Are you crafty? Do you sew, crochet, knit, use a glue gun? Do you shop?
Seriously people, how can you say no to all of the above??
Well, whatever your area of expertise, your action is required.
My girlfriend Chinamommy is having a hat drive for orphans in China. You can read more about that here. The rules are pretty loose, but I think one thing to clarify when we say "hat" we mean something that is toboggan style, not a Harley Davidson ballcap. You understand? You can make the hat yourself, or if your hat making skills are sub-par (that would be me), you can purchase a hat to donate.
Come on friends, I've seen these cute little hats at the Dollar Tree so keep your eyes open. I mean, it's only summer and 90 degrees out so the stores will be having the fall items out soon. But seriously, get a toboggan from the DT, maybe embellish it with something super cute. Ooh, project!! All sizes of hats, from baby to teen, are accepted. I will get clarification on the type of hats that she is looking for since all sizes are being taken. UPDATE: I got a confirmation from chinamommy that because it can get cold in the orphanages, she is taking donations of hats that are fluffy and warm. Just like your heart will feel after you make your donation. :)
Just look at how excited these guys are! Below is a pic of some of the hats that chinamommy sent last year. Doesn't it just warm your heart? :)
