This isn’t about crochet solely, so feel free to insert whatever your hobby is into this message.
I was at my cancer center for my 3 year checkup, all clear for another year!
I just love dealing with the people who work here. They are genuinely nice, helpful and down right courteous.
For the last couple years, I’ve made a point of stopping at the volunteer desk. I crochet and like making hats, so I inquired to see if they needed any. Up until today, they’ve always told me they had a surplus. They had maybe a dozen hats and that was it.
So I sounded the bell of need to my crochet friends. Everyone that can has stopped what they were working on to crank a couple hats out. I even joined a couple new Facebook groups just so I could pass the word; they’ve all had a few people agree to help.
I hate the thought of someone going without a hat if they need it. I can’t stop thinking about “what if I didn’t stop to ask?” even though, each year I was told they had all they needed.
My point is, it never hurts to ask. So if you have a hobby and if you’d like to share it, ask a local charity if you can help.
If we all gave a couple hats, no one would have to go without.
pass it on…
