Contest:

In June and July we are focusing on charitable crafting! 

Charity is simply about meeting a need. There are so many needs in our great big world but we don’t need to fix the whole world to make a big difference. One act of kindness is more than enough if you are the one to receive it.
You must link to a project on your page and tell us who you donated to and any other interesting information you have to share. For instance, does this charity hold a special place in your heart for some reason?
Multiple entries are allowed but you may only win once.
Two prizes will be randomly drawn from qualified entries here. You must be a group member to win. Prizes are a skein of Anzula Breeze in the Candied Apple color, and the second prize is a knitting bag from On The Dock Knits on Etsy.

Bless your Heart:

Generous hands are blessed hands because they give bread to the poor.
Psalm 22:9
