In the spirit of the holiday season and of Craft Hope, I am excited to announce Project 19 :: Dolls, Animals, and Monsters. Oh My!
Hurricane Sandy unrelentlessly ravaged the northeastern United States coast. Claiming lives, homes, and HOPE. Most of us helplessly watched the news. I, personally, have many many friends in that area of the country and my sister lives in New York City. I kept contact with her until her power went out and then stayed out for days on end. That feeling of helplessness consumed many of us. In the spirit of spreading HOPE, I am proud to announce that our newest project will benefit those who lost the most.
So for Project 19, we will be collecting handmade softies — dolls, animals, sock monkeys, monsters, you name it — for kids who live in the northeastern United States who experienced this devastation.
There aren’t too many requirements for this one. Just make sure they are handmade and be creative! I envision piles of little monsters, robots, dolls, and monkeys. This is also a great project to get kids involved with this holiday season.
The deadline will be January 10 and of course the deadline is flexible. Each and every donation will be delivered to a child who needs them most.
Go on, gather your groups and your friends and start stitching little eyeballs and ears. Of course, for those of you who knit/crochet your creations are welcome as well!
We have two collection locations for now. Two amazing friends that have stepped up and offered up their doorsteps to collect all of the donations. You can mail to either location as they will be delivered all around the north east.
You can mail them to:
43 Race St.
Nutley, NJ 07110
20 Premier Dr.
Londonberry, NH 03053
