You guys are great. Yes you are. Keep up your excellent making and fundraising. BUT:
We need to be making beautiful things to donate directly to these families too. Lots of nice things are needed. Get sewing. Get printing. Get stitching. Get hammering.
Handmade quilts and bed linens
Knitted and crocheted blankets
Handmade table-cloths and napkins
Handmade Jewellery and Accessories
Knitted and crocheted winter clothing
Hot Water Bottles with Covers
Handmade Kitchen Linens
You get the idea....?!
Anything lovely that you make (or someone you know could make) would be a perfect donation for a family or person who has lost everything. We want these people to know that we were thinking of them - and making plans for their comfort and happiness - in the long term.
Keep donating money, of course - but let's make a plan to get some special new things into the homes of those that are rebuilding or resettling.
