Ears To You!

In my last post, I wrote about the 7000 Bracelets For Hope charity.  This time I’m going to tell you about Ears to You, in case you haven’t heard about them!

Ears to You is a charity that accepts earring donations to give to people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatment.  Their mission is to lift the spirits of cancer patients by providing a moment of joy and hope.

I first heard of this charity from Amy Freeland from Copper Diem blog.   She has been donating earrings to this charity for several years, and these were two of her donations. 

I have also personally donated earrings to this cause, and you can too! Here are some guidelines from their web page and their address as well.  Here’s the link!  I just found out you can donate hats as well! 

Earrings

  1. All earrings must be lead and nickel-free.  Anything that touches the ear must not have these metals in them.
  2. Earrings can be any style, size, color, design, etc.  There are
    women and girls of all ages and preferences so the more variety we have,
    the better we can serve the patients who receive the earrings!
  3. If you are local to the Medina, Ohio area, we often host groups at
    the Potomac Bead Company to make earrings for Ears To You.  It could be a
    make one, take one night- you pay a flat fee per person (around $10)
    and you make one pair of earrings to keep and one to donate to Ears To
    You.  If you are out of this area you could do this at your local bead
    store too!  Use our contact form to find out how to schedule this event.
  4. Please put earrings into a padded envelope or box and mail all donations to Ears To You, PO Box 190, Hinckley, OH  44233.

Susan Kennedy Susan, the owner of SueBeads, started making glass beads in 2005 because she loved lampworked beads so much, but wanted to make her own instead of buying them on ebay! She also makes enameled components and dabbles in polymer clay, but her first love is glass. She has attended jewelry-making classes at ArtBLISS and has taken classes from Barbara Lewis (torch fired enameling) in addition to several classes at the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
  1. Thanks for spreading the word about this awesome organization, Sue!
