Help empower our women and girls
All financial donations are used to fund our program in Kenya.
Another way to support us is to donate embroidery floss. While we buy all our fabric in Africa, good embroidery floss in a variety of colors is impossible to find.
We use DMC for our table mat sets – each set takes two skeins of a bright color. We also welcome smaller amounts of any brand of floss for our art quilts.
Our intrepid team of floss ladies returned this year to sort through approximately 50 pounds of floss that had been donated from all over the US. The largest donation came from Hawaii where supporter Stephanie Guieb collected floss from all over the islands. It was then put into bags by major color groups that presented a lot of challenges: is it pale green or aqua? Alas, the neat plastic bags of floss had to be repackaged in paper bags as Kenya has banned plastic bags. Fortunately, the mistake was realized the day before she departed.
Email us about donating or just send floss to our office at 31430 NE Canter Lane, Sherwood, OR 97140.
