If you follow me at all maybe on my sister blog, ELK Studio – Handcrafted Crochet Designs, you know that I have a heart for charity. I actually started a charity about a year ago called ELK Studio – From the Heart and we have an awesome group of people who love to crochet and donate their projects!
Now onto the highlight of the blog post. I haven’t met Tracy from Crochet for Cancer face to face but have had the pleasure of speaking with her on several different occasions. I actually designed a summer hat this year called Southern Comfort in honor of all the chemo patients in need. You see it was when her mom was diagnosed with cancer and she received some hats that Tracy felted called to “do something”. She said she wanted to, ” Give back… help someone else like we were helped. So began our journey making and donating hats, scarves and lap blankets to cancer patients.” I’m sorry to say that Tracy’s mom lost her battle to cancer this year but so proud of Tracy for continuing on this wonderful journey of ensuring chemo patients have their needs met.
Her organization is growing by leaps and bounds with chapters starting and developing all over the United States. If you would like to find out more about Tracy and her organization, you can read all about her journey on her WEBSITE and follow her on FACEBOOK.
I appreciate all the hard work it takes to keep an organization like this running. I can only pray that she and all the wonderful crocheter and knitters continue to bless others with their talents.
If you’ve never donated, you should try it. I’m sure there is some local organization that would love your projects, or contact one of the local Crochet for Cancer chapters for more information.
Have a great day. Be blessed.
