I Love

I Love -
Craft Hope projects.
For their current project, #11!, they're asking people to put together birthing kits for Haitian midwives to bring to new mothers.
Half of the kit is intended for the midwife's use during delivery - gloves, soap, a clean piece of plastic for the mother to lie down on, etc., and the balance of the kit is for the new baby and mama.My craft group got together on a couple of evenings and made tote bags, blankets and dollies, and we were able to assemble 5 kits for this worthy cause.
My Elder helped me put the final items together this morning, and we sent our box off in the mail today.
The deadline for this project is March 1, so you still have time to join in and do some good!

Those are awesome...we do baby care kits for Lutheran World Relief...but they'll need this before the baby...
