craft hope: project 8

Craft Hope
Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

I recently came across an awesome blog called Craft Hope and they feature a craft project that anyone can join in to help out a cause in need.  How cool is that?  Their most recent project is Project 8 and it's helping the gulf coast oil spill.  There are some awesome organizations helping to clean off the oil from the animals on the gulf and they are in need of lots wash rags and hand towels.  You can go here for more information if you want to join in.  What an easy way to help!   So this week I went through our closets and grabbed some of our many unused tees (we went to a university that handed out a tee for everything!!) and tore them apart cutting them down to 10x10 squares.  Super easy and hey we gained some more closet space too. 

Now they're ready to mail off.  I hope you'll join in too.

Thank you for posting this. I haven't been a reader of yours for long, but I do enjoy your posts. I grew up in the panhandle of Florida and the thought of the devastation that is occurring there saddens me. Thank you for giving me a completely doable way to help out.
