Team Sherrie’s Secret Weapon REVEALED!

I know you have all been on pins and needles 🙂 waiting to hear what our secret weapon is.

Now

the

wait

is

over.

It’s LOVE.

As a group we decided that not only could we bless the lives of our friends and families this season, we could bless the lives of those in need.  We each chose a program/charity that was close and dear to our hearts and decided that we would donate what we could.     Here are just a few of the places we are donating:

Becky:

” Project Linus-  Some days I feel overly blessed with fabric and feel the need to do something good with it. Now I really want to do all of them. Maybe this is something we can do all year since our time is running shorter by the day.”

Monica- Blankies for Primary Children’s Hospital.

Leigh Ann:

“I will be donating two small flannel blankets to Project Linus – providing security through blankets. Their mission is two-fold – this is taken from their website:

First, it is our mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”

Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.”

Sherrie– Blankies for NICU in Logan.

Crissie:

“I will be making blankets for SHARE, a pregnancy and newborn loss organization, so that they can donate them to the appropriate places. If you don’t have a charity in mind or feel overwhelmed by your gift list like me, please consider these tiny little blankets. Here is their website:”

Autumn- Blankies for Jonathan’s Place

Molly:

“My DD, Amelie, nearly died last Dec 25/26 when she had a horrible reaction to getting the flu, even after getting a flu shot. It was a horrible and scary time for us. She was in the ICU for several days and was given several small Christmas presents that had been donated for kids in the hospital over the holidays. Those gifts really helped to brighten her time there. She still insists on having her “hospital blanket” and her purple soft bear, especially when she’s not feeling well. We had already talked about making at least a small donation to the hospital. They told us they are really in need of things for the 52 babies in intensive care and things for the older kids.”



We hope this will be a contagious thought.  We were inspired by YCMT’s Twirls for Girls as well as our own experiences with these amazing organizations.  What can you give back this season to those who have blessed your life?

    That is so nice that all of you have taken time during this busy time (and challenge!) to think of others. You have all made the holidays special for someone else and that is what the season is about. Good for all of you!

  2. How very, very kind of you all to think about such bigger things during this busy time!

    You are a good example to us all!

    THANK YOU!

  4. Awww–nice work, Team Sherrie! It’s getting drippy around here!

    Hugs,

  7. I love this direction. What a great idea. We gave to a child from the giving tree at Church – but I didn’t get time to sew for her . . . maybe next time. Thanks for the warm moment this morning.

    What a wonderful post! This year, my family did an auction instead of our usual white elephant to raise money for an uncle who has some sudden serious health issues. We decided that we will do the auction every year now and if no one in the family is in need- we will pick a charity to donate the money too!
