Every year in February, here in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, the local American Cancer Society holds an auction of many different products, to raise money for all of the many different programs that they sponsor here. Being a cancer patient myself, I know and realize the importance of such a program. I don’t have a lot of money to donate to such a worthy cause, but thought that I would use what wood talents that I do have to help support the program. These are some of the woodworking items that I am donating, in hopes that they might bring in some revenue for the organization. Since donating these items, I have talked to my personal advocate at the center who is also in charge of the children with cancer, she has expressed that the kids there really liked the pull spin tops, so I made an additional 10 tops and gave them to her for the kids. If any of you Lj’s have some free time on your hands, and want to see some kids eyes light up, just make and donate a couple of tops, or yo-yo’s or some simple wood toy to any organization that cares for children with health problems. It’s hard to believe, living in a new electronic and cyber world, but kids do still appreciate some old fashioned toys.
