The Mitten Miracle

For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you’ll know this story, but for those who don’t, here is our Christmas miracle, excerpted from our Fb post, December 7th, the day before Winter Woollies Distribution:

Sometimes in your life, you get the opportunity to glimpse a miracle first-hand. For me, today was one such time.

For the last couple of weeks, our Handmade Hugs crew had been concerned that we weren't going to have enough product, especially mitts and gloves for little ones, to meet the requests from our clients.

It was unbelievable that we should get orders for 400+ mitts in the last three days of our countdown so we put out a call for help and it was answered in such a remarkable way. Mitts (and gloves) started coming in, in ones and twos, in ten and twenties and then, just today, in fifties and hundreds and two hundreds! It was incredible to watch -- all those that we met face-to-face were beaming and so pleased to help, those who left gift bags included notes of encouragement and offers of more help.

At the first count, we had 113 pairs, at the second count, there were 93 more, in the last 24-hours, we received a whopping 485 MORE! And then, it appeared we were going to be just a tiny bit short and one of the volunteers who was helping to box up our orders, put out a personal call and, Voila!, 50 more pairs of mitts arrived. We filled all the orders and the wish lists and still have a few mitts left for emergencies over the remaining winter months.

I haven't had time to do the final disbursement count but I just had to share this incredible Christmas miracle. Thank you just doesn't cover it, but it's what I have. We live in an amazing and supportive community. We've been touched by many, and today, thanks to that generosity, we, in turn, have been able to touch many more.

As Tiny Tim said, those many years ago, "God bless us, every one."
