The Creative Comfort Collective is a privately funded initiative birthed through my creative gifts ministry, Sowing His Gifts. Through this collective, I put together what I call comfort kits consisting of 3-4 handmade items which include 1 hat, 1 cowl or scarf, 1 hand/arm warmer or 1 pair of gloves, and a blanket when available. Each item is made by me, by hand with the finest quality yarn available. Yarn and other handmade items are also donated by other makers wanting to contribute to the comfort kits. The objective is to bring small gifts of comfort and warmth to adults and children who are in need of it. These comfort kits not only serve the homeless community but also those who can’t purchase a simple hat to protect and cover their child’s head from the cold. For the runaway teen who is now living on the street to escape an abusive home. For the mother and her children forced to live in a shelter because her husband left them and now they have nothing. For the man battling a debilitating illness who is in pain and not only needs comfort but also a respite from the cold. These are just some of the personal stories shared with me from people I have met over the years that have deeply touched me. I truly care for all people and have always had a special place in my heart for the less fortunate, the voiceless, rejected, abandoned and forgotten. It is out of this place that the comfort kits were born.
It is my prayer that these handmade items will not only bring comfort to the body but also to the heart. People in situations like these and countless others need a win in life and to receive a quality item handmade with them in mind may not be the solution to their problems but may at the very least keep them warm along the way.
