Humanitarian Project

Tomorrow night for Home, Family, and Personal Enrichment meeting we are putting together baby kits for the Humanitarian Project. It is such a fun idea. I have knit two pairs of baby booties to donate, and I am going to sew two little layette gowns. We will be sewing recieving blankets that night, and we will also put together the packets. Each Newborn Kit includes

1 double receiving blanket (see receiving blanket guidelines)

4 cloth diapers (do not include disposable diapers)

4 diaper safety pins

1 pair booties or baby socks

2 regular-size bars of soap (Ivory or other non-allergenic brand)

1 newborn layette gown (please, no footed sleepers; see layette gown guidelines)

Doesn't that sound like fun?

Wendy, I'm proud of you knitting booties. I didn't know you could do that! I love the humanitarian projects. The kits are interesting aren't they - aimed for people overseas. Mom

What a great project! Our ward did hygiene (sp?) kits and fleece blankets. Although they were enjoyable, the baby kits sound so cute and fun to make!
