|Bev's 2005 Charity Crafting Challenge
Smith on the anniversary of his 200th
Smith Born 23 December 1805 - click for more information
I can offer the world is a good heart and a good hand. -- Joseph Smith
(History of the Church, 5:498)"
the bicentenial of the
Smith's birth, and to honor him
on his 200th birthday. I am committing
to making 200 items for babies and children. It was well known
Smith absolutely LOVED little children and he would stop what he was
time to talk to
them and to join in their games. He would often greet them
acknowledging the adults at meetings or
out in public. Children felt safe with him and loved by
Joseph would try to make
them comfortable and there are many journal
entries about how he had touched their young lives.
Here are some of
the items I am making:
- warm children's
hats with my knitting looms and hand knit ones.
and dolls to bring needy kids joy!
I hope many of you will join
me in making warm items for little ones in 2005. I will be donating
these items mainly to LDS Humanitarian, and to other
emergency projects as needs arise locally or otherwise.
