Perhaps 20 minutes isn’t too long in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps there isn’t much to be achieved in 20 minutes? Well let me tell you there is a hell of a lot which can be achieved in those precious 20 minutes. A while ago I took part in a survey asking about using 20 minutes to volunteer. It got me thinking.
What could be made in 20 minutes? What could it be used for? Could it really be termed volunteering? Twenty minutes with my slow crochet work will make a tiny premature baby hat. Now there are others who crochet and who would make a premature baby jacket in 20 minutes. ( I am slow)
Now before you switch off from this post just because you may not be a crafter can I make a suggestion here of how you might be able to volunteer 20 minutes. Would you have 20 minutes to purchase yarn, fabric and donate it? If you don’t know anyone directly who knits just contact your local ICA or similar group they will definitely know.
Crafting is expensive so two fat quarters of fabric would make a premmie blanket. 2 yards of fabric can be used to make a fidget quilt for a person with dementia. Then there are the bravery blankies for children and teenagers in hospital with cancer. 2 balls of yarn would go along way to making so many things.
Please don’t think about it just head off and purchase that ball of yarn, or that piece of fabric and pass it on and put a smile on someone’s face.
