We’re in the last days for our drive to collect handmade capes as part of our collaboration with Capes 4 Kids.
Each year Capes 4 Kids collect and distribute capes to help children feel as safe, secure and brave as possible while undergoing challenging, often “scary” situations and treatments. These little crusaders face hospitalization, medical procedures and treatments and need all the help that they can get to be brave, manage their fears, listen carefully and cooperate with instructions to “get through” whatever must be endured.
We challenge you to make at least one cape as part of our drive.
Capes are to be completed and sent to Handmade Cooperative HQ by the 23rd of June 2017, so you have just over a week to get sewing and post off your cape. Find out all the details on how to participate right here.
