Delma, the charity's founder and I started a tradition two years ago of providing quilts to each one of those children in each of the camps. As the charity grows, so do the camps and so we need more and more quilts each year. And so I am reaching out to you once again. Can you make a quilt? Spare a quilt? Join together with some friends and make a quilt or two? To find out more, head on over to this post that kicked it all off two years ago. Somewhere around 70-80 quilts were donated last year and the year before. Delma took them to the summer camps. As the week went on, the care workers looked at the quilts and made decisions as to which quilt suited which kid or kids. The quilts were given out at the end of the camps and - this is the bit that broke my heart - it took a lot of persuading to persuade those kids that the quilts were theirs to keep.

And so we're starting again. A whole new pile of quilts. A whole new batch of kids. Summer camps are in July so you have a few months to get something together. Would you join me? Would you get involved? I have created a Flickr group where we can see what we can come up with. Please leave comments on this post letting me know if you would like to get involved in any way at all and hop on over to the Flickr group, join up and see what we can do.
