Project 8 ~ The Response Is Great!
There have been so many visits to this blog from the Project 8 ~ Kids Can Help Too! article. It makes me really happy to see how well things are going.
Craft Hope, the visionaries behind Project 8, reported this morning that this is their largest project to date. As of today, they have received 15,173 hand towels.
"We have thousands of people organizing, collecting, and making towels. Corporations stepping in and setting up collections. We are partnering with nonprofits around the globe to collect and make towels to help clean the marine life."
This morning a package of washcloths left my house on its way to Pensacola, Florida. It seems like a small offering, but when it comes together with the rest of the donations, I know it will help to make a difference. That's the power of people uniting their efforts toward a common cause.
There are so many people who care about the disaster in the Gulf and want to help. I want to thank Craft Hope again for this inspired project and for providing the rest of us with a way to get involved!
They will be accepting donations until the end of August. Send your handmade washcloths and hand towels to:
