Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Kids Helping Kids...


Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and time to get your whoop whoop on!!  And here's a reminder for you long-time whoopers, and maybe some new info for you newbies - it doesn't have to be a finish for you to link up!  It can just be making progress on a project if that's what made your heart sing this week.  So be sure to join in, even if you don't have a finish!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*

In the process of working on the Hands2Help Challenge, I was asked by our children's pastor if I could help him with a project.  The grade-school children were learning about and praying for the country of Ethiopia, and he wanted to do something tangible that would give the children a sense of mission and connection with the children of Ethiopia.  Of course, my first thought is quilts!  So we worked together to provide the kids with an opportunity to help make quilts for orphans in Ethiopia, that will be delivered through Quilts Beyond Borders.  Here's the result!


I hope you'll click on the picture so you can see all those smiling faces even better!  They were so proud of the twelve quilts that will go to orphans in Ethiopia.  The solid colored strips in each quilt contain handwritten notes and drawings from the kids.  Prayers for the orphans, reminders that God loves them, even drawings of kids playing football!

It was a great project and now the children know that there will be something tangible in Ethiopia that shows those children that there are people praying for them here in America.

Whoop Whoop!!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!  

What has made you smile this week?

 

What's made you dance the happy dance?

Share!  We want to dance along with you!!

The party will remain open until Sunday at midnight -

Be there or be square!!

Hugs!

Sarah

PS - Remember that Sunday starts the linkup party for this year's Hands2Help Charity Challenge quilts!  Even if you didn't participate, be sure to check back and see what everyone has made - there are some really neat quilts this year!!  And hopefully it will inspire you to join in the fun next spring.....

  7. I see the faces of many future quilters. These kids have made a life-long memory they will be able to pass down to their loved ones. As I get older, it is all about sharing "memories".
