost rider, hulk, sin city, transformers, v for vendetta, hellboy, blade, marvel, captain america, green lantern, etc. the pillowcases retail for less than $5 notes kenny.

    Nothing to do with pillow cases - but did anyone see on the news that service men are using silly-string to help them know if a enterance is wirered with bombs? Someone is organizing a drive collecting all they can so every unit has enough!

    Yes, Mercyteapot posted a news story about that silly string strategy some time back. I admire those brave souls.

    Deb, you got a link for that silly string? I tried a search and turned up zip.

    Will be buying a pillow case. Thanks!
