Event: Craft Hope Oil Spill Relief Project

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

Here is another event on the blog-o-sphere related to oil spill clean up. The fantastic folks at Craft Hope have partnered with The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, the Audubon Nature Institute, and the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge to assist them in their efforts in caring for and cleaning oiled marine mammals, mostly dolphins, other marine mammals, birds, and sea turtles.

Since these creatures are naturally curious and head straight towards all the oil slick activity, they’re asking all crafters who can sew, knit or crochet to send in sets of 10 – 20 hand-crafted wash towels and/or hand rags. They are, after all, called “Craft Hope”.┬áThese towels and rags will then be used to help clean up the mammals, birds and sea turtles. No worries on sending anything fancy.

Visit their website to get all the information on how to participate in their project, but don’t tarry…the project deadline is the end of August! All of your donations can be of great help!

    I wonder when they will come to their senses and discontinue with the oil. Alternate technology has already been there to replace it all!

    What do you think the tropical storm will do to the oil spill?
