American Crochet ~ Crafting a Rainbow of Hope
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 for a few years now and I love every bit of it. One of the charities that I’ve been involved in is ELK Studio – From the Heart by my dear friend Kathy Lashley. She has been a huge inspiration to me in so many ways. Within the last two years I really started thinking about how I should have an organization of my own that donates to one or more specific charities a month. 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.
Each month we will be donating crocheted items to the charity of our choice. These items will go to the patients as they undergo their treatments.
If you would like to participate in this endeavor and join the group please fill out the form and/or go HERE to do so. Each month on the 20th will be the completion/ship date for that month. The items will be delivered to the hospital on the 1st of each month. I am giving a little room for the mail system as I do not want to leave anyone out. You may place a card with size or age it will fit, care instructions, and an inspirational verse.
The children like bright and wild colors as with any child. There are older teens and adults who may prefer the more neutral or muted colors. Any color will be accepted.
- NO WOOL PLEASE!!!
- Smoke free environment
- Place each item in a plastic bag or send plastic bags with the hats
