A record breaking year - congrats to all the team members who gave time and creative energy to the process! My heart is so completely full.
I do have a request. I need more caregivers. With this record breaking year of quilts we have many more quilts to give to than we originally thought. I will ship quilts I don't have a problem with that. I'm looking for those that go the extra mile and honestly can't help but care for others. These people are special they are all around us, nurses, doctors, teachers, neighbors, volunteers, psychologist, managers, house wives, house husbands, brothers, sisters, they are everywhere. These people feel, they have high levels of empathy and they are concerned about the well being of others, whether they know you or not. When they see someone who needs something, they feel as well and do everythng they can to comfort and care for those who have a need. Because they feel so much and they give so much for others, they need a little self care. That's what these quilts are for. If you know of anyone that fits the bill and goes the extra mile to make sure that someone is cared for, send me note. Do you have a neighbor watching out for a loved one? A Dr or nurse that goes the extra mile? A Day care provider, one of our submissions was for a woman who but her retirement on hold for three years to care for two precious brothers of a child she watched for years. Please, let's recognize those people just this time. Have you ever been given a quilt? I was given one for the first time fairly recently and I have to say it is the best feeling ever. So lets give that feeling to someone who really cares. Thanks!!
Now that was a posted wasn't it! My goodness. I'll be sharing this at all the linky parties on the sidebar so please stop by all the parties and go get inspired!!
