Wow - Summer is Here Already!!!

I just don't know where this year has gone.  It has wings and it's flying.  We are working hard right now to inventory all of our finished items so that we can get them matched up to recipients before the summer is over and to head off cooler weather.  We are so fortunate to have items to inventory and so thankful for all of the wonderful things we have received.  If you have been a part of that, please know that we greatly appreciate every single item that we receive!!  We try to get packages posted on Facebook within a day after they arrive but if we have missed something you have sent in, please do call our attention to it right away.  During our inventory process, we will work to get pictures up of everything we have on hand - even if it has been pictured before.  We love to show off the beautiful things we receive and we hope to inspire everyone at the same time.

Even though the weather is very warm outside right now, there are still many needs for shelters, NICU's, orphanages, etc.  The needs never stop and we are always so thankful to get anything you would like to send us. 

We are working on something new - The Pink Project - and we will be sending NICU Smocks for Preemies to local hospitals.  We have a very simple pattern provided to us by The Pink Project and we can send it to anyone who would like to be involved.  Their goal is to provide a new gown to every preemie who leaves the NICU as a gift.   Read more about this group here.  If you don't enjoy sewing, we can use all sorts of supplies to make these and they are listed on the link.  So excited to be a part of this project!!

We want to also congratulate Binky Patrol National on their 16th Anniversary!!  Congratulations Susan and we are so glad it all began 16 years ago!!  BPSC is now a big two years old and growing strong!!  Thank you all who have made it possible.  Keep a watch on our blog as we stay busy this summer!!
