I will freely state that I did not know this even existed until I checked one of the blogs I recently found and this is totally NOT my idea, but I’m spreading the word.
April Wilkerson is a woodworker who’s blog of the day told of an email she’d received about http://www.gardenofinnocence.org/ , how they provide burials and cremations for abandoned and unclaimed children and that they are looking for volunteer woodworkers to make caskets or urns for abandoned and unidentified children.
This brings back a lot of tough memories as my wife and I nearly lost our daughter twice within her first three months of life. I know that there are many, many others out there who have lost children and I can’t say I understand how you feel, but I can get close.
If you can, please contribute to this fantastic charity by making a casket or urn. Plans are available on their website.
Thanks.

Thanks for sharing that site. Seems like a good cause. I’d definitely make a few for them.
