Crafting With A Cause, Part 2

If you read my last post, “Crafting With A Cause, Part 1”, you know that I am now looking for craft challenges that benefit good causes. Well, I found another one. This one was sponsored by Stephanie Montgomery whose YouTube name is 2muchhurt. Her husband just finished his treatments for cancer. Stephanie wanted to make little “kits” for people still receiving treatments that would make their day a little brighter. As she just turned 39 years old, she decided to name her challenge Forever 39. Her goal was to receive 39 “kits” that she could take to the cancer center where her husband received his treatments. Here is what I made for my “kits”.

I made embellished paper pouches and then filled them with the goodies you see. Then the whole pouch was sealed in a plastic bag for protection.

Stephanie, like Beth in my last post, also collects ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). So I made her this one.

If you would like to see Stephanie’s YouTube video where she opens my box, you can see it here.

She shows my entries from minutes 6:45 to 11:56. Sadly, the post office looks like they played football with my kits, but I emailed Stephanie and she assured me she put them back together neatly.

That is the second challenge I have participated in. I can’t tell you how good it feels to make items for people I don’t even know, both the items for the challenges and the ATCs for the challenge hosts.

So if you love to craft, take some time and search YouTube for a challenge that strikes your fancy. You too can craft for a cause!
