Got Thumbs Up on Crochet & Flannel Baby Items

Blogged under Charity Crafting by Tammy on Friday 29 May 2009 at 12:41 pm

I finally got everything finished, washed, and packed for the hospital donation, and I delivered the goods a few days ago. I ended up making 9 flannel baby blankets, 10 crochet bootie/hat sets, and 4 crocheted baby hats. I heard from a hospital volunteer today who said they brought everything up to the OBGYN department, and they were thrilled with my donation, shew! I know it sounds weird, but I was a little concerned that maybe they wouldn’t be up to snuff.

I have a few friends who said they may be interested in helping out too, so we’ll see how that goes. While I plan to continue with the various charities I donate for now, I hope to keep this up some as well. I realize there are needs all over the world, but I think it’s important to also remember those who live in my own backyard as well. At least in my area, there are a lot of families in need, especially with the way the economy is hitting everyone now. Just last week I read in the newspaper that at least half of the students in public schools in my county are considered living at what is considered “poverty” level, which I was pretty surprised to read.
