I have participated in several projects so far, from making bracelets to embellishing flip flops. Each and every project has gone to benefit a worthwhile cause, helping those less fortunate then us. My most favorite projects were Project 17: Aprons for Haiti and Project 23, which was pillowcase dresses for girls in Africa. Both of these projects allowed me to express my personality through my craft, but it was an opportunity for me to offer something beautiful and useful for those who need it most.
We don’t do this for the personal gain, and like many who sew & craft, we do this for the pure joy of helping our fellow man. We use the talents God gave us to give bit of joy to others, to let them know people care and most of all, to offer a ray of hope when all seems hopeless.– Jowanda K. Wiseman
