Raffled quilt
1 Attachment(s)
I am so happy as I found out today that a quilt I had in my cupboard, originally made for a friend's grand-daughter that wasn't urgent to be sent off..., and so I made a donation of it to a fund raiser for people affected in that horrible freak accident up in Queensland which put so many people in hospital with bad burns, 2 ladies eventually passed away. The whole town banded together to help. So I was told today that my quilt brought in $200 !!! :)
So happy I could help!!! Amazing how small towns stick together in times of need!!! :)

I'm sure it will bless both the giver and the recipient.

My sentiments exactly. "It is in giving that we receive"

Very thoughtful of you to give your quilt as a donation. There are no words to describe how proud it must make you feel to be able to help people in a crisis.

How nice you were able to donate, and will be able to have time to make another for the original intention. I will include those injured and killed in the accident in prayers, and also will be praying for all of you that are helping in the recovery of the community.
