Back in October , Blogger Wayne in Isla Mujeres came up with the idea to help the kids in Ursula Galvan in Veracruz State. This is the community that Blogger John and his wife Anita live. The plan was to knit hats for the kids there, where it gets cold in the winter. I jumped on board, as I enjoy knitting and wanted to give something to these kids, too.
But my son and his wife are expecting a baby at the end of the year and I have been knitting my little fingers to the bone working on projects for their little one…and have not knitted one thing for the kids in Veracruz. I decided I needed a different approach, and I hope it will be ok. Wayne knitted a bunch of hats. Blogger Theresa sewed some wonderful caps out of polar fleece, and a friend of Wayne’s sent some adorable dolls. People donated money through the PayPal link on John’s blog.
One of my passions in life is reading, and I know how important it is to own your own books at an early age. So I went out to the children’s bookstore, Casa Caracol in Mazatlan, and bought a bunch of books for the kids. I’ll be mailing them off tomorrow. I think I got some really interesting books for a variety of ages.
