This weekend, I will have a new volunteer working with me - my 14 year old Son! Is he excited - no, is he willing - pretty much. He has to perform two hours of community service for his 9th grade Leadership Class and when I told him this was the perfect match he was none too sure - he did give in though. We have a couple of blankets to cut, tons of yards to sort, and patterns, oh my do we have patterns to sort and label. That way when a volunteer would like a particular type of pattern, we can accommodate! It is a fun exciting project for me - it will grow on him. Really....I will keep you posted.

God's Tiny Angels - one preemie Red while and blue baby blanket, hat and bootie set, fall bootie set, two pairs of baby socks and one fleece blanket with flower applique. We also made another small shipping donation. This is so exciting to be a part of all of this through our Binky Patrol SC Chapter. Join us if you can - you don't have to have any special talents - just a desire to help children in need and sometimes we even send items to adults in need. Let us know if you know of a situation of need in SC - we are here to help. Email us at email@example.com!
One of our first donations was made to God's Tiny Angels - a wonderful group that is run by Danette Lemaster and they send items to NICU's, WIC, etc all over the place and one of their destinations is a Hospital right here in Charleston, SC. Our first box was just four hats and two sets of booties but we were just so excited to take part it in anyway. We try to send a small shipping donation each time also, because they ship their items all over the place and shipping has become very costly. Danette posts pictures of each and every donation and ours is there for April. Our second box just went off this week and more information to come on that one. Just another way to help babies and children in need.

Vicki Riley with DinkyBaby.com has created a pattern that is so perfect for our binkies! This little sweet pattern is so perfect for babies and small children and gives them a little friend to love as well as a soft cuddly blanket
to snuggle with. If you decide to become a volunteer for the Binky Patrol in SC, we will provide you with this sweet little pattern if you agree to make a DinkyBaby Binky for us! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://www.binkypatrol.org and click on the SC Chapter - we are in West Columbia. We provide comforting covers for children in need. Sometimes we even provide for adults as well - depending on the situation. Let us know if you know of someone in need!
