On November 11, 2011, Holly with Royal Metals on Artfire mentioned in an Art Fire forum that she had been thinking about doing something for the poor little children that are in her local hospital. Her heart was yearning to be able to help these children make a jewelry piece for their moms for Christmas., so she made the call.
A week later, the hospital contacted her, and agreed to let her come and help the children. The excitement for her thoughtful jesture spread throughout the forum, and other jewelry designers jumped in and began sending her beads, wire, and all kinds of supplies she would need to make sure that each child that was able to leave their rooms would be able to learn how and make their mom a gift. This is being done at her own cost of supplies. She never asked for help, it was offered in abundance.
So, with a new joy in my heart, I want to say how very proud I am of her, and all the wonderful people that joined in on Holly’s goodwill gesture. This truly was a true Christmas blessing for children and their parents. I can picture in my mind how excited they were to be able to actually make their mom’s a present that they can cherish for the rest of their lives.
Holly plans to return to the hospital several more times before the Holiday, and continue her volunteering into 2012.
So, is anyone doing a special Christmas Blessing this year?
