Hi y'all. I wanted to share an organization I just found that you might be interested in. Its called Enchanted Makeovers- "Transforming Shelters for Women and Children from Surviving to Thriving Spaces". They go in and makeover homeless shelters to make them a little more homey and more livable.You can find their website here: http://www.enchantedmakeovers.org/

They have a couple projects going on: doll adoption, time project, and capes for kids.

The Doll project "provides children in shelters with beautiful handmade dolls donated by crafters from around the globe."The project page is http://enchantedmakeovers.org/category_37/Doll-Adoption.htm and provides a couple pattern suggestions if you need one.

The Time Project is for knitted or crocheted lap blankets in specific colors but any patterns. You can read more about how this came about at http://enchantedmakeovers.org/category_35/The-Time-Project.htm

The story behind Capes for Kids is enough to bring you to tears. They are looking for capes to enocourage kids to hold on to hope and realize they are superheros. You can find the pattern and information at http://enchantedmakeovers.org/category_36/Capes-For-Kids.htm

I think this is a really sweet cause and I hope my fellow craftsters will join me in helping these women and children feel a little more human!

All donations should be sent to:
