The Gift that Gives Comfort to Many
I'm calling all of you crafty mama's and caring people out there to make pillowcases for Conkerrcancer. Their goal is to give a bright cheery pillowcase to every seriously ill child in North America by 2012.
Ian received several of these pillow cases while in hospital, even though he has Von Willebrand's (a blood clotting disorder) and not cancer. And since he was admitted during the height of the H1N1 epidemic, Elly was not permitted to come visit him. So the kind volunteers gave her a pillowcase to match one her brother had been given. This made my kids feel closer together and miss each other a little less while apart.
Please, even if you aren't into sewing, the ConkerrCancer web page has super simple directions - Just check out the link below
