How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways….re-purposing items for other needs.By
This entry in our Relief Share blog is bringing attention to the needs of those who are dealing with lack. When we think that an item will be used for a specific purpose, those who have not may use it for our intended purposes, but also have the creativity and inventiveness to re-purpose it for other needs.
We were charmed to see what our Relief Share knitted hat wound up being used for by a sweet little girl who innocently showed us that there are different ways to look at and use the same things. Thinking outside the box allowed her to spend happy hours caring for her baby doll in a soft cuddly bunting pod, and when it gets cold, she can immediately pop the baby dolls ‘bed’ on her head for a cute warm hat to protect her head from the chilly weather. I guess you could look at it this way – warm weather, it’s a dolly bed – cold weather, it’s a hat.
If you would like to donate knitted or crocheted hats to help the sick and needy, feel free to use your own patterns or email us at info@ReliefShare.org for our pattern shown above.
Hugs to you – may your heart always be warm, your tummy full and you be willing to help others when the spirit of God touches you to do so.
