Do you remember the Thanksgiving post revealing the need for handmade blankets? Christine Barker wrote, “These are all things a child in foster care does not get to experience. Like the women in the Middle East everything they own, everything familiar is taken away from them when they are moved from place to place. To have something made especially for them is unheard of. Material things take on new meaning when nothing belongs to you. “
KHC member, Deniese Jaskulsky, began a campaign to fit the need to give these special, and much loved, children a personal item that belongs to only them. For children who don’t have much in the terms of personal possessions or people loving them in a personal way, these handmade blankets speak volumes of love!
Well, let’s say you agreed with all that, but don’t know how to crochet… Well, what if you’ve always wanted to learn! Friend, this is your time!
Deniese Jaskulsky is hosting a “Crochet/Knitting Night” on January 17th from 7pm-9pm and she, and others, will teach you how to crochet/knit! (I don’t usually yell at people through bold and italic font, but I’m really excited about this!)
Mark this date on your calendar, contact Deniese Jaskulsky at email@example.com, and be the hands of Jesus as you learn to make, give, and love.
And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward. Matthew 10:42
