Faith In Humanity Restored
I don’t post much on this blog that isn’t fanfic unless its reposted, but this one has been sitting in my mind.
I met a really sweet lady at work yesterday.
She was a cancer patient who had just finished chemo, and she said that your hair falls out very soon after starting chemo. She told me that the treatment center she went to had a whole wall full of handmade hats that people donated to the patients, but she soon learned that not many of them were very good. They were made with itchy yarn or the stitches would be too loose and not keep your head warm. She then began making her own, knowing what kind of materials and patterns a patient would need. She made some for the nurses and the general collection and she intends to make more to donate to the other patients.
I also get customers very often, usually older ladies, who are making quilts and blankets to donate to hospitals and nursing homes and churches.
I really want to do something like this. Make hats or scarves or something to donate. I just don’t know what to make or where it would go.
