First of all, thank you to every single person who has contributed already to the Mandalas for Marinke collaborative crochet art project, designed to raise awareness about depression and mental health issues while celebrating the creative work of Wink who succumbed to suicide earlier this summer.
Several of you offered generous donations of yarn to the veteran Joe that I wrote about on my blog a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to share an update from him …

I wanted to share this update here as a reminder that the little personal things we do with our craft really make a difference in the lives of others!
Crocheting for a good cause allows you to heal yourself while helping others heal. Purple Stitch Projects accepts donations of crochet for kids with epilepsy.
