FIRST-TIME DONATION of beautiful knit caps from Kira. She is a busy young mom and worked these caps into her “free” time. In less than a few days, 8 of her 10 caps have gone into Sparkle Caps gift bags. Five of those are in the mail to women going through cancer treatment in West Virginia, where those bare heads will be beautiful and warm this fall and winter. THANK YOU, Kira!

Marlyn Roan at Love Caps for Cancer crocheted another gorgeous dozen caps for our gift bags--12 more women dealing with bald heads because of chemo will have head toppers of warmth and beauty. Thank you, Maryln, who does these out of love with no monetary gain, but I do know she is truly blessed. Although she would probably not want the attention called to herself, I like to thank those who help keep our Sparkle Caps gift bags wonderful and full of blessings.

DONATIONS RECEIVED: Renee Cookson Nicholson contacted Sparkle Caps on March 24th, stating “. . .I would like to get some items gathered from friends and my ladies to help your project.” She learned about Sparkle Caps through two of her friends, who had received Sparkle Caps gift bags in May and July 2014. In early May, I picked up a big box of goodies from our mutual friend. I have no words to describe the personal items in the box. As the saying goes, pictures are worth a 1,000 words, so I am attaching an album. Please take a minute to check them out.

1) Courtney Dean’s Artwork; 2) Wow! The table is filled up with all kinds of goodies for the Sparkle Caps gift bags; 3) Samples of some of the artwork provided to Sparkle Caps by Courtney Dean Art, one of which goes into each gift bag; 4) Bookmarks and note cards; 5) Cards by Renee; 6) Gift bags decorated by some of the church's children; 7) Isn't this beautiful! From the ladies of Mon-Aetna Baptist Church "Bloomers" group; 8) Even Sparkle notebooks.

Teresa Crawford and Jasmine Frazier made these six gift bags for Sparkle Caps recipients and added the adorable gift bag embellishments. They went shopping with our “Additional Needs” list and put the following items in each gift bag. I got a kick out of the Teddy Bear Cookies Galletas they added. I will add some of our other items to each gift bag, and these will be the next six bags that go out.

We so appreciate the efforts of others to help Sparkle Caps and the women we uplift and empower through our gift bags. THANK YOU Teresa and Jasmine.

I was one of two guest speakers at The Ladies Praise Conference at Lakewood Baptist Church, Sumter, SC.  In addition to financial donations, we were presented with several bags of supplies.  I was blown away with the generosity of this congregation.
