All Crafts 4 Charity

I am just a small part of a group called 'All Crafts 4 Charity'. I joined the group last December. It took me a bit longer to get active in the group because of vision problems. I learned in March just how much of a problem it is. I will soon go in for surgery to correct this and then I look forward to donating more.

Over the years I was a cub scout leader, assisted teachers by tutoring students, taught arts and crafts and volunteered at a local convalescent home assisting the Activity Director. Things have changed as I now live in the country. I needed to find something from home to help others. I found this group on the internet. They help so many people I would have trouble listing them all. They have projects being done to help individuals all over the world as well as the US. The little bit I have done is nothing compared to what others have been able to do. The project I recently sent 8 crocheted baby blankets to was Stormont-Vail NICU in Kansas. Susan Kraus was the coordinator.

The yarn I like to use is JAMIE. I find it easy to work with. And after my vision is corrected I look forward to helping more. It is a good feeling to know you have the ability to help others. It doesn't have to take much time. In fact, I just did a little at a time. I found it difficult to do other projects but I could keep my crocheting handy and in spare minutes add a few rows at a time.

Until I joined this group I had no idea so much was being done by so many.

I sent my items to Kansas without taking photos. I was more anxious in getting them in the mail to be used by those in need.
