Wrapping Seniors in Love for the Holidays
Here's a community campaign to provide blankets to seniors in Nursing Homes. The woman that started this is truly amazing.

Handmade lap blankets needed for Seniors in Nursing Homes on the Eastside (king County) in Washington during the Holiday Season!

Can a simple act of kindness change one person's life? - Yes it can!
Many seniors in nursing homes are alone, without family and without some holiday cheer. Please help us make a difference in the lives of Seniors in Washington Nursing Homes, by donating a hand knitted or crocheted wrap (lap blanket) as a holiday gift to Acknowledge, Remember and Honor them during the holiday season

Deadline: December 10th
Size: no larger than 5 x 5 ft
Colors preferred: Warm colors – no black please
Must be machine washable!

Blankets can be sent directly to
Makaylaa Powers
Visiting Angels
903 5th Ave Ste 201, Kirkland WA 98033

For More Information Contact: Makaylaa Powers at Visiting Angels (425) 828-4500 or email makaylaa@eastsideangels.com

Forever Warm was created to provide parents of stillborn children with a blanket that they can wrap their children in for pictures and/or burial. Parents are also given the choice to keep the blanket as a personal keepsake to remember their child.
We now donate to NICUs as well as OB wards. I'm currently in the process of recruiting hospitals in the Greater Indianapolis Area for my local chapter. Included in this list is Riley Children's Hospital Level III Nicu and the St. Vincent Women's Hospital OB and NICU wards.

I plan on making my next donation in December 2009 and then again in March 2010. I donate to the hospitals in person. If you would like to donate a blanket please pm me. Thank you

Buffalo Head Huggers - chemo caps
HI Everyone! I just started a local chapter of Head Huggers - Buffalo Head Huggers. We knit, crochet & sew chemo caps for people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatment, burns, surgeries of other injuries. Please visit our website at http://www.buffaloheadhuggers.webs.com and help someone keep warm and feel loved with a chemo cap you've personally made for them!

Thank you so much!!
~ Missy
