Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids BLOG HOP, November 10-12, 2012


"In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning."

As joyous as Christmas is for most families, for some, their holidays are filled with worry, medical treatments and tests, and pain -- for their child must be hospitalized or she or he needs long-term care rather than being home with their families. 

For these kids, Santa doesn't slip down a chimney but rather, often comes in the guise of community volunteers who help make the season bright.  

This is the second Christmas season that our own band of dedicated and loving paper crafters have come together to make Holiday banners for children who are too sick to be home for the holidays.  Welcome to the Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids blog hop!

I am especially pleased that this year, not only have our numbers of generous crafters swelled so our Hop is over three full days, but also, that we have partnered with another great cause and recipient of our banners!

By teaming up with Madison Womack's I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT, the banners our crafters have handmade will be going to the hospitalized children at Children's Hospital Central California

First, let me show you the banner I made for today's post. I'll be sending this to Madison and the children at CHCC who are benefiting from the I Feel the Love project in December:

Aren't this little elves adorable? The are a svg collection that I purchased from My Scrap Chick. I hope I have inspired you to make a banner. If you would like to send a banner, or be involved in the next Banner for Special Needs Kids, contact Ellen. You can find here blog HERE.

We certainly have to work hard to make this a special occasion for these young ones. What we have is an opportunity to make a difference, it's not much but it will surely go a long way with them. A simple banner that celebrates their special day is more than enough.
