Weaving Wellness supports moms of sick children at Hasbro

Weaving Wellness has arrived in Newport, Rhode Island via a New Jersey resident and hardworking charity caregiver, MaryJanine L. "Stay Strong" totes are being put together for moms of sick children at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence. Knitters and crocheters are being asked to provide prayer shawls for those caregivers of Hasbro's patients. Please read on to find out how you can help RI's sick children and their moms in this charity knitting and crochet project.

There are several ways you can help:

By the way, MaryJanine, tells me, the RMcDH in Providence is expanding to 28 rooms from 14.
