I follow a blog call CraftHope. This organization was started by Jade Sims out of Austin Texas. CraftHope inspires others to use crafting as a way to spread hope and love to others in a way that only a handmade gift can.
I love to sew and craft! There...I said it. When I was younger, I was embarrassed by this part of me. I thought if I wasn't some famous fashion designer, my love for sewing was kind of dorky! I have long outgrown that embarrasment, thank goodness. I also love to share this passion with others, so I started having "craft days" at my house every couple of months. I found the crafthope website and my craft days soon turned into "craftivism days". So when we gather together as friends to craft and hangout, we add in the component of helping others. This month we made baby deliver kits for Haiti. It is amazing to me that only a few items can make the difference between a safe and unsafe delivery for someone without access to medical care.
