Some Sunshine Doo-Dads

Our good friend, Robin from Sunshine Doo-Dads in Phoenix, Arizona sent us these cheery hats of all sizes.

Chemo Caps

Robin’s note reads:

I am happy to be shipping off this over stuffed box to your wonderful cause!  I already had all but 1 of these hats completed when you issued your request for blankets.  Although I am not currently a blanket maker, I am going to learn so that I can contribute! Thank you for your efforts and providing so much with my donation

We love how Robin’s hope and cheery spirit is so contagious from her “Sunshine Doo-Dads” to her willingness to try to learn how to make blankets.  We are so grateful for Robin as a great supporter/friend and an active and consistent member of our community!

Have a great day!

Her note reads:

Greetings!  My name is Waleska, founder of MIsion en Movimienta, Making Lil’ Heads Warm- Fee Looking Chic.  I started this mission 5 years ago, sending St. Jude Children’s Hospital crochet beanies and slilppers.  Then helping other Missioners with different articles like flip-flops, school supplies and more, reaching countries like India, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

I am feeling very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of your mission/project.
I started crocheting years ago as a hobby, then learning it was a Call to Help others.

That’s how it turned into a Mission. ❤

I’ll love to keep having the opportunity to crochet for your mission.  Count on me if so!

You can look me up on Facebook and see what I do
