Hands2Help Challenge

For a number of years, I've made quilts and pillowcases for various of charities, mostly local charities, but some national and international ones as well. 

The Honor Flight Quilts that I made in honor of my dad and mom a few years ago were probably the most emotional for me, but quite honestly I get choked up every time I send out a quilt or pillowcase. Feel free to click on the tab above to see the 15 quilts I made or HERE, HERE, and HERE to see part of the progression of making these quilts and the distribution of them. 

Well, I've decided to continue the giving and am taking the plunge to join Sarah and countless others in giving back to the community. 



This year, there are three charities.

Option #1 - Quilts of Compassion

Option #2 - Hurricane Sandy Survivors

Option #3 - Happy Chemo

Sarah has this quote from St. Augustine on her blog and I just think it's wonderful and feel compelled to share it. I think this is beautiful! Don't you? Thanks for sharing it Sarah.

"What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want.
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like"
--St. Augustine       

Why not take a few minutes and check out the information about this challenge and each of the charities? Go to Sarah - Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Of course, to encourage more people to join the fun, there's a giveaway too!  :-)
