I usually share a funny project or meal that I've been working on on this blog. I will continue to do that but today I wanted to share something that someone else is doing.
Today I came across Craft Hope http://www.crafthope.com/2012/01/project-16-the-littlest-warriors/ Craft Hope is a project that shares handmade gifts with those in need. The posts I read brought tears to my eyes.
I wanted to share this site because today, on Valentines day I realize how lucky I am to have three little people and a husband in my life that I love so much and that love me back. I also realize how lucky I am that they are all very healthy and happy. Unfortunately, this isn't true for everyone.
Craft Hope's current mission is to provide handmade bags and beanies for children undergoing cancer treatment.
Please visit the Craft Hope website to see if you can participate in their mission.
I'm hopefully going to make a football beanie (or maybe a couple) and a t-shirt bag or two to send along. If you aren't a big sewer but want to help anyway, check out the t-shirt bag, they look very easy to make

You can also find videos on making these bags on Youtube.
