Hearts For HOPE
It's a pillow party!
(Check out our video above)
Lend a hand towards making some beautiful, hand-crafted pillows for patients recovering from breast cancer surgery. Our sister club in Antwerp taught and encouraged us to start our own pillow group. It has become a consistent part of our club and one of our philanthropic outreach programs. Pillow parties are hosted twice monthly during the year. These soft and colorful pillows are the right size and shape to be held against surgical incisions, bringing comfort and even a little cheer. All pillows are donated free of charge to the UZ Leuven breast cancer ward, which performs around 25 surgeries per week.
No sewing experience is required- you may cut, trace, stuff, stitch or just keep us company! The club provides all supplies.
How you can help:
Donate soft, 100% cotton fabric, minimum 40X50cm in soothing colors - Fat Quarters are perfect!
