    For those that don't know, the Indiana State Prison system has a program for the pregnant women that are incarcerated there. These women, as long as they have less than a certain amount of time to serve, and are non-violent offenders, can keep their babies with them until their release.
    These babies and their mamas have nothing for the babies that is provided by the state prison system, EVERYTHING, clothing, diapers, formula, bedding, etc. is provided for them by donations. When Peggy heard about it, she decided that every baby needs a quilt to grow up with. The quilts that Peggy makes and sends stay with the babies that they are given to, and go home with the babies when their mamas are released from custody. (It's a condition that the prison people agreed to when Peggy offered to send quilts)
    I'm pretty sure that Peggy can use all the help she can get if anyone wants to volunteer or donate!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
