It has been exactly a year since we wrapped up the big “Tatted Totes for Tatted Tits” project. In the end the final number of donated handmade totes was 720. Amazing!
With permission I share the following e-mail I received recently from a recipient of one of our tote bags. I hope it gives you the satisfaction, as it did for me, that the project worked!:
I am finally able to send this email. I’m so excited to say I am done with my Chemotherapy Treatment. Going back to normal now. I have a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old girl so I Definately have lots of catching up to do, but before I moved on I wanted to say how grateful I was for this gift I received when I was diagnosed. It was very comforting knowing that someone cared what was happening to me. I had a big support group and was so important, but when something like this comes from a complete stranger you truly feel such love. It’s hard to explain but I know you definately understand.
My Tote held safely everything I needed to keep myself organized while I was going from doctor to doctor and hospitals.
THANK YOU FROM THE DEEPEST PART OF MY HEART.
