Man Uses Own Credit Card to Keep Hugs Project Going
The Hugs Project sends gifts to U.S. troops in Afghanistan during the holidays, and money-wise, things were a little tight this year. The president of "The Hugs Project of Western Kentucky", Gayron Ferguson, reached into his own pocket and pulled out plastic and charged $600 to make sure no one goes without gifts. According to The Paducah Sun, Ferguson says he didn't raise enough money to ship the packages overseas. "When the money comes in, I'll pay the credit card off. These guys are too important." Each box, filled with magazines, toiletries, snacks and Christmas cards, costs $10.50 to mail. Go to this site if you want to help out.
