Hurricane Sandy Donations

When our group started the charity project, we had a goal of 25 quilts. We, as you may know have dozens and dozens - many more than 25 - quilts to donate. We never know what our fellow human beings will be facing, but the charity quilts are there for the planned donations as well as unexpected needs.

Most of you have seen the images of the devastation wrought by Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy. Again, your generosity of time and spirit by making quilts is enabling us to provide some comfort to some of those victims. The Charity Girls, Deborah and Jennifer, explain below:

Jen and I are collecting monetary donations for shipping fees so that we can send about 10 or so charity quilts made by the guild members this year to victims of Hurricane Sandy.  We currently have $50 in donations, and need $17 more to cover shipping. Any overages will be used to further support the guild's charity project

Here's the info posted on the forum:
