I was catching up on some blog reading today and came across a link to"Craft Hope". This organization came up with the wonderful idea of collecting handmade crafts to share with those that are less fortunate around the world. With their current (and first) project they are asking donations of handmade pillowcase dresses and/or shorts for the children of the Pan de Vida Shelter in Mexico and the Davis Lar Orphanage in Brazil. The deadline to send in donations is February 26th. I'm a little late to help with this one but am looking forward to whatever their next project may be.
