I love to tell people about the efforts of crafters who are using their gifts to help those in need. That’s why I was so excited to find Craft Hope.
“Craft Hope is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those who need them. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world.”
My kind of people. They have organized quilt making efforts for Haiti Relief via Doctors Without Borders and the victims of the recent tornado disasters here in the US. They recently conducted an outreach project creating bracelets for Russian orphans. I love, love the idea of sending love in the form of fun, usable, and functional items to those in need. This is one effort I definitely plan to get involved with. Here are some photos from CraftHope.com.
