Has anyone else heard about this? I read on allsorts about Craft Hope–it’s a blog gathering handmade items to be given to children through mission work. You can still participate in the 2nd project which is making dolls for children at an orphanage in Nicaragua. The deadline is June 13th. This is pretty close to my heart as I’ve been contemplating making handmade things for kids throughout the year for Operation Christmas Child for the boxes that go out in December. Giving a child something handmade–something made with genuine love that they might know that someone else loves them so very very much–beyond what any of us could imagine…this is work that I want to do.
So join me and make a doll for a little boy or girl in Nicaragua. If you’re in need of some help, Craft Hope has some doll tutorials on their site, and if you’re lacking inspiration, check out their flickr group.
