Craft Hope Project #12 {Bracelets for Orphans}

Have you heard of the book Craft Hope?

 Craft Hope: Handmade Crafts for a Cause

Although I don't physically own the book, I've been hanging out over on their blog for quite some time now.

What they are doing is AMAZING.
And I want US to join up with them.
{We are all a part of this BETTER LIFE Bag community, after all!  And I want to make lives better with you.}

Every few months or so Craft Hope introduces a new handmade craft project to send somewhere where there is a need.

For example:
One time they got everyone to make pillowcases for terminally ill kids in hospitals... you know, so they would have beautiful pillowcases behind their precious heads.

Another time they made red scarves to give to foster kids who have "aged out" of the system and were heading to college.

Once they made beanbags with letters, numbers, colors, etc... for a school in Liberia.

This month they are making bracelets to give to orphans in Russia.
You can read more about the current project here.

So, join me, will you?
 I made a bunch of these last night using THIS tutorial.

They were totally easy.

And totally fun.


You can do that right?

If you choose to join me, here are the requirements:
Bracelets can be any form of handmade {fabric, beads, hemp, etc...}.
Deadline is June 15th, 2011.

Make as many as you can and mail completed bracelets to:
Carin Vogelzang
630 Griswold SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49507
If you make some and send them to Carin {who will then send them off to Russia}, leave a comment here letting me know!

{and I'd LOVE to SEE your creations, too!}

Let's join together to make lives better!
