Mentoring the next generation.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Today is the day that I say thank you. Thank you for your support and trusting me to lead this crafty group. Thank you for giving not only to me, but also to the community.

I bet you’re wondering what I am talking about. This morning the Rubber Rummage Sale was wrapped up. I collected, sold, and now donated. Thank you to those that brought product to sell and eventually donate. This year’s recipient was the PLUS program at the school district.

The PLUS program helps those students that have learning disabilities and also those that have gone through something traumatic or life-altering. This program allows them to learn in a non-traditional manner. Instead of a classroom setting all day they alternate between classwork and visual therapies. One day they might teach how to paint or another might be sewing. So now they can papercraft as well.

Who knows who next year’s recipient may be. Please keep your ears and eyes open throughout the year. I will ask for suggestions when the 5th Annual Rubber Rummage Sale is announced in February 2020. It will be here before we know it. So, for now, go make an impact no matter how small or big!

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
