Teresa's Class
Created By: Kim Dallum

My cousin Teresa is a second grade teacher in a desperately poor school district. Some of her children have less than nothing, no hygiene supplies, not enough food or appropriate clothing. Every day Teresa helps with hygiene and food and every year Teresa collects hand-me-downs for the winter closet at school. My 4 sisters and myself have been steady sources with clothes our own kids have out grown. After a couple years of donating, it occured to me one day, as we were all gathered around one sister's kitchen table, that all of us were financially able to buy new hats and mittens for the entire class. Having been a knitter since the age of 5, my next thought was that I was capable of making each child a new hat and pair of mittens. And I have, every year for the last 7 years. I knit a little prayer into each hat and each mitten for the protection of the child that wears them. I make them from bright colors, local sports team colors, etc. It warms my heart all winter to think of a sea of children wearing bright colors at play, walking to and from school, snug and warm and knowing that someone cares enough about them to make them something of their very own. Teresa reports to me that she sees younger siblings wearing the hand-me-downs. May the ripples never end.
