Think Bigger: ConKerr Cancer

Here's another sewing craft charity:  ConKerr Cancer.  They distributed brightly patterned, happy pillowcases to seriously ill children in hospitals around the world.   Their pillowcases bring smiles to children who don't have a lot to smile about in their lives.  It's just a little bit of hope and love to brighten up their hospital room and the children respond.  Do take a minute to read the "about us" page on their website with thank yous from families whose children have received a pillowcase.   It will make you start thinking about that stash of cottons you have sitting in your cupboard waiting for the "right" project.   I hope this is the right project for you.

I also want to just quickly remind you that the QLD Flood Relief project is still underway.   You still have time to buy something from an Etsy store or buy a raffle ticket or bid in an auction or just plain donate.   The master list of those participating is up at Make it Perfect.   I've bought a raffle ticket for a beautiful hand crafted item.  Have you?
