This week's good cause of the week comes at the request of my husband. His company has a very active corporate charity committee (in fact, they just raised 30 thousand dollars for the 3-day walk for breast cancer) and he alerted me to the recent donation they made to this very deserving organization.
Tiny Stitches is a non-profit organization that provides basic clothing and other items for disadvantaged newborns in North Georgia. Their volunteers are those who are talented in sewing, knitting, and crocheting who want to use their hobby to make items for those in need. Tiny Stitches coordinates the distribution of supplies to volunteers who want to help but can't afford the materials and end products to those new families who need it.
I'm not one of those talented souls that can sew. However, my mom is great at it. As a child, I enjoyed many cool outfits and items made especially for me. Because Tiny Stitches donates all sorts of items (blankets, gowns, washcloths, bonnets, booties, quilts, bibs, burp cloths and sleepers), children born into poor, but loving homes are getting handmade items, made with love, that will be cherished in years to come.
Monetary donations to Tiny Stitches go toward the purchase of supplies. This enables talented people on fixed or limited incomes to use their gifts to create beautiful and useful items for others.
