It Takes a Village

Our internet communities have become just as important as our geographic ones these days. People can reach across continents in a split second and touch each other with their words or images.

I often find myself searching for inspiration on the world wide web, after the children go to bed. It is my time to connect with people and refresh my creativity. The other night, while reading a Blog I frequent, I came across a call for help. For action. For Love.

Dana over at MADE wrote about her involvement with the Craft Hope
Pillowcase project. It is a wonderful cause benefiting
children with cancer.

Being a Mom, and someone who sews, I couldn’t just sit this one out. I am working on putting a package together to donate to ConKerr Cancer. This group distributes fun, happy pillowcases to terminally ill children. They have made a huge difference in the lives of so many already. To bring a smile and some small happiness to a family going through something so heart-wrenching, is one of the most important and integral parts of being human. To show compassion. We are nothing without it.

If anyone in Kitsap County would like to join me, leave a comment here with your email address and we can coordinate our efforts.

By using our internet community, we can make a difference in the world we live in!
