Relief Share volunteers worked together to create a miracle for our quilt drive!By
A huge thank you to Dottie S, who donated her beautiful Fostoria vase to Relief Share when she heard we needed funds to buy fabric to make twin size quilts for Shriners Childrens Hospital.
Relief Share listed the beautiful vase as a charity fundraiser on Ebay. An ebay buyer, who knows how important charity work is, emailed us with an offer and purchased it. She paid immediately through paypal.
One of our volunteers, Laura B. , called us to let us know there was a Fabric Liquidation sale in town. The sale was only on for two days at rock bottom prices. The purchase of the vase happened at the perfect time for Relief Share to get the much needed fabric for the twin size patchwork quilts at a good price.
The sale of the vase resulted in yards and yards of wonderful 100% cotton fabric for our compassionate service work! The Lord blesses those who are doing their best to help others. We are grateful for the “miracle of the vase”!
Relief Share is making 240 much needed twin size patchwork quilts for sick and needy children who are undergoing medical treatment, including serious surgeries. We have received generous donations towards this project and since January 1, 2013 have donated 44 twin size quilts but still have 196 more to make. Each quilt takes approx 12 yards of fabric, 6 yards of batting, thread and yarn.
So, what can one donation do? With the economy of heaven and the heartfelt work of dedicated volunteers working to maximize donation funds – one donation can do plenty. Just ask the children that will be comforted and snuggled under the patchwork twin size quilts donated to the hospital by Relief Share what your donation means! Everyone’s efforts make a difference!
Do you want to help with the quilts needed for the children in hospital? We hope so – we still have a lot more quilts to make. Please send fabric to Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd, Houston, MO 65483-2225 or send something we can sell to raise the funds to get the batting, thread, fabric and yarn to tie the quilts with. If you are able, a paypal donation to firstname.lastname@example.org would be wonderful, too. We accept all kinds of fabric for the quilts – it doesn’t have to be 100% cotton. We send a thank you letter/tax deductible receipt for every donation received so be sure to include your name and mailing information. We are grateful for your help!
