Oh my goodness, let me start off by saying this is a HUGE weight off my shoulders getting these done! Deep breath out....
I've had four of the night night packages done for a while now and it seemed to be one of those thing that I just never thought of until the middle of the night.. I had to get them done!! I put it on my blog!! What if someone asks about it or thinks that I'm not going to finish it?!?! Yup feel sorry for me because those are the kind of ridiculous thoughts that plague me at night...
My problem was that I was trying to get too many. I ended up calling the shelter and they told me there were nine kids living there currently! Nine kids!
So I marched right out to the store, baby in tow and I got the rest of the stuff for 5 more night night care packages. At least the children living there now will have a little something to make their lives easier!
My Grandmother and I are going to drop them off tomorrow morning. I will absolutely so these again.. however I will network it better. I'll make signs and pesters my friends a little more... ;)
Each bag has a stuffed animal, a blanket, a book, and a toothbrush. I made the last five bigger bags for bigger kids so there was age variation.
I'm so excited to give these to the shelter! Thank you so much to the beautiful people who helped me with this!
