Washcloths for Haiti's Children

Washcloths are a luxury in Haiti. But you or your group can help by crocheting or knitting washcloths for Haiti's Children.  

Here's what the founder of the washcloth program said: 

Washcloths for Haiti began when one of my best friends moved to Haiti to be a full time
Missionary.  I wanted to help make a difference.  My friend asked about the washcloth
that was in my kitchen and said they used them to bathe the children in Haiti. Where
could she get some.  I started crocheting away, and sent washcloths as they were
completed.   Then I thought about how we use them too!  Why not sell some, and let
my friend use the fund in Haiti? So whether I send the washcloths themselves, or send
proceeds from the sale of washcloths, it makes a difference in the life of a child.
Please help make a difference.

              THANK YOU!

You may also consider adding your washcloths to a hygiene kit or Christmas bag for Haiti's Children.
