ALEXANDRA CHILES FOUNDATION
April 27, 2011

Some of my most fun and creative times have been during "Craft Kit Parties" which we hosted many times in our home. Several people gathered to put together one or more types of Craft Kits - which ever were most needed at the time. Anita would arrive with her wonderful array of beautiful beads and other necessary materials, and we had the fun of choosing fun potential combinations...enough for someone to complete the project, but with enough extras that the recipient still had choices! And what wasn't as visible...all the love that also went into each little kit. Knowing how many kits had been requested by different organizations, we knew that at least part of a day could be made a little brighter for a child who could have the fun of creating something beautiful! I wish I still lived in the bay area so I could host or attend more of these gatherings!
