Capes for Kids

**Updated July 2014 - This is an ongoing project for me, so although this original post is old, I am still accepting capes all the time.**



I love to see people helping children in 3rd world countries.  I know this brings sunshine to many, many people.  I am getting involved in the Days for Girls organization that helps young women with their menstrual cycles in these 3rd world countries (I will post more about this project a little later when I get everything figured out).
I get a little sad, however, thinking about all the children here in America who could use those services.  I have found one that I think will be a very good fit for me.  The project of capes does not require any sewing (the pattern they have in Family Fun Magazine - CLICK HERE FOR PATTERN) - I don't sew, so this is a GREAT one for me!!

It is from an organization called Enchanted Makeovers.  The project is called Capes for Kids.

I would like to ask my readers to help me make this happen!  I have set a starting goal of 100 capes to send to this organization to distribute.  Will you help me?

How to help:
1.  Go to the link to make a cape (the Family Fun pattern)
2.  Email me when the cape(s) are complete.  ywbooks@yahoo.com   I will email back to you my address to ship them to (postage paid by you).
3.  You can enclose any kind of cash donation with your capes.  100% of this donation will be used for this Capes for Kids project - 100%!!
4.  When I receive the goal of 100 capes - I will ship them to Enchanted Makeovers.
5.  They will distribute them where they are needed most.

If you have any questions, please post a comment on the post and I will reply to it.  This way, if others have the same questions as you - they won't need to ask again.

Let's work together to bring SUNSHINE to the lives of these kids in shelters.

Thank you so much for your service and donations!!
