I am so excited to see the Poncho Project grow beyond anything I imagined and to know that there will be so many kids that will benefit from the efforts of everyone involved. So far I have sent out several poncho kits across the country to people who wanted to start up a poncho project to benefit their own local children's hospital. Some have been touched by a child with special needs, some are parents or grandparents, some are just kind souls who just want to give something back and put a smile on child's face.
One of these poncho kits landed in the hands of my friend Sandy C. She and some students from the Association of Clinical Lab Sciences at Ferris State University have been busy bees over the past several months working to raise funds and collect donations to make their poncho project a reality.
I am so excited to report that they have made over 40 ponchos and pillowcases/purses that they will be delivering to the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids this week!!! I applaud their efforts to bring a bit of joy to others. Thank you all so much. It sure looks like they had a lot of fun but they will have even more fun when they see the looks on the kids faces!
OMG... YOU GUYS ROCK!!! Keep up the good work :)
