Holiday Giving

I take off time between Christmas and New Years so that I can have time to spend with the family. With them being so busy with school and with us parents being so busy with work, it becomes a needed time to just relax together.

But relaxing for me is having my crochet hook in my hand! So during that holiday time, I pick a charity to donate to.

Last year I made hats and gloves for a local homeless shelter (Star House) that specializes in teens. These kids can't go to a family shelter because they aren't part of a family and the adult shelters are too scary for them. When I dontated the items the shelter didn't have overnight accommodations so the kids often slept during the day at Star House so they could keep moving at night to stay safe.

This year I dontated chemo caps to the James Cancer Center. This seemed to be a cancer year for many of our friends and I wanted to give to those who might need to know that someone is thinking of them.
