I just received my Crafts ‘n things October issue and read a couple of articles on Crafting for a Cause which I thought were excellent ideas!
The first article was written by Barbara Housener and it’s called “Operation Write Home.” This is a non-profit organization that was started in 2007 by Founder and President, Sandy Allnock. “Operation Write Home” helps our military keep in touch with their families by sending them handmade cards which the soldiers then send them home to their loved ones with a personal note. To learn more visit www.operationwritehome.org
The second article was written by Lynn Roberts, titled “Journals of Love for Cancer Patients.” This idea was started by Shirley Nagel who made a journal for her sister-in-law who had cancer to help her keep track of medications, doctor appointments and questions. It would be great to make and distribute handmade journals to cancer patients in your area!
I hope these stories inspire you to start your own Crafting for a Cause.
