Enchanted Tutus

There's a local organization called Operation Sea of Support that is doing a project called Enchanted Tutus. I've gone to a couple fundraising nights at local restaurants and they sent out this email today. I wanted to get it out there for as many people to read as I can get. Here's their press release:

Enchanted Tutu Announces Operation Sea of Support to Show Support for United States Service Members
Killeen, TX July 10, 2008 - Enchanted Tutu has initiated a campaign to provide a Yellow Ribbon Tutu free of charge to each daughter of every Service Member returning from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Enchanted Tutu has initiated a campaign which will provide a Yellow Ribbon Tutus to each daughter of every Service Member returning from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. This project is made possible through donations and sponsorships from area businesses and local volunteers. The hand made tutus will be produced and issued shortly before the designated Unit returns home, at which time the daughters will be wearing the tutus to welcome home their loved ones. The purpose is to provide a stunning and moving visual show of support for our returning troops. Each tutu will be made from yellow tulle, and will be complemented by the famed Yellow Awareness Ribbon. Jessica Levy of Bows 4 Maddie has partnered with Enchanted Tutu to offer a matching Yellow hair bow for every tutu. The tutus are available to the public and those not participating in Operation Sea of Support online at or by phone order at (254) 541-9151, and are priced at $40.00 each. 40% of the proceeds from the retail sale of the Yellow Ribbon Tutu is donated directly to The Yellow Ribbon Fund, which is an organization that aids injured service members upon their return home.
For additional information on Operation Sea of Support, contact Stephen or Brandy Runyan at (254) 624-9000 or (254) 541-9151, go to, or email or Toni Palmer (Fort Hood) at (254)285-7794 or (502)710-1312 or email 48408-1 Craig Dr, Ft. Hood ,Texas 76544
