Handwork that Helps is a place to let people know about opportunities to donate handmade products to organizations that provide their clients with necessary items.
** Baby blankets for your local pregnancy center
** Lap blankets for those in assisted living care centers
** Helmet liners for soldiers
** Cute stuffed animals for kids in the hospital
** Socks for people who are displaced from their homes
The answer is easy – when you make something with your own hands, then you have done some “handwork” and that’s all there is to it.
There are many ways to contribute, such as woodworking, tatting, jewelry, mechanical items, knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting and so many more.
Working with your hands is kind of interesting, actually, in that what one person finds easy & fun might not work out so well for someone else…even though the skills are the same, different people are better suited for different types of handwork.
Explore a bit and find your own niche. You’ll probably meet some new friends along the way, too.
Anyone can make time in their lives to use skills they already have (or learn some new ones) in order to help someone else. Young or old, male or female, it doesn’t matter.
Yes, you do.
We all have the same amount of time in our day. It just depends on how you decide to use your time. Just as your financial spending habits reflect what is important to you, so too do your time-spending habits.
I will grant you, though, “easier said than done” as they say!
If you want to have time in your life to create a unique item by hand, and then give it to a special person who you don’t even know, it will probably require some adjustments or changes on your part.
Dare I say it . . . . put down the cell phone & pick up the knitting needles!
(Probably ultimately from St. Jerome, “fac et aliquid operis, ut semper te diabolus inveniat occupatum“.) (from Wiktionary.org)
