Operation Christmas Child!
I think you may have guessed by my posts this week that I have been thinking about various charities.
I love sprinkling Charity work amongst my other woolly escapades.
I have totally given up on the idea that I can make any money out of my creations.
I am hopeless at taking pennies from friends, even if they have asked me for something specific.
Craft Fairs are interesting places I find!
By their very nature they attract "crafty" people who actually like making things themselves so in general it is more a chance for everyone to get new ideas rather than buy other peoples items.
So another Charity I love to support is Operation Christmas Child.
When I taught the "littlies" they loved filling the boxes and we used to send off nearly 100 from school!
Now, I like to help Janet or "Puppet Lady!"
She does an amazing job and sets herself the challenge of making 100 puppets every year!
She has recently taken on a supervisory role and welcomes every item that is sent to her!
So, if you fancy popping into either Operation Christmas Child's website or Janet at Musings of The Puppet Lady you may find a little something which will inspire you to join in the fun!
And, you can be sure that amongst all the commercialism that can surround our celebrations your donation will make a child so happy at Christmas.
