Last year I made a few quilts
that would only be used to help other people.
So, this year I have been looking for good causes to donate those quilts to.
So far, 3 are gone.
I mentioned the last 2 in the previous post.
The third was given to a girl named Aleesha.
Aleesha was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer.
I found her story on Facebook from a friend of a friend.
I have not met her before, and maybe never will.
But circumstances like hers are the whole reason I made these quilts last year.
Last Saturday there was a benefit auction to help with her medical bills.
This is the quilt:
See the full post about this quilt here.
I don’t know how much the quilt sold for,
but I am glad I could help.
I remember when my beautiful aunt Sandi was diagnosed with Leukemia.
There was a benefit for her at the local golf clubhouse
and the line was out the door the entire night.
The love and support we could feel was overwhelming.
There were so many items there to be auctioned off
all donated by people I have never met,
to help those in need.
I am thankful that I was able to pay it forward and do the same for someone else.
Finding her story was one of many answers to prayers.
I have been praying to find ways to share my talents with others.
To lift people up,
to encourage and motivate,
and to bring happiness into people’s lives.
I am thankful that I have been able to do that through my quilting.
Be great to each other.
