Craft Hope: Join the Movement!

I recently received a very exciting message from Jade Sims, founder of Craft Hope. While I can't share the details of our exchange yet (I don't want to jinx anything!!), I CAN share this wonderful woman's work and dream with you!

From the Craft Hope website, "Craft Hope is a faith-based, love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world".

Their first project, making and sending handmade pillowcase dresses and shorts to a shelter in Mexico, was a huge success. You can read about it right HERE.

Project 2 is currently drawing to a close, with a deadline of just one more week! For this project, Craft Hope has coordinated the effort to make and gather 207 handmade dolls to be sent to an orphanage in Nicaragua.
Tutorials are provided for each project, and this is such a wonderful way to put your crafty skills and big hearts to work for the greater good. Sign up for the newsletter to be kept up to date with new projects, or write to Jade for more information at

Stay tuned here for the details of how I am hoping to be involved in Craft Hope. I should have some info to share by early next week!
Have you done any crafting for charity? I would love to hear about it! Please leave a comment!

Great News... I personally have done tons and tons of crochet for charity, from making Hats for the Homeless, Bereavement Blankets for people who have lost loved ones, newborn items for Newborns in Need, Cancer Caps for cancer patients, Lap Robes for a Canadian Nursing Home, and much much more. When I have time to make things, it brings me much pleasure to help others.
