A Christmas giving project


I like to give things and so when I recently saw that Dee was running a programme to give handmade dolls to kids in need I asked to join in. Read about that here.

Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon doing some hand-sewing, getting my kittens ready for their new homes - they're all going to children with medical issues that mean several trips to hospital and time away from home and family. Lots of these kids are really young so I hope their new kittens will keep them brave or at least offer some comfort.

In the bustle of Christmas as we prepare gifts and shop and go to well- catered Christmas parties I think it's worthwhile to take time to consider those who need a hand up. If you're ever going to give then now is a good time - a donation, a tin for the Foodbank at the supermarket, some home-baking for someone you know has had a rough year.

It's not hard. But call it giving, not giving back because the world doesn't owe you anything.

P.S. If you're coming to the Craft Country Fair this Saturday then an easy way to give is to bring a can for the local Foodbank - we'll have a collection point at the door.
