Quilt Bloggers Are the Most Generous People I Know..;
As I said, quilt bloggers are the most generous people I know, so I know that you will all want to check out this post at Green Fairy Quilts. Many of you may already know that Judi and Clint Madsen, the owners of Green Fairy Quilts, go on a mission trip to Romania each year, giving quilts, food, and school supplies to street orphans in Bucharest. However, this year there is a greater need for food than anything else, so they will be focusing on that. They travel over there at their own expense, and rely on donations from all of us generous quilt bloggers (and others, I'm sure!) to help fill the needs of these children.
You can read more about their charity on Judi's blog site (click the link above) and I hope when you do, you'll consider donating to this worthy cause. This cause has been near and dear to my heart for a while, as Judi helped sponsor our very first Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge. That year, 61 quilts were sent to Romania as a result of the Challenge. One hundred percent of your donation goes to purchase food and other necessities for these children. They are also hoping to be able to leave some money with their contact in Romania for future food purchases
You can donate by adding any amount to your payment for an order from Green Fairy Quilts, too! Just think - fabric and helping others at the same time!
And if you are unable to donate anything at this time, or for that matter, even if you can donate, please consider spreading the word through your blog or Facebook as soon as possible. Judi and Clint will be leaving in just a couple of weeks, so act now, please!!
