2015 what is HAIN up too

We haven't used our blog in forever!
Here is what we have been up to:
1.  We only use heavenlyangelsinneed.com and no longer use other web addresses, got way to confusing for all.
2. Due to our host no longer using domain emails HAIN decided to now use gmails. So our new email has been changed to hainfounder@gmail.com so update your address book's!!
3. We currently just use our forum board as our main website. We will be working to update this hopefully soon!
4. We are on facebook http://facebook.com/heavenlyangelsinneed check us out!
.we are also on ravelry look in the groups for heavenly angels in need...my user name is MaryMGlynn I have my free HAIN patterns listed there too!
. I have a pinterest board on my profile marymglynn. Plus a board I made for charity patterns!
. We are in twitter too! @Hainhq
5. We have challenges and exchanges all the time come join us!
6. We no longer are taking wedding gown donation's. The outpourings caused us to decide to no longer accept them. Good news is many other charities are following suit on turning wedding gowns to burial garments for babies. So a wonderful thing came out of our idea!!  

Few donations from our volunteers!

School Supply Drive 2012

Today is the start of our annual HAIN School Supply Drive!!

This drive will run from June 1 through August 31, 2012. Everyone is welcome to collect items and donate to local schools, or if you are unsure of where to donate you are still welcome to collect items and mail them directly to HAIN. If you are interested in going that route please email diana@heavenlyangelsinneed.com

Our goal for this year is to collect 150 school supply items. We did a great job with this last year and we are hoping that with your help this year will be just as great! The time for great deals on these supplies isn't that far off, so keep checking. Many stores will run sales on these items before the start of the new school year.

We are collecting the following items:
Pens & pencils
Loose leaf paper & note books
Crayons & Colored pencils

And of course any other school items that are not listed above are always welcome. The above is just a guideline as to what we are looking for. Thanks to all of you for supporting our mission!

Children's Division Bag Drive

Announcing a new event for HAIN's Children's Division!

From January through the end of March 2011 we will be holding a drive to collect and distribute Kids Comfort Bags (also known as Sibling Support Bags). Volunteers are asked to mail these bags to headquarters or to donate locally to fire departments, emergency rooms, police stations, etc. These bags are designed to provide comfort to kids in traumatic situations and include a blanket, small toy and optional activity pad/journal with age-appropriate writing utensil(s) for older kids who can use them. These bags can also be given to the surviving siblings of babies who have passed away. Check with your NILMDTS photographers and NICUs to see if they will be willing to accept and distribute these.

Making the Kids Comfort Bags is very simple. It takes a tote bag, blanket and a stuffed toy for a child. If you are interested in helping out with these or have new items that you would like to donate to this cause please check out our craft forum or email samantha@heavenlyangelsinneed.com for more information.

Craft-A-Thons For January

This post is a little behind but just wanted to remind all that are following HAIN here that each month we host a different craft-a-thon. There is still a little time left in this month so we are going to share the details in case anyone wants to join in last minute.

Crochet-A-Thon: is currently making hats, bonnets and booties
Knit-A-Thon: is currently making gowns and baby wraps
Memory Box-A-Thon: currently working on various memory boxes

If you are a member of our craft forum you can also check there for more details, patterns and chat with other members that are participating in this months challenge.

Keep an eye out because a new challenge will be starting soon for February and we would love to have more volunteers participate.

What HAIN has been up to

Heavenly angels in need has been doing many things
1. We started an online e-newsletter. We had our 18 page quarterly newsletter, but now only offer it 2 times a year Oct/April. Our e-news puts our volunteers in touch monthly. It gives them news right in their email's. The volunteers know what is going on with in our charity right away. This helps bring us all together!
2. We now have craft a-thons. All our athons are based on a particular craft...i.e. knitting, crochet etc..we encourage our new members to jump on board in these. Each month a new project is started, where everyone focuses on this new project.
3.  We also have our challenges that we do 2 times a year. These challenges are about 4-6 months long. We usually do a school supply challenge/sibling support bag challenge as well for the children's division.
4. Don't forget our gift exchanges. They are for christmas and HAIN's birthday. Both are a celebration of our volunteers!
Thank you all who make HAIN a success. If you are interested in volunteering..please join our craft forum http://haincraftforum.org
