|Hazel Pearson (left) and Aleene Jackson (right), December 2010.|
Back in the 1940s, both of these women were enterprising craftypreneurs. Cathy of California even blogged about Hazel. You can read about Aleene's history here.
Sixty-some years later, their friendship still stands strong! In Heidi's blog post, she wrote about how Hazel, 96, organizes a care package program with her church. For the past 11 years, Hazel has helped gather thousands of shoeboxes for children in the Philippines. But not to decorate, or at least not in the way you'd think. Her "embellishment" goes inside each package and consists of toys, school supplies, socks, and most important - craft supplies, plus all sorts of other items that any child would love and need.
|John Howard works to fill the boxes with goodies for the kiddos! The letter is from Hazel!|
If you would like to donate items for Hazel's shoeboxes contact Heidi or Tiffany, they will connect you!
