. . . and a chance to help a child in Haiti. Wait, now that I have you hooked with the lure of a free pattern, keep reading. You might be inspired to make a difference in the life of a child. (I'm so inspired that I'm using my lunch time to type this post, and I really cherish my lunch time!)
If you've been reading along on my little blog, you may remember a post I wrote following the earthquake in Haiti. (Click here for a refresher.) The problems in Haiti are still beyond our comprehension, but I've heard amazing stories about how people like you and me are finding ways to help - even from afar. An average-sized church in our area collected upwards of $30,000 for Haiti relief. An elementary school put together 60 hygiene kits for people who need basic supplies like toothbrushes and soap. Families from our community donated supplies for babies - blankets, cloth diapers, sleepers, etc.
