With Thanksgiving coming up fast we wanted to take the time to think about all the wonderful things we have in our lives to be thankful for. Our families, our friends, good health...too many to count! But we also know that there are others out there who are not as fortunate. So many people need a safe, warm place to rest their heads. That is why we are going to participate in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge (and we hope you will, too!).
The idea of the challenge is for crafters to make pillowcases and donate them to the charities that need them in their communities, in the hopes that 1 million will be donated in 2010. Their website has patterns you can use, or you can design your own - we'll be sure to post the ones we make!. They also have lists of possible charities that you might want to send your completed pillowcases to.
A pillowcase is such a quick and simple project, but sometimes it's the simplest things that can mean so much. Because in this time where we remembering all the things we have to be thankful for, it is also important to remember those who need a little help.
