Girl Scouts and Girl Guides

I became involved in a service project with the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides two and a half years ago. On a trip to Mexico to visit Our Cabaña, one of four world centers for Scouting, adult scouts from the USA and Europe taught me how to crochet and knit. Visitors to Our Cabaña use 4 inch squares, donated by Girl Scouts and Guides from around the world, to create blankets to help the poor. Since that March, I have crocheted more than 300 squares and completed a few blankets for donation to a worthy cause. At this point, I am unsure as to how many people have benefitted from my efforts, but any help is good help to someone in need. Anyone who questions getting involved with a cause, question no more - it will heal your heart and mend your soul to offer any help you can!
