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.
You may also consider adding your washcloths to a hygiene kit or Christmas bag for Haiti's Children.
When finished and before mailing, please read the important instructions on
our shipping page.
If you SELL washcloths for Haiti's Children, please mail your check to our Pell Lake, Wisconsin address (below).
Thank you for using your time and talents to share God's love with the children in the remotest areas of Haiti!
