Crafting A Rainbow Of Hope ~
Comfort After Harvey
By now everyone has either seen or heard about Hurricane Harvey and how much damaged he has done and is still causing. With all the devastation that we are currently experiencing my friend Celina (Simply Collectible Crochet) and I have teamed up to start helping….
….those who have a greater need than us. In the 11 years that I have lived here I have never seen anything like what we are currently going through. Without going through all the emotional details…I will tell you that the water was 6-inches from our front door before it started receding. I think that is when I became really worried…
This is a small endevour to show comfort after the devastating Harvey.
Type of items to be made:
8, 9 or 10 inch squares, lapghans, baby blankets, booties, hats (baby to adult), etc. The items can be crochet or knit.
Smoke free environment
Crafting a Rainbow of Hope Community
If you know me then you know how passionate I am with helping those who truly need it and my love for crochet. I have been involved in several charities and gifting to those that I felt needed a little extra love for a few years now and I love every bit of it. In 2013 I really started thinking about how I should have a community of my own that gifts to people who are grieving, going through hard times, who are ill, specific charities, hospitals, etc. It warms my heart to give a handmade item to someone who I feel could use it. Weaving that special bond between others is amazing. In November of 2014 my dad was put in the hospital. That’s when I met Danny from Guest Services who mentioned the cancer patients were in need of warm hats, scarves, and such while undergoing their treatment. With all of this in mind “Crafting A Rainbow Of Hope” became a reality.
Please feel free to send (gift) crocheted, knitted, sewn/quilted items throughout each month for those who could use a little extra love.
If you would like to participate in this endeavor and join the group HERE please fill out the form (below). The items will be delivered to the specific locations throughout each month. You may place a card with size or age it will fit, care instructions, and an inspirational verse.
