Volunteering: Three-Day Weekend

I’m looking forward to this weekend. Why? I’ll be sewing! It’s been several months since I’ve sewn anything. Now that I think about it, it might be over a year since I’ve used my sewing machines. Hmm… my, how the time has flown by. What will I be sewing? Binky’s! I’m making them for a beautiful organization called Binky Patrol.

From their website…

We are an all-volunteer, national, non-profit organization making and distributing homemade blankets to children born drug-addicted, infected with AIDS or who are battling other chronic & terminal illnesses, homeless, victims of violent crimes, those who are abused, in foster care, or experiencing trauma of any kind.

I learned about them through the company where I work. My company actively encourages employees to volunteer, even granting their employees one paid day (eight hours) yearly to volunteer. How awesome is that? I have plenty of fleece fabric available. However, I think I’ll purchase some more fabric this weekend, and I’m looking forward to spending several hours creating binkies for those in need.
