    A local woman made a quilt out of shirts from local men. She got the idea when her daughter died and she knew the girls father would have "given the shirt off his back" to save his daughter. Story here:

    It is an amazing story. She reaches out for shirt donations to make this quilt and ends up giving support to those donating. Thank you for sharing.

    The best part is that men can have an opportunity to start healing. So often I think they feel helpless and that they must be strong and not show emotions.
