Crafting a Rainbow of Hope is a Project created by Mistie Bush to organize the contribution of crocheted items to local Texas Charities and Organizations. Some of the places the crocheted items have been donated to are:
Methodist Hospital and MD Anderson
April’s Featured Charity:
Cancer and Hematology Centers of Texas Children’s Hospital
There are several ways you can help support this charity. We invite crocheters, knitters, and quilters from around the world to create and donate hats (all sizes), light weight scarves, and lap size blankets. These items will go to patients of all ages to help keep them cozy and feeling cherished. One small item can make a big difference to these patients.
Texas Children’s Hospital patients range in age from newborn to older teens and their family members. Homemade (crochet, knit, or sew), blankets and quilts. Hand sewn, crochet, or knit items such as teddy bears, gingerbread men, and a number of items that may assist with long term patient care. All items must be new for infection control purposes. If a message is included, it should be light hearted and bright such as “Bringing You Sunshine” or You’re a Great Kid” DO NOT say “Get Well Soon”.
Donations information and mailing instructions are available here: Ways to Give
