Do Something!

Craft Hope is at it again! I’m completely in love with their new project! It’s time for us to do our part in helping with the oil spill. I have sat back for over a month now and felt totally helpless, along with being so angry but now I’m pumped and eager to help… but I need your help too!

Craft Hope has teamed with The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies “to assist them in their efforts in caring for and cleaning oiled marine mammals, mostly dolphins and sea turtles.”

What they need is very simple, “hand towels and wash rags to clean all of the nooks and crannies of the dolphins and sea turtles. They only need small hand towels and wash rags, no large towels please.” They are asking for sets of 10 or 20. And also Dawn dish washing liquid.

This project doesn’t have to be fancy, since the towels will be used about 2 times and then thrown away. You can knit them, crochet them, sew them, buy them, (and maybe possibly turn in used ones, still waiting to hear back from them about that.) This project is perfect for those who aren’t totally crafty but just have a heart for doing something.

Calling all family and friends and people who live in the Nashville area, I need your help! I’m going to be teaming up with Our Little Nest and A Fish Out of Water in collecting towels and dish soap. We have set a goal of 100 towels and 10 bottles of Dawn, totally reasonable! All you need to do is get them to me by June 26 (or sometime close to then) and I’ll take care of the packing and mailing.

If you need more information or need some ideas of what to send in, let us know!

Please leave a comment on this post if you would like to participate. We will be sure to keep everyone updated over the coming weeks.

A huge thank you to Kimberly, for organizing the whole project. All the towels will be mailed to her and she will be hand delivering them! And also Craft Hope for bringing us all together!
