Friday Find: Greyson's Gift- Crafters Needed!
The woman behind Greyson's Gift explains it best:
"I am looking for your help. Hospitals all across the country are in need of small, very small, baby blankets. In cases of fetal demise, babies are so tiny, even the smallest nursery blanket is much too big to wrap around their tiny bodies.
I know how parents feel when they are presented with their tiny baby, for the first and last time. Having to deal with a large blanket that doesn't fit, is a distraction. And, unnecessary.
If you can sew or crotchet/knit, would you please help me to supply blankets for these mothers?
My doctor informed me that 30% of all pregnancies end in fetal demise!"
I came across a fellow blogger who found this service project, her name is Kari over at UCreate.
I know that I usually post my Friday Finds about a crafter, or website, but this week I felt that this charitable service project was definitely post-worthy!
This woman's story is one that, for some, is all too close to home, and yet for others, they can't even imagine. I fall into the can't even imagine category, and I am thankful continually for that. But, for all those women who have had to go through something like this, I just want to say, you are amazing and strong!
