I’ve written many blog posts over the last year or so with most of them containing free patterns. I love that I can share these patterns with all of you and hope you’ve enjoyed them, but this blog post is probably the most meaningful one I’ve written or may ever write. You see, yesterday I received a very important and special letter from a gentleman from California. He didn’t have to write me. I would have never known any different if he hadn’t…..but he did.
Every month my ELK Studio – From the Heart charity chooses different organizations where we will send hats, scarves, mittens, etc. In the month of April we chose Crochet for Cancer, the San Francisco chapter where cancer patients received our hats. When I decided to start my charity organization, I spoke with the women in my ELK Studio crocheters Facebook group. Many of them joined me and have been faithful to give every month. I can’t tell you what it means to me to have the privilege to give back but instead let me show you why we do what we do. My heart is over-filled with joy and talk about a humbling experience.
If I’ve ever wanted anything to go viral, it would be this letter from a man fighting for his life but still took the time to say thanks. (So share everywhere!) What a testimony to his character and he truly is someone special. I pray he receives his miracle of healing.
I want the world to know that YOU can make a difference in the life of a person. It only takes a small act of kindness too. I told Tracy, the co-founder of Crochet for Cancer, yesterday about the letter. I love something she said and want to share it with you. “I think it’s the compassion behind the cap that makes such an impact in someone’s journey.” Those word couldn’t be more true! If you’ve never given, do it! It doesn’t have to be my charity but any local organization within your community. You’ll be glad you did.
Have a great day. Be blessed.
