HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Children create craft donations which we give to children in hospitals all over the world to help spread cheer.

DESCRIPTION

Create handicrafts/artwork  for children in hospitals overseas. Remote learning is a great time to be creative and ANY crafts are appreciated.

Of course, you can create anything you would like using any materials at all. Volunteers have sewed and stuffed felt hearts, made origami, picture books, ceramic necklaces, painted rocks and cut-out paper hearts. 
 
So far, we have delivered crafts made from kids of all ages to Mongolia, India, China, Thailand, the UK, Italy, and Israel.

ITEMS NEEDED

Craft supplies, box or large envelope to ship your crafts.
