Wow - what a year its been!
First, thank you. We cant say that enough! When KNITCRATE announced that Butterfly Boxes would be their charity of the year back in January, we were thrilled. But we didnt really know what to expect. We thought we might see a few items trickle in here or there. We thought subscribers might send one item and call it good.
But you surprised us! Weve received dozens of items, and most packages have contained multiples. Packages have come from international subscribers. Theyve come with notes telling us that the subscriber was also an immigrant or refugee. Theyve come with items made by both the subscriber and her daughter. Theyve come with your very best work. We are grateful and so honored to be able to share your talents with those who have been arriving in the last few months.
