Thank you, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth from Virginia sent in a box of beautiful donations! It included 3 soft and beautiful blankets, 3 precious stuffed toys, 2 sweaters, 2 diaper covers, 10 hats (including a cute bumble bee cap!), and 3 hat and bootie sets. The little set with the roses is especially adorable!!

Thank you so much, Elizabeth! Your work is beautiful, and the new moms will be thrilled with these gifts!

RIP Mary

These beautiful hats were made by Mary Sper, a regular donor to Marine Corps Kids.

I learned this week that Mary passed away last month at the age of 86. She died peacefully while sitting in her chair making hats for charity.

Mary loved to knit, and regularly donated hats to Marine Corps Kids and blankets to Project Linus. She will be missed by her family and friends and by all the people she touched through her crafting.
