Recently, I taught a group of Young Women (ages 12 to 18) in our church to make earrings.
Now, they didn't make these earrings for themselves, but for our local cancer center.
I mentioned in a blog not too long ago about a lady who does this; she donates earrings to patience undergoing chemo and radiation treatment. Her organization is called, EARS TO YOU. It's a great thing she does, you should check it out.
Anyway, our girls made 21 pair of beautiful earrings, and cards to put the earrings onto.
They are going to make a sticker to put on the bottom of the cards that have the Young Women's organization name on it. They are still contemplating as to what it will look like.
In a few weeks, they will deliver these earrings. They had a fun time making these. Not only did they learn a skill, but they have also done some fun service for someone.
I even heard a few of the girls mention they would like to make some earring for their mothers.
