Update on the Hottie Project

July 15, 2013

Every few days, my heart swells.
Every few days I am amazed and humbled by the generosity of people.
Every few days I receive a parcel of hottie covers for The Hottie Project.

The other week we sent off 146 hotties to children in Christchurch.

146!  With more arriving every few days...  So exciting!

Opening the parcels and discovering such wonderful creativity is incredible.  I am astounded by the effort which has gone into them, and such lovely ideas.  Not to mention the gorgeous hand written cards accompanying many too.  So heartwarming.

Mothers and daughters, craft groups, church groups, school children, retired people and everyone in between, creating beautifully warm and cosy covers.  Each and every hottie cover made by hand, with love and with intention.

I hope the children love their new hotties and they bring not only warmth but comfort too.

The last care parcel is due to be sent at the end of July.  If you would like to take part there is still time!  Please visit The Hottie Project page here for details.

I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to this project, from New Zealand and around the world.  

You are so appreciated.  

PS:  If you don't see your cover pictured, it may be because it was sent to an address which is not in my city. Sorry!
