I thought of a couple things to wish for, late as it is in the month.
Colorful bandanas. In addition to other projects I'm working on, I like to make the bandanas into something that will slip onto a dog collar. I hope to send some to the Old Friend's Senior Dog Sanctuary in Mount Juliet, TN. I love to follow them on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/OldFriendsSeniorDogSanctuary
Any odd leftover Fat Quarter of fabric to make into a bandana.
Spools of thread, any color, half used spools, etc.
And as in previous months, wide bias tape. Or blanket binding bias tape, but only if you have it lying around. It is expensive.
Thanks for looking.
Late to be asking, but why not. :)
Foreign newspaper...any foreign language (Spanish, Chinese, French, whatever) - just a few sheets is fine. I am using them in an art project.
Old book with rag-like pages...you know the ones, they look torn on the edges. Usually they are cheap bookclub editions of popular novels. I am using watercolor paint on the pages and it needs to be that type of paper that sucks up the liquid, not the slick smooth pages books are made of today.
Vintage pictures of ladies in gowns...Victorian, Civil War era, etc. Printed in old catalog reprints for whatever. I need these for a fashion collage I am making.
Thank you for reading my requests. I may post them again in September. Probably nobody still checking this topic so late in the month.
I apologize to anyone who is horrified I am using old books for art work. Think of it as giving them new life!!! LOL
Please, please, please say prayers for those in Texas who are flooding and then trying to recover. Pray for those who go to volunteer and help with the recovery. As many of you know, I have seen this first hand in the past year here in WV. Until you see and are part of a flood, you don't really know how bad flooding is to the morale and to the environment surrounding everyone. We are still recovering here and hope that Texas can recover from this devastating event. If anyone knows of a member who is flooded or a member going to help with flooding, please direct them to me so that I can see what I can do from afar to help.
If you are planning to send material things to the area, a few suggestions from our experience:]
hand held can openers (we didn't have enough around here)
charcoal and lighter fluid
women's monthly products
dog and cat collars
plastic bags of every size and shape
crayons and coloring books or small hand toys to keep children busy while parents are trying to clean
school supplies after they start school again
(I know these aren't the most common items that are requested but these are items that are sorely needed when people are in centers and then at home trying to pick up the pieces.)

OK, I have re-read the RAOK rules, and it is not allowed to ask for donations, no matter how great the need may be. Here is the standard language that PBS uses:
