|Filled Children's Tote Bags|
I work everyday on a project or two for WOCS and because of that, one of my granddaughters who is 10 is now working with me when she can. And she is excited! She lost her favorite 12 year old cousin Tawyna to cancer 2 years ago and now she is creating pillows for WOCS in memory of Tawnya to be delivered to the children's hospital where we live.
Because of the joy we are all able to bring to someone's life, we at World of Charity Stitching are putting out a call to everyone to make this a Year of Giving. If each of us were to make items for adults and children in hospitals, nursing homes, domestic violence shelters, Ronald McDonald House, or someplace you know in your area, think of how many smiles we could create. We would, of course, love to have you create for us, but if that is not possible, please create something special for someone in your area. Wondering what to make? Visit our Flickr Photostream to get some ideas. Leave a comment if you have questions. We'd love to be a part of your giving!
