Yesterday was the Christmas gift sort at the Humanitarian Service Project in Carol Stream. After shopping for craft supplies and packing up the kits, Q and I loaded up the car and headed over to the warehouse for delivery and some gift sorting.

We joined a large group of people helping out yesterday and talk about an efficient group of hard workers! We sorted, counted, bagged and tagged two giant batches for gifts for families in the area and even had time to sort donated books PLUS eat a slice of pizza (thanks HSP!). The experience of helping with the gift sort this year was great - just knowing that we were a small (but important) part of a family's holiday was very rewarding.

In addition to all the gift sorting shenanigans yesterday, I was also very excited to see that Sheila at HSP mentioned QQ on the HSP blog December 7th! Here is the link to the feature!

Sheila had e-mailed me earlier in the month after she had found my post about doing the Creativity Kits. I was so happy to learn that she was just as excited as I was about the little project! It was nice to meet her and other staff members yesterday. We are already looking forward to the next project!
