From the local heroes who brought you “Footsteps To Freedom” comes “Threads Of Gratitude”, the latest effort from “Ipads for Soldiers” to show respect to our men and women in the military for their endless sacrifices on behalf of all Americans. Vintage denim jackets and vests are transformed by artists into works of art, with the only directive being to include the organization’s slogan, “Forever Grateful.” From patriotic themes and more powerful images to koi fish and honeybees, each jacket has a character and feel all its own. Totally fashionable and unique, these garments are a wonderful way to honor the troops and financially support the purchase of iPads to be shipped to those still fighting overseas and delivered in person to wounded heroes in our military hospitals stateside. There are even some designs for children’s jackets on offer. Also included in the line are a wide-range of t-shirts with a “burned out” fabric that simply features the “Forever Grateful” slogan with a dog tag. Caps are also available. All profits from the sale of this line go directly to support our troops; iPadsForSoldiers.com.
