My name is Joyce Lucas.
I am the founder of the Pink Slipper Project.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of women and children are forced to leave their homes and seek safety and healing in shelters across the country. Through participation with the Pink Slipper Project, we can make a difference in the lives of a few of those women and children, and remind them that their someone, somewhere, is thinking of them.
We are so excited to be well into our second year of The Pink Slipper Project. We hope that the challenges we post and the contributions that we receive will inspire you to help us heal hearts and warm toes of women and children everywhere, that have had their lives touched by domestic abuse.
What Is the Pink Slipper Project?
The Pink Slipper Project is an endeavor to warm the hearts and the toes of women and children living in shelters. Our goal is to provide hand-made slippers to as many women and children that we possibly can, adding new challenges throughout the year. As time and donations allow, we will open our arms wide to as many women’s and children’s shelters that we can provide for.
Not only will a pair of handmade slippers help keep the recipients warm, when some have had to leave their home suddenly without any belongings, but will also be a daily reminder that someone cared enough about them to make something special just for them. A simple kindness goes a long way in the healing process.
Your slipper contribution does not need to be pink, and the slippers do not need to be made using our one seam rag slipper pattern, but they do need to be handmade, warm and, of course, new. Whether it be one pair of slipper you are donating or 20, your contribution is just as important.
The Pink Slipper Project - Women Everywhere Stitching to Make a Difference.
To continue our work, We need volunteers to make slippers. They can be knitted, crocheted or stitched with a sewing machine. We have FREE patterns for all types of slippers on our patterns page. Please feel free to use any pattern that you are comfortable with.
Please join the Pink Slipper Project today by writing and telling us how you can help. firstname.lastname@example.org Help us warm the hearts and toes of women and children in need. You will be helping make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
