I am honored to announce that I have received a grant from the Karma for Cara foundation!
Karma for Cara was founded by 21-year-old Cara Becker and her family while she was being treated for leukemia in 2012. I hope you will take some time to visit their website and learn about Cara, her legacy, and the foundation. www.karmaforcara.org
With the funds received from this foundation, I will be working on items that I will donate to local children’s hospitals in Philadelphia. I will be making bags (of course!) but will also be making homemade pillow cases and heart-shaped comfort pillows for children and teens who are in long-term hospital stays.
I am including a picture of an outer space themed heart pillow as a sample. Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for pictures of the items and updates on where they are being donated.
