I don't intend to cross-post here every time I make a little update over at Mama to Mama, but there have been a few additions in the past week that I want to direct you to.
- The Caps are coming in! And they're wonderful! I added a Cap Counter in the sidebar of Mama to Mama to track and share the total with you as the project progresses. I had great hopes of sending notes of gratitude to all who submit, but I quickly realized that's going to be impossible. I hope this little counter - and a few other ways of updating that I have planned - will bring you some satisfaction in watching the craftiness-for-good grow!
- I had been receiving one (really good, I might add) question more than any other since the project started - given the climate in Haiti, are infant caps really necessary? - so I asked Konbit Sante for some help in answering. The short answer is 'yes!", but the long answer is highly informative and helpful and right over here on the Mama to Mama website.
- Lastly, I added one more crafty project that can be contributed to this phase of the project! So many of you have asked what else you can make, and lightweight receiving blankets would be so helpful for the healthcare workers to give out at birth. There are some basic instructions - and a description of the kind of blanket needed for the project - on the Mama to Mama site now. Should that be something you'd like to make instead of - or in addition to - the Caps, give it a peek.
If you want to stay current on all the updates as they happen on Mama to Mama, be sure to subscribe to the feed there, or visit www.mamatomama.org from time to time.
Thank you all so much for sharing your hearts and your hands with this project!
