Crafting for Charity

Why not use your creativity to make someone's life a little better. Most of these organizations accept completed projects and/or craft supplies. Some of these charities serve mainly their local areas, but you may be able to find or start something similar in your area; also remember to check your local hospitals, shelters, ect to see what they need. A great lesson to teach kids!
