Victory Junction Kids Camp

I became involved due to my 1st husband being killed in racing. So all afghans are donanted in his name and the ones who send me yarn to help my cause! Charlie loved racing and died doing what he loved and this camp for kids that are terminally ill deserve to have many special times and love, each child leaves this camp with an afghan or quilt.
They needed afghans for each child that attends the camp so I'am always crocheting and decided to donate to this cause as was in the race family to begin with.
All my yarn is doanted for afghans so I use all kinds!!!
I crochet at least 8 hours a day.
I have to date donated 45 afghans
The idea is to give something to terminally ill children who can feel special when they attend this camp.
No there has been no report of my donating!
I have been told thru cards and aletters that the items I have made, make there children feel very loved and cared for and one that did not survive was even buried with he afghan!
