Service Sunday

Today's service opportunity is with an organization called ConKerr Cancer. They have been making, collecting and donating bright, cheery, fun pillowcases to sick children in hospitals since 2002. They have a lofty goal of giving a pillowcase to every seriously ill child in America by 2012, and we can help!! For more information, visit their website HERE.

A great tutorial for sewing the pillowcases can be found HERE. If you don't sew, crochet a pretty border or embroider on a pre-made pillowcase. Or, if you're not crafty, you can donate money.

Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most, and I'm sure fun pillowcases go a long way in making sick children feel just a little bit happier, and that's a good thing :)

**Also, if you're interested in making/donating things to Lua Nova, please let me know. I'm making baby blankets and Candida is crocheting the most adorable baby shoes (thank you!!!). Money/time permitting I'd also like to make some ring slings for the new moms to carry their new babys around and help promote bonding. We have until Christmas, so let me know :)

Happy Sunday!

what are ring slings?

They're similar to the slings that we made for Elena and Natalie, but they have two rings at the shoulder that you feed the fabric through so that the size is adjustable. Here's a link to one:
