A Charity Roar, Featuring Jeanub!

Welcome to the newest column here on the Gryffindor blog -  A Charity Roar! Each week I'll be featuring charitable Gryffindors, knitting and crocheting (and spinning and dyeing!) items for charity for their classes, Quidditch, OWLs and more!

This week I'm highlighting Jeanub, who shared a great idea over on the Mungo's for Muggles thread - she makes dish cloths to include in food bags given out through her church!

Turning in a Christmas-themed dishcloth for Arithmancy this month, and shared her story - she and several of her crafty friends work up dishcloths over a period of time, and on the appointed "food distribution day" they add one to each bag of food heading out to a family in need. The dish cloths must be quite a pleasant surprise to folks!

I love the idea of finding a way to give locally to others, helping to brighten someone's day in a new way. I wouldn't have thought of doing something like this, but you can bet it's gone on my "ways to donate" list for the future!

Jean, thanks for your charitable heart!

Want to share your charitable creations with the rest of the Gryffindor House? You could be featured here next week - simply be sure to share your charitable creations in the Muggles For Mungoes thread!
