Now, when I see natural disasters on the television or online, I know exactly the desperation and heartache they are experiencing. And like you, I want to reach out to help but often I am unsure of what is needed and how I can help. That’s why I love Craft Hope. Craft Hope is a voluntary organization connecting crafters with those in need. Their purpose is simple; promote a love of crafting while instilling a desire to help those in need.
Right now, Craft Hope is running a new project: Project 13, creating security blankets for the tornado survivors of the recent deadly outbreak in the Southeastern U.S. They are asking for any handmade, machine-washable blanket from infant to adult sizes. A 26” x 28” blanket is perfect to swaddled a newborn and if you need a quick template, here is an easy one off their site: Take Along Quilt
The deadline for this project in June 15th
Please mail all completed blankets to:
255 Centre St Apt 6
Nutley NJ 07110
And if the craftvism bug has caught you, please check out Craft Hope’s book for more fantastic ideas and tutorials to give back to those in need.
