Time Well Spent

Got this note from a listener that I had to share with you:

Hi Scott, 

My name is Nikki, I'm 12 years old. I never made a knitted hat before. 

I just made all of these over the weekend, I will be sending these to you soon. I just love making these while my mom drives me to diving. My mom and I also made some and spent a lot of good time together. I think we will be doing more of these soon. 

Thank you for taking all of these with you. 

God Bless, 

Nikki

Knit Pray Make A Difference

Today is Make a Difference Monday. You can do something as simple as share a story, knit a cap or blanket and pray. You can see some of the stories coming from CURE International out of Afghanistan. Learn more about what I will be doing there starting February 28th, click here.

Meet Ali Sina....

In September of 2011, Ali Sina was born with a cleft lip and palate as the youngest of six children to a poor family in Kabul, Afghanistan. Put simply, Ali needs help.

Ali's father, Mohammad, is a cab driver, and his mother stays at home to care for Ali and his five older siblings (3 boys + 3 girls). Life in Kabul is difficult for a poor family, and it became much more complicated when Ali was born.

In the 10 years since the ouster of the Taliban, great strides have been made for women in Afghanistan, with many attending school, working in offices and even sometimes marching in protests. But abuse and repression of women are still common, particularly in rural areas where women are still unlikely to set foot outside of the house without a burqa robe that covers them from head to toe.
