Want to knit or crochet or sew some warm hats and scarves for children? Or if you aren't the crafty type, want to buy a set of hat and mittens or donate money so we can buy them for you to give?
Rancho 3M is an orphanage in Mexico just outside of Juarez. Juarez is the deadliest city in Mexico with drug cartel violence. Some of these children are true orphans who witnessed one or both parents killed brutally. Others parents are drug addicts, prostitutes or in prison. Friends of mine live and work in the orphanage and I have made arrangements for Ehellions to donate hat and scarf or hat and mittens set for each child. I'm told it gets very cold in the winter down there so the idea of a gift of warm hats and scarf/mittens was received with a lot of enthusiasm.
Check out the "Extending the hand of kindness" folder and its RANCHO 3M subfolder for more information and instructions on how to donate. I can match you up to a specific child with their favorite color.
Closing date for this project is December 15, 2010.
