I have gotten several opportunities in my email box the past two days that I thought I'd pass on in case anyone is interested.

(for Japan)

(from a friend, from the Electric Quilt newsletter)

Our friend and EQ user, Japanese magazine editor Atsuko Ohta, has started a quilt project along with friends to make small quilts for the earthquake victims of Tohoku in Japan.

Here is an English website, giving details: http://shienquilt.tongtongquilt.com/?eid=3

Note they request quilts approximately 40" x 47" (1 m x 1.2 m) with flannel backing. Many will be for babies so no nylon thread, and no embellishments. Really simple quilts are perfect."

Mercy House Kenya is a new maternity home opening in Africa.  In the slums there, a lot of young women are going into prostitution as their only way to make money to feed themselves, and ending up pregnant.  The home will be providing medical care, etc. as well as training in some things they can make/do to make money safely.  (Full disclosure: This is a Christian organization.)  April's supply drive for them is craft supplies; check their website for the list of what they need. Oh, here's the list: thread, arge funky buttons, etc., jewelry supplies (jump rings, pins), white glue, soap molds, yarn, old calendars. http://themercyhousekenya.org/
