An act of Kindness

Sewing Project to help Foster Kids, is Adriane Grimaldi's endeavour to help foster children. She and her husband who are Scottsdale , AZ residents, have had two foster children arrive at their home with their personal belongings in trash bags. She says “I thought how traumatic is it that they are already being taken out of the home for whatever reason but to have personal things they treasure put in trash bags is also pretty bad.” She wondered why kid-friendly king-sized pillowcases with a simple drawstring closure or dufflebags couldn't be used instead?

She advertised in the Tribune recently and I jumped on board and will make 6 bags to start. The material was purchased at IKEA.

My 6 bags, almost finished. I now have to purchase string for the top.

If you would like to participate, contact her at or (480) 423-3590.
