have you heard of the site craft hope? one of my favorite bloggers, ashley ann at under the sycamore did a post this morning about participating in the most recent craft hope project which reminded me of this sweet cause. their mission is to help crafters (like us) share handmade gifts w/ those who need them around the world. currently they are on project 12.
a few heartbreaking statistics:
- more than 1 million orphans are waiting for a home in russia.
- in russia, 60% of girl orphans become prostitutes and 70% of male orphans become hardened criminals.
i'm definitely on board - and since the rain won't go away ... i'll make good use of my couch time! and bonus: i'll share a little tutorial later this week w/ my bracelet of choice.
interested too? check out craft hope now! :)
