Angels for Hope

I am the VP of Angels For Hope.

We are a group of homemakers, professionals, mothers, and grandmothers joined together for one purpose … to bring hope and love into someone’s life. We crochet angels and butterflies, free of charge, in a desire of bringing some joy to someone who is in need.

I personally love your Jamie yarn; it makes such soft and sweet angels.

We have grown over the last year to over 700 members. We average 2500-3000 angels per month and 1300-1700 butterflies.

As I handle all the requests and new members for Angels For Hope as well as crochet, I spend 10-12 hours a day on our mission. All who crochet know how relaxing this craft can be to anyone. Add to that the warm feeling it brings to your heart to donate your item to someone in need and there is nothing more fulfilling.

We do receive thank you notes from some of our recipients and it truly does warm your heart to know that a small item that you have crocheted has brought such hope and joy into someone’s life.
