Making a difference...one hat at a time
February 2, 2016
Meet Natalie Tataryn, someone who was compelled to do something for the girls living at the Home of Hope, a safe house in Lviv, Ukraine. When she picked up a knitting book and learned to knit at the end of October, 2015 little did she know that her efforts would produce close to 80 hats. The Home of Hope is a home for over 20 young women who found a safe harbor and are hoping to get a good start in their adult life. Many of them come from orphanages, or challenging family situations. The Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate through Home of Hope are providing the girls with life skills and opportunities to get a post secondary education. Natalie especially feels a bond with the girls because she was born in Ukraine; however she was adopted by a family in Manitoba. She wonders what her life might have been like if she did not have the opportunity to live in Canada. Through Natalie's knitting efforts she raised $1,000 for the Home of Hope.
We are all grateful and inspired by Natalie and to all who have supported her dedication and desire to make a difference in the world.
