Shriners Hospital Donations are dropped off!

I am so excited to report that all of the items made and collected as a part of my Summer of Service project for Shriners Hospital were dropped off yesterday!

Thanks to some help from my American Sewing Guild friends, I met my goal and delivered 100 handmade drawstring bags!

Also, thanks to the incredibly generous donations of so many of you, I was able to donate over 200 other toys,  games, books, electronics, gift cards, etc. to the children at this amazing hospital.

Check out the photos in the gallery below!

While I was there, I met Joy, a woman who works for the hospital.  Joy took my mom, my grandma, my grandpa, and me on a behind the scenes tour that was amazing! I saw many of the ways they help kids at Shriners, all without cost to the patients.  I am just so happy that all of these items will be given to these wonderful kids.

Thank you all for your support of Buddee Bags, keep an eye out for my next project coming this fall!

Project Update – Help still needed!

Happy August!

My project for Shriners Hospital is still going strong. As I said before, it is my goal to make 100 drawstring bags for the children there and to fill them with the most requested items from the hospital wishlist.

Thanks to some amazing support from my grandmom and my friends in the American Sewing Guild, I now have 80 bags! You can see some of them in the pictures below.

Also, thanks to the generous donations I have received so far, we have many items from the wishlist including some new board games, Phillies/Eagles clothing, earbuds, DVDs and arts and crafts projects.

There is still time to help! I will be making the delivery on August 25. I could still use the following items, or monetary donations which will allow me to purchase the items:

Batteries (AAA, C and D)
Itunes gift cards ($15 or less)
Walmart/Target gift cards ($15 or less)
MDonald’s gift cards ($15 or less)
Card games
Baseball caps and T-shirts with professional/college logos (Adult L, XL, XXL)

Thank you for your continued support!
