Would anyone be interested in a helping others craftalong? I know there are lots of sites where you can make things to be sent to people who need them, operation christmas child, post pals etc... so, this is just a gauge of interest atm, so no month by month plan, just to see if anyone is interested, and if anyone knows the names of any more sites please. Also we could have one month where we craft for ill friends/ relatives....

Ooh, I'm just filling up my operation christmas child box. We could also make chemo caps and christmas gifts for under the charity tree at the mall.

eugh. Britan must be so selfish, i can only find about 2 of this kind of thing in the uk, and i think it would be a little pointless for me to send to the US. I dont mind setting out a schedule for those of you in the US tho if it is wanted.

If you want to make chemo caps or even cute fleece hats in child sizes, your local oncology ward will LOVE to have them donated. Especially in child sizes, because wearing a knit cap is soooo cancer, when you're young.

Sept - Operation christmas child boxes or similar

i'm sure there are lots of things that just aren't online! i've done a lot of local stuff around christmas, like making stockings and stuffed toys, and i know they aren't online. and there's lots of other things you can do too - is there a homeless shelter near you? we made fleece blankets one year for a youth shelter in vancouver, and they were greatly appreciated. women's shelters might be interested in stuff, you could call them up and ask what their clients often need, whether that's homemade pads, blankets, toys for kids, whatever.
