We now have a grand total of 108 medicine bags for The Good Medicine Project. Before the middle of next month, I hope to get 32 more so that all 140 children who attend Camp Sanguinity will receive one. If you aren’t familiar with it, Camp Sanguinity is a summer camp for kids with cancer and their siblings, and folks across the world are sending a little love to them.
Sometimes when I open my mail, I can’t stop weeping for joy. Every single bag, from the simplest to the most intricate, is a tangible reminder that people have hearts filled with love. I get notes from people that make me have a tingle down my spine.
For instance, Noriko (whose work you will see further down the page) told me that she live in Kyoto and is a housewife. She participated in the Share A Square program — which was our project for last year. She said:
“I don’t have any children so I’ve made medicine bags as if the children at the camp were mine. It was a very special project for me personally as I felt I could give my heart out to the children and support them spiritually.
I think that every single person who participated feels much the same way. I know the children will feel the blessings that are within these gifts. I feel pretty darned blessed to be “the conduit” for the love you are sending. Thank you all!
