    Mt. Pleasant Cardinals
    Our pod is made up of 75 high school students from the Mt. Pleasant High School Crafts program in San Jose, California, who want to help make a change in our environment and are beginning sewing enthusiasts. Ever year our class learns to use the sewing machine and begins with constructing a Morsbag for donation to the community. Our class would like to thank everyone who donated material to our cause. Majority of the materials used for this project were donations from our Mt. Pleasant community. Stay tuned for photographs of the process and the amazing work!

    Brain Injury Rehabilitation we “provide positive community-based rehabilitation in partnership with people who have acquired brain injury” Community-based rehabilitation is a journey toward a new and valued sense of identity, providing hope and purpose, and with support, assisting with adjustment to a changed life and new roles. It embraces social inclusion, connectedness and empowers the client to live well and participate successfully in the community. Staff work in partnership with the client to establish, or re-connect with, natural support networks that are important to them. They also look outward and support the client to find and use community services, supports, and resources. The therapeutic group activities provide peer support and encouragement to experiment, to try something new.

    You’re welcome Offcuts! I WAS going to say they come round quickly because February IS short – then realised that the latest month with stats is March – and that’s not short at all!! Derr! 🙄

    Yes the monthly total does seem to come round quickly and the list seems to be getting longer as well. Lovely to see the totals. Thank you Beattie.

    I made bags in March and April as part of my Lent service. Now I just need to give them away. It is lovely seeing how many bags have been made every month. Thank you Beattie.

    Sorry Anne-Marie, I only just saw your post. You’re welcome! I find the stats interesting, and it’s encouraging to see such long lists of other pods, also making bags each month.

    Do you have a plan for how you’re going to give your bags away? I find it quite exciting to bag people in the street, but there are lots of ways of giving them away.
