My first big project for 2013 is to prepare a couple of donations for charitable use. This year we are taking the youth group on a pilgrimage to Rome, Assisi and Lourdes. In our never-ending effort to raise money we will be having gift baskets available to win at the fish frys at church this Lent. I decided this would be a good opportunity to donate and to promote the business. I came up with the idea of hats for every season. To that end, I have included a pumpkin, a Santa hat, a baseball hat (for spring) and a cute patriotic sun hat for summer. I think it would make a great shower gift or special purchase for that new baby!
I had been working on the hats when I saw a post from Connecting for Kids looking for raffle prizes. Connecting for Kids is an awesome organization started by a friend of mine to help families who may be facing the challenging task of diagnosing developmental delays in their children. They are doing great things here on the west side and I wanted to help her out so I am doubling the charity order!
I will post pics of the baskets soon. I am lucky enough to have a photographer as a friend and she will be taking some pictures of my hats in the near future. Thanks in advance to MultipleXposure Photography for what I am sure will be awesome pics! I know they will be better than what I can take on my cell phone!
