Once in a lifetime

Do we get to help in such an extraordinary way.  Quilt Haiti has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of.  This  incredible photo shares the hope.  It speaks a thousand words in a matter of seconds.  I've lived with this photo for several days now and I can't believe how a quilt can transform a life but it's more than the material.  It's about the warmth and the hands that have passed over it to get it's to it's rightful destination.  Thanks to everyone involved in this incredible charity particularly to Rebecca who hand delivers them with her heart and soul.  And if you want to do more to help contribute to the cause …watch this video. and reach out to Rebecca

    You and Nancy are killing me with the photos. Truly amazing the people you meet in our journey in life. THIS woman was touched because of something you did at your houses here in CT. Probably while you talked on the phone or sent an email and had a snack. YOU ladies made an impact in HER life. A-mazing.

    The smile on that woman’s face all wrapped up in a Sis Boom quilt brought a little tear to my eye! How lovely in so many ways…

    Oh, the power of grace giving! There’s nothing stronger! What a fabulous venture, and what happy, deserving women that received the gifts! Thank you for sharing!

    I believe everyone should have their own quilt. It takes so long to make a quilt, especially for me, that you’d only do it for love. I’m sure that little lady will treasure her pretty quilt , and I bet it will be passed down from generation to generation

    How awesome! Just seeing the picture of the lady wrapping herself in the quilt truly speaks volumes. To give the gift of time and warmth is the best! Thank you for sharing! This puts a big smile on my face.

    The look of joy on their faces says more than any words ever could. When we give from our hearts, I think we rarely expect to see the fruits of what we gave, but the chance to actually see kindness put in action, it’s truly priceless. It warms my heart to get a glimpse at the appreciation.

    Oh my heck. That is such a beautiful picture I’ve got tears in my eyes. I can’t imagine anything more satisfying than seeing someone comforted by one of your creations, especially after all that country is going through. Wow.
