I am part of a wonderful international women’s philanthropy organization: P.E.O. International. We help women of all ages fund their education through grants and low-cost loans. Women all across the U.S. and Canada contribute to these educational funds through local fundraisers. Our fundraiser is called “Education Is Our Bag”. We collect gently used handbags and resell them at local fairs. 100% of all the money we raise is used to fund women’s education. All you have to do is go through your closet and pull out those unused handbags. Text or email me (708-334-0277 or email@example.com), and I will pick them up. To learn more about this organization, visit the website: www.peointernational.org.

VITAS Healthcare is currently looking for knitters, crocheters and sewers for their comfort care hospice program. Volunteers would create blankets, robes, draw string bags, prayer shawls and other needed items for hospice patients. Your volunteer time would suit your schedule and your location. Also donations of yarn, fleece and material are also needed and welcomed.
