I don't usually utilize this forum to talk about personal things. But tonight, I have a request. My husband and I had an office in Colorado Springs for over 15 years. I still have friends there. Many of them, and those in their community, have been affected by the wildfire that burned over 350 homes.
Do you have a spare quilt to send me to help the families displaced by this event? It is something that I care deeply about; I care about hurricanes, and tsunamis, but I know people who are affected by this. I am always happy to help out with cancer quilts, hospice quilts, quilts for the Quilts of Valor program, but I KNOW Colorado Springs. I spent 15 years traveling there several times a year. It is such a beautiful town; it always filled me with joy to see the "frontier" in person.....blue skies, great air, a wonderful "small town" atmosphere in a great space.
If you could help, please let me know via a comment. I am looking for children's quilts and "comfort quilts" 45 x 60 in size, if possible.
Thanks for listening to me; my heart hurts for entire communities shut down by the effects of this fire. Maybe I'm getting off my duff and doing something for a small community, but it makes me feel good to do something where I actually know people who will benefit from it.
Just leave me a comment if you have something to contribute and I will send you an appropriate address. Guy and I will quilt any tops you send us and send them on to Colorado. Thanks so much for listening.
