One of the blogs, Confessions of a Fabric Addict that I found during the A-Z Challenge hosts a challenge each year called Hands2Help where quilters make and donate quilts to charities. The three charities featured this year are:
Layers of Hope Quilting 911 - Quilts are donated to victims of disasters.
Happy Chemo - This organization makes care packages that includes quilts for people who are getting chemo treatments.
Because You Matter - Quilts are given to children who are going through tough times so they have something to snuggle up to.
The Hands2Help page has more information about each of the 3 charities. Over the first 4 years they have been able to collect over 400 quilts for these organizations. The organizers have some prizes to give away to some of the quilters who participate. Sadly I didn't find out about this challenge until it was almost over so I am unable to participate this time but will definetely be part next year. It is great to see that so many people are willing to share their talents, time and money to people they have never met. I hope they meet their goals and enrich the lives of everyone who receives their generous gifts.
Have you ever been part of an online challenge like this?
