Project Warm Hands



My fellow blogger and Isla resident, Islagringo, has started a charity to help the kids around Mexico stay warm....and happy. His one-man charity's goal is to provide homemade hats, mittens and scarves to children of impoverished communities around Mexico where cold temperatures are a serious problem. He also encourages people to send gently used clothing of any kind to these communties also. Of course, cash donations are also accepted and used to provide gifts to children over the Holidays. Children who otherwise probably would not receive a thing.
Why not click on this link and go read about it yourself. And maybe take the time to help out in the form of a donation or sending a box of clothing

To send a package:
Project Warm Hands
Vicente Camacho Garcia
Calle: Benito Juarez s/n
Ursulo Galvan
Xico, Veracruz 91240

To donate
www.vivaveracruz.com

I hope and think there are warm hearts and wallets out there that can help the people of Mexico!

Nope, unfortunately my knitting skills are non existant, i stole the photo from www.vivaveracruz.com and his post about helping the children.
I commented on his blog about it, there was no contact email on the site for me to ask permission.. Better to ask for forgiveness later than permission now :) It`s for a good cause! :D
