Crafty Giving Girls

Emily has a passion to help the children in Thailand with mental and physical disabilities get the services and opportunities that will enrich their lives. Julia is her friend who shares the same passion. Julia LOVES the orphaned women and girls who spend their lives in the wards there. All she wants to do with her life is to be there for them. Emily wants to help her be there.
We recently spent an evening helping Emily put together corsages and bracelets with every single penny of the sale going to help Julia stay in Thailand. Not only is this helping Julia help others, it's also an environmental bonus. She has been using left over material I have been hoarding for years.
My great Aunt Ruth took apart her old worn out slips and saved all of the lace and gave me a lot of it many years ago. I have used bits of it on several projects. Now it is going towards Julia. I know that would make her happy as she donated so much of her own money through the years towards missions all around the world.

Your Great Aunt Ruth would be surprised that her old lace was going to help Julia in missions. I'm sure your Great Aunt Ruth would be pleased. Westfield Mom
