Comforting people in need, one blanket at a time

Published in

A dozen children and women at Winnipeg's Home Street Mennonite Church spent an afternoon tieing blankets for Mennonite Central Committee to aid MCC in their relief efforts in Haiti. MCC Manitoba is asking for 10,000 blankets by the end of the month, and today they have four more. A small, humble act, perhaps, which involves sewing seams to make a blanket top, and knotting the layers together with a simple square knot in cotton yarn. But we know that these blankets will give at least four adults and possibly four children, comfort and warmth, and perhaps a little hope that life will get better. We hope we've created just a little peace in their lives, using the simple materials of fabric, yarn, and a few hours of our time.

Small and humble acts are worthy too! Thanks for sharing this small and humble act on this site, Brenda.
