Make an Apron for a Haitian Woman!

 This really is an awesome opportunity! So go dig through your stash and see what you can make to send a lovely lady in Haiti! Send me a picture too!

It is unlikely that the average Haitian woman will ever receive anything that is special and pretty, something just for herself. Daily life for the Haitian woman is grueling and backbreaking. Most have to carry 5-gallon buckets of water on their heads from miles away. Cooking is done in a pit in the ground from handmade charcoal. The few pieces of clothing they have are washed in the river and hung to dry.

To receive something as precious as an apron made with love from pretty new fabrics would go a long way in making a Haitian women feel special. We would love for you to join us as we sew and collect aprons for the women of Haiti!

Guidelines for Project Apron:
--Pretty-but-practical full or half aprons (nothing too frilly, ruffly or lacey)
--Washable fabrics only please
--Pockets are a plus
--You may include a handwritten note with your apron if you like. Someone will be available to translate when we deliver the aprons

--Please send all aprons to:
3333 Benton Road
Cedar Hill TN 3703

Again, the deadline for this project is May 31, 2012, so you can still have plenty of time.
