GIFTABLE: for the police wife

This one is for all my loyal law enforcement readers! The blue rose is a symbol for significant others of police officers and these handmade items would be great gifts for the police wife or girlfriends on your list.

Of course, Blue Rose personlized notecards and Think Blue Line Wreath holiday cards are still available in the LEO Collection from Tulaloo. A portion of the profits from all LEO Collection sales goes to The National Police Wives Association - a non-profit support and outreach organization for the families of law enforcement officers.

Before I go, I just want to take a moment to let you know about Project Blue Light. I've borrowed this description from the Washington DC chapter of C.O.P.S :

"The color blue is a symbol of peace. Put blue lights in your window, decorate your tree in blue, trim the outside of your home or the police station in blue lights. Let our blue lights shine in support of law enforcement this season.You will be sending a dual message that you support America's peacekeepers and that you hope the coming year will be a year of peace."

C.O.P.S. (Concerns Of Police Survivors) is a non-profit group that helps the surviving families of law enforcement killed in the line of duty. Their work, and the message of Project Blue Light, is something I hope everyone keeps in mind this holiday season and particularly after the tragic murders of four Washington Police Officers this past weekend. Sgt. Mark Renninger and Officers Ronald Owens, Tina Griswold and Greg Richards leave behind spouses and children as well as a grieving law enforcement community. Please take some time to remember these brave men and women and keep their families in your thoughts and prayers.
