Happy Fall everyone! Yesterday, I had an opportunity to participate in a fundraiser for Unite for HER. This incredible organization supports women as they fight breast cancer by providing healing therapies such as nutrition, massage, and acupuncture.
I really love the mission of this organization, and I wanted to do something to help. So, during the month of October I will be sewing comfort pillows for mastectomy patients. These heart shaped pillows can be used under the arm while sleeping, sitting in the car, and more. I will also be making chemo head scarfs, which are made of comfortable, beautiful fabrics that will be donated to women in need of them.
So how can you help? Sewing help is always welcome! As with all my projects, my awesome Grandmom, Alice, will be willing to make up kits for you so that you can sew items – just let us know if you need one (or a few!).
Not a sewer? You can still help. The biggest need for this project will be pillow stuffing. Donations of stuffing or gift cards/money to buy stuffing are greatly appreciated. Fabric donations are always welcome too.
Thanks everyone! Let’s see how many items we can make to support these amazing women!
