We Believe...

..that the solution to inequality, pain, suffering, and lack in the world is ‘those that have’ sharing willingly from the heart with ‘those that have not’ who are sick and/or needy.

Warm clothing and bedding for babies, quilts for the aged or ill, books for the disadvantaged, essentials and household goods for those who have lost everything in floods, house fires, or due to job loss; these are just some of the need we assist with. You can help.

Relief Share volunteers are busy making baby quilts with the weather getting colder

By

Fall is coming and that means babies need snuggling in warm baby quilts.  Relief Share volunteers are having a ball making soft cute quilts for little ones to be welcomed in to the world with.

Baby quilts made by Relief Share volunteers for sick and needy babiers.

Relief Share is thrilled that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) sisters made 6 baby quilts at the activity night on Tuesday.  One baby blanket was given out right at the meeting to a sister to take for a little baby girl soon to be born. It was a cute Winnie the Pooh quilt tied with bright pink yarn. The quilts were made by Jan Stice, a long time Relief Share volunteer who is proficient at making gorgeous quilts, the sisters in attendance tied all the baby quilts to get them ready for donations out to the sick and needy.

Jan Stice was instrumental in Relief Share donating 450 twin size quilts over the space of 4 years to the St Louis Shriners Childrens hospital and also 30 quilts donated to the chemo unit at the West Plains Hospital in Missouri.

President Carol Green took 5 of the baby quilts directly from the meeting to the maternity ward at Texas County Memorial Hospital.  They were delighted to get them for their sick and needy babies born at the hospital.

Would you like to help?  Baby quilts are 36 x 45 and toddler quilts are 45 x 60.
You can help by :
a.  Making and donating a baby quilt (or more)
b.  Sewing the top for a baby quilt and we will put a back and batting on it and finish it
3. Donate supplies to make baby quilts – fabric, batting, yarn, etc
4. Donate to Relief Share through Paypal  - send a paypal payment to info@ReliefShare.org and we will purchase needed supplies for the quilts.  Remember that no one at Relief Share is paid, ALL of us are volunteers and every penny goes directly to the needs of the sick and needy.

Our address is Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd,, Houston, MO 65483-2225.  We are non profit charity, registered with the IRS.  Please include your mailing address so we can send you a thank you and a tax deductible receipt.

Feel free to encourage your church groups, community groups or even family to make and donate baby quilts to keep little ones snuggly and warm.  While we LOVE donations for the babies and their families, we also strongly encourage you to do charity work right in your own community.  If everyone simply reached out to those in need in their own areas – there would be no more lack in the world…only love :-)
