I create soft, snuggly pillowcases for children in shelters whose families are seeking asylum. Each pillowcase has a tag that says "you are loved." One friend referred to the pillowcases as "little life rafts" that the child can take with them on their journey, and I think that is an appropriate description.
your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals. Each pillowcase costs about $8 in materials. All labor is volunteer! We have made hundreds thus far. The donate button will take you to our contact page. Let us know your interest and we can provide instructions on receiving your donation. Thanks!!
Hello Friends! I'm delighted to share with you that we are sending 90 pillowcases to the shelters at the border to be shared with the children passing through. That is 90 more smiles, warm welcomes, and reminders to each child that he/she is loved.
And...we purchased enough fabric this past week to make the next 200! We are busy beginning the next batch, with our own smiles and warm wishes poured into each pillowcase. A heartfelt thanks from us, Julie and Matt, for your generosity in supporting this project. "You are loved!"
One of our generous donors wrote, "Every child no matter what the circumstances deserves a safe place to sleep and to feel loved. I am thrilled to be able to donate to this Pillowcase Project." We are so grateful to all of you for understanding the why's behind this project and for your generosity!
Thanks to your generous donations, we have purchased enough fabric for the next 100 pillowcases! We will get busy making them and send what we can in August's delivery south. Just imagine the smiles and heartfelt yumminess passed on to these little ones - singing daisies, friendly dinos, giddy monsters, and more!!
During their three-day stay at the shelter, each child and mother with a newborn receives a pillowcase to use and then take with them on their journey. It is a small but powerful reminder that they are loved and not alone. We are all interconnected in our shared humanity.
One of our generous donors suggested we share with you a photo of us, Julie and Mathew, the pillowcase makers. We are very happy to do this and hope that our joy in doing this work shines through.
We are 2/3rds of the way to our funding goal! Thanks to all of you for your support and for helping to spread the joy to the children. You are loved!!
