takeheartxo Spreading love one crochet heart at a time

Update posted by Louise Scrivener On Sep 30, 2020

We have had SO many donations, we are BLOWN AWAY by the support we've received!! However, on getting down to our last £30 (yes really!! The majority of your donations have been spent on stamps) we decided it was time to take action. Enter Seema's Sunflowers. An amazing new recruit to our crochet army - Seema learned how to make the Sunflowers using our own pattern - then sent us a BOX FULL OF THEM! We asked for donations in exchange for a sunflower - and we made £124 WHOOP WHOOP! Thank you to everyone who has donated, we're super proud of the crochet army of love we are together xxx

Finance Update :-)

Here is a quick update, now that we're getting close to 5,000 hearts out there... it's time to let you know where the money is being spent.

The biggest spend is obviously on stamps (nearly 65%!!), with stationery coming in second at nearly 20%. Then there has been a small spend on wool - although we mostly rely on donations of hearts for this, and of course the fees paid here for GoGetFunding and also PayPal.

We still have a little left in the pot, and more donations coming in.... so all in all, we're doing amazingly. A perfect opportunity to say THANK YOU, we really do appreciate your support,

With love,

Louise and the team

Time for an update!

We are still working hard to carry on sharing the love. We are continuing to post out hearts and had a lovely picture sent of our hearts on Golden Gate Bridge!!

Last week we went to a retirement home to talk to some residents about our project. We had the great idea of recruiting some heart makers, but seem to have ended up agreeing to make forget-me-nots for Dementia awareness month instead!!

We have lots of plans for more visits over the next few months and we will be taking lots of pics and sharing on social media.

I hope you are following us on Twitter (@takeheart_xo) and Instagram (@takeheartxo) for regular updates and pics of our antics!

Take Heart... you are loved xx

What an amazing morning!! We started at 7.30am and shared hearts around Kenilworth today to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day 😁 We left out around 250 hearts including a jar of hearts at our local bar/cafe (where we also needed a coffee by this point!!).

I couldn’t resist returning this afternoon for another walk, and we only found a few hearts still up!! The feeling was amazing 🤩🤩🤩

We’ve had messages on FB and Insta today from people who have found them, and also messages from our lovely heart sharers up and down the country.

The crochet heart love continues... and all because of your amazing donations of time, energy and money. Thank you 😘

A resources delivery!! With stocks of packs running low I decided to get ahead and order in more resources. With more hearts and labels on their way (and a train journey to fill with heart making ❤️ at the weekend) I will soon have a basket full of hearts ready to send out

I skipped to the Post Office this morning, carefully spending some of your lovely donations on stamps. A HUGE thank you for your donations - today I sent out 213 hearts, going across the UK and even to America! I've now set up a paypal link, and a separate account.... I will only be spending donations on:

  • Stamps!! (biggest investment)
  • Envelopes (3 sizes ... for individual hearts, packs of 5 and larger requests)
  • Bags / stickers (to package the hearts)

I will add to this list if I think of anything else!

Thank-you... can you believe we're now up to 2113?!

However I'm on to tomorrows post already and have 60 more....
