You are probably wondering what I am talking about. The organization is called "For Jamie's Sake" Please read their mission statement on their website.
Their services include:
Please go to their website and read more about it. So I had this on my mind the biggest part of the morning. I kept wondering, "what can I do to help?" I got back on their website and saw their WISHLIST. I saw that they give pillows to all of the children that are in foster care. Pillows and pillowcases were on the wishlist. So this is where WE can help! I would love to donate a ton of pillowcases to them. Of course, I can't make a million on my own and I'm not asking for a million.......only 100. With your help we could easily donate 100 pillowcases to be distributed to these children. I spoke with the lady over this and she said they would greatly accept our donation. I've noticed even with my own children that a quilt or even a special pillow can comfort them when they are feeling a little down and give them a sense of security.
So, if you would like to help, please contact me through email. layne1142 (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Any amount of pillowcases would be greatly appreciated, it doesn't matter if it is 1 or 15. As of right now I would like to set a deadline of October 31st. I will deliver them myself with documentation with the names of the people that donate.
Here's all of the information that you may need:
Deadline: October 31st, 2012
Pillowcases to fit a standard size pillow
There are so many free pillowcase tutorials out there, they are very quick and easy to make.
Please use fabrics that would be suitable for children of all ages.
Please press before shipping them.
If you are interested in helping, please email me and let me know "approximately" how many you plan on donating and your name. I will give you my mailing address so you will know where to ship them.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS IF YOU WOULD LIKE.
Thank you so very much!
