Global Youth Service Day 2021

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the sunshine! I am happy to announce my project for Global Youth Service Day, which is April 23-25, 2021.

This year, I am partnering with Fostering Hope PA to provide items for children in foster care. There are several ways to get involved and I hope you’ll join me in supporting this great organization! I will be collecting handmade pillowcases, drawstring bags, and wishlist items from now until April 25. If you’d like to donate, please reach out to me and we can arrange to do a pick-up!

  1. Handmade pillow cases – Children often enter foster care with just the clothes on their back. A special, handmade pillowcase that they can take with them will hopefully provide some comfort in a challenging time.
  2. Drawstring bags and related items for Bags of Hope – Bags of Hope are small, drawstring backpacks, filled with basic items the children can use such as toiletries, nightlights, activity books, diapers, wipes, etc. Creating Bags of Hope is a simple way to comfort a child entering foster care and offer quick “emergency” items to the foster family for those last-minute calls/placements. 
  3. Fostering Hope has also requested outside toys and items as the weather is getting nicer. Please visit the wishlist I created, or feel free to shop for any other items you think the kids might like!

Thanks as always for all of your support. I look forward to being able to provide many of these items to Fostering Hope thanks to your support.
