Iraqi Bundles of Love

Every once in awhile a special project or event arises that speaks to me. I learned about one this morning. Iraqi Bundles of Love aims to provide all kinds of sewing, knitting and fiber supplies to families and sewing cooperatives in Iraq.

And thanks to Sew, Mama, Sew! I was able to help out effectively and quickly. This was perfect for me - a busy mom that wants to help, now, but isn't able to put together a box and get to the post office all while caring for young kids at home. This project is normally something that I would have learned about, wanted to participate in, but probably wouldn't of been able to.

I would have talked about it with a friend or two, mentioned it to my husband, and maybe tried to gather a few things for a package during a nap time. But getting it all together and in the mail? I probably wouldn't of made it that far on my own. This initiative is wonderful. Thank you Sew, Mama, Sew! for leveraging my giving and helping me help others.

The folks at Sew, Mama, Sew! have put together a number of these packages and you can purchase your own here too.
