Crochet for Cancer

I was recently in a Hospice shop (in New Zealand Hospice helps those that are suffering from terminal cancer and their families). With my dad passing away 3 months ago and having numerous people in my life over recent years that have passed away from cancer or at present suffering with it, I have taken an interest in how I can support Hospice (this is not a funded place here in New Zealand)

I follow Crochet for Cancer on Facebook. Last week I asked if I could join the Hospice Craft Group so I could use my talent to make and donate goods to raise money for Hospice.  I start attending next week.  I am looking forward to making and creating for a very good cause.

I came across this site today with free Chemo Cap patterns I thought I would share.

I wondered if some of you would consider making a chemo cap to donate to Hospice for a child or an adult. 

Here is the link to donate in the USA  Click HERE

If you are in New Zealand can you email me on lydiastreasures@gmail.com and I can organise you to post it to me so I can pass donations on.

Click HERE to read more about Hospice New Zealand... it cost $99 million last year to fund Hospice, which is a free service and it is NOT funded by our government.

If you would rather make something else that is fine too... just a little something to help goes along way.

Blessings to you

There are so many great charities worthwhile of our support out there and I truly believe hospice is one of them.
