May we someday hear the words "well done" because others have felt His touch and love through our hands and feet and know they are important and special to Him.

June 2012 Notes

What a week!  The kids at Lifesource are awesome!  So far they have cut out over 70 shirts and yesterday they completed 12 hats too!  Now we need hands for getting them all sewn together.  What a blessing to have this need.

If you have time or ability, let us know if you would like to take some of these shirts and get them sewn together.  Also, JoAnn's has some of their flannel half price this week so it is a great time to pick some up.  If you shop at Hobby Lobby, don't forget to use their weekly coupon.  Typically it is for 40% off and you can pull it up on your phone when checking out so you don't need the paper copy!  We want to make sure you are aware of little things like this so you get the most out of your blessings and efforts.

Thank you to some of you that found great deals and have picked us up fabric or have given us money to make these purchases.  We are blessed and you will also be blessed for the love you have shown for these little ones.  Thank you.

June 2012 Updates

This ministry continues to be blessed!  On Monday we got to work with the kids of LifeSource International!  They are an energetic group ready to make a difference for others.  During this summer they are joining with us to make shirts for the babies of ACH CVICU!  With their amazing efforts, we will be able to expand our ministry to the hospitals of Northwest Arkansas quickly!  How wonderful to know so many more babies and their families will be blessed because of their efforts.  It will be exciting to see what they accomplish over the short months of summer.  It will be just as exciting posting their updates here for everyone to see what they do.

Today a package for ACH was put in the mail and this week they will have new shirts, hats, and blankets for the babies!  And, later this month another package will be on the way to them!  Check out the new photos as well!  Families will be blessed by you!  Thank you!

June 2012 Work Session Totals

It continues to be amazing how much can be done in just a few hours!  Today's group was no exception.  What a blessing getting to bless the lives of others.  We completed things today that will allow us to get a wonderful package to ACH this week!  Thank you to everyone that helps us make this possible.  Some donate fabric, some money, some come and cut fabric, and some come and sew, and some work on things at home during the month.  Every little bit makes a difference that adds together for an amazing impact!  Today we completed the following:

21 receiving blankets
10 shirts sewn together
10 new shirts cut out
2  fleece blankets cut

This is a lot of work for just a few ladies to get done in 3 hours! Thank you!

If you would like to work on things during the month as you have a few moments, please let us know.  We will get the information/supplies to you right away!  Everyone can make a difference and every bit of impact adds up to AMAZING!  If you prefer to simply give, we will always use fabric donations.  Fleece and flannel are the most needed.  It takes 1 yard of flannel to make a receiving blanket that will fit the CVICU bed.  It takes 1 yard of 60" wide fleece to make 2 blankets.  We make them a little smaller so they are easier to work with in the little beds.  We can cut out about 8 shirts from a yard of cotton and about 8 hats from soft stretchy knits.  And, we even save the scraps!  They are donated to a group that uses them to make beds for an animal shelter!  Nothing you give will be wasted!
