"In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning."
If you came from Ellen's Blog, then you are in the right spot. if you just happened by, make site to start at Ellen's Blog so you don't miss any of the fun or rules for prizes.
As joyous as Christmas is for most families, for some, their holidays are filled with worry, medical treatments and tests, and pain -- for their child must be hospitalized or she or he needs long-term care rather than being home with their families.
For these kids, Santa doesn't slip down a chimney but rather, often comes in the guise of community volunteers who help make the season bright.
This is the second Christmas season that our own band of dedicated and loving paper crafters have come together to make Holiday banners for children who are too sick to be home for the holidays. Welcome to the Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids blog hop!
We are especially pleased that this year, not only have the number of generous crafters swelled so our Hop is over three full days, but also, that we have partnered with another great cause and recipient of our banners!
By teaming up with Madison Womack's I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT, the banners our crafters have handmade will be going to the hospitalized children at Children's Hospital Central California!
First, let me show you the banner I made for today's post. I'll be sending this to Madison and the children at CHCC who are benefiting from the I Feel the Love project in December:
I used Christmas tree shaped chipboard, then I covered each with paper and added decorations.
Your next stop is Heather D.
Thank you again for visiting us here for a beautiful and worthwhile endeavor. God bless all the little children wherever they spend their holidays!!
