Thank you, Judy!

Judy from Pennsylvania was one of our very first donors to Marine Corps Kids.  Over the years she has sent in countless gifts including some of the cutest little stuffed toys, hats, sweaters, dresses, washcloths and bibs. 

Lately she has been having problems with her hands, and no longer able to crochet.  She wrote:

..It has taken me a few months to finally accept this fact and do now want to let the yarn I have go to waste.  It was all given to me and I am now paying it forward.  This is not all of it - I have more to sort thr but wanted to send some now.  I am not sure if it can all be used for baby stuff, but it can be used for siblings and moms.   I truly regret that I can no longer create for Marine  Corps Kids - I so loved all the years I have been donating.  MCK was and will always be near and dear to my heart.  I continue to check the blogspot and enjoy seeing all the beautiful things you are getting."

Thank you so very much, Judy for all you have contributed.  There are literally hundreds of babies out there who have received your gifts and who are still playing with the darling toys you have sent! 

It is very kind of you to send the yarn to us.  There are several groups including a few Senior Centers, a Girl Scout Troop, and the Hooks and Bars group who I'm sure would be delighted to use this yarn to create more wonderful things for MCK.  Your generosity is helping to create more gifts for the kids!!!

You will always be a member of the MCK Family of crafters, and we will always be a appreciative of all the gifts that you have created!

If there are any individuals or groups out there who would like to receive some of this donated yarn to create gifts for Marine Corps Kids, please let me know.

I would love to have some of the yarn. I've been out of work for over 2 years and struggle with finding funds for the sweaters and blankets. I have a new batch of blankets that is almost ready to ship but after that I am nearly out of supplies. I do have plenty of time to knit though.

Delia, I recieved the box of yarn today. Thank you so much. It is full of wondrous possibilities and I've already got "ideas" for projects for the kids.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
