A Little Bit of Sunshine During Quarantine

Recently OCMG sent our clients and their families a little bit of sunshine to help them pass the time during the stay-at-home order. We sent out a package with a giant post-it note, markers, seeds to plant flowers, koozies, and an activity booklet.

We were blown away by all the positive feedback we received.

"Thank you so much! What fun! We needed something to lift our spirits." "You are sew cool! I will get my creative side together and send you a picture!! Thanks sew much, you rock!" "I am very thankful that you gave me and my brother these awesome big papers and these Sharpies! It will give us something to do while me and my brother and the rest of my family are in quarantine, I hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this crisis!" "You made her very happy, all of us actually! Thank you!" "...haven't started the Arts and Crafts yet but putting to good use to try and get the kids organized and focused during distance learning! They have a lot to do today and they loved their checklist!" "Thanks so much for the gift! Hopefully, we can play on them tonight for our family game night if they're done with their work." It was amazing to see families come together to make memories and embrace this project in so many different ways. Here are some of the creative ways that people used the arts and crafts supplies we sent them:

  • Learning/homeschooling

  • Drawing pictures

  • Games - virtual happy hour with Pictionary

  • Encouraging notes

  • Birthday cards

  • Family portraits

  • Quilt checklist

  • Puzzle background

  • Thank you to first responders

We truly love and are inspired by how our client family is responding to these unforeseeable challenges. We are blessed that in some small way we can connect and help create magical memories for them and their families even during this time of hardship.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 ESV
