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!

Got your attention, did I?!
If anyone has some spent shot gun shells, we would love it if they would donate them to our charity. Relief Share can give you a tax deductible receipt for them as they will come to our charity to be donated after they are made into Christmas lights. Yep, you read right. They make the prettiest Christmas lights.
I just finished watching my son in law and daughter make some for their Christmas tree this year. Laura had ordered some off the net and when they came they were only 8 feet long. Yeah right, that really doesn’t go far. She came over to my house to see if I had more white mini light strings and I had a brand new box of 100 feet. Josh had figured out how to make them himself and they turned that string of mini lights into the prettiest Christmas lights you ever saw by using spent shot gun shells – recycling at it’s best! Cost free, too.
I know a lot of folks that would love them. Relief Share volunteers will make the shot gun shell Christmas lights up and donate them to the those who don’t have any money for Christmas decorations We also have a charity flea market booth and when we can take care of all the needy, if we have any left over, we will use them for fundraiser in our charity flea market booth, though probably next year for the fundraising with them as there isn’t enough time to do that this year as well as do the donations as we always take care of the sick and needy first.
Here are pictures You may even want to make some yourself!
If you don’t have a glass eye wash dish, use anything that has a curved bottom that you can hammer the shot gun shell into to push the bottom concave.
Using the shot gun shells, you can make lights by pushing clear mini lights into the end of the shells and closing the top with the screwdriver pushing the plastic in place so they will stay on the mini light string.
All that effort is worth while (and it’s a lot of effort), will make get these:
That look like this:
That look like this:
Note: the black ones are too opaque to do much but the other colors, especially the green, red and yellow work great.
The address to send the shot gun shells to is: Relief Share, 6078 Lundy Rd., Houston, MO 64583-2225. If you have clear mini light strings that you’d like to send as well, that would be wonderful. We will send a tax deductible receipt with your thank you letter. We are a 501 (c ) 3 IRS approved non profit.

A huge thank you to a sweet lady who shows she cares about sick and needy children with love in action!
Exciting news! Our beautiful baby doll fundraiser on ebay brought $157.50. We are thrilled. Not only will the babies at the hospital get the help they need, there will be a happy new Mommy out there for this sweet little one. Thanks again to Sabriam Garcia at Eden’s Little Ones for donating the baby!
This fundraiser is to help us purchase the materials needed to provide Shriner’s Hospital with 240 twin size quilts for their patient’s beds.
Shriner’s Hospital in St Louis provides surgery and medical care for children from birth to 21. Many of these precious children need major surgery, some cannot walk some have missing limbs and others need skeletal medical attention to be able to function correctly.
We have seen with our own eyes the miracles that take place in Shriner’s and witnessed a little baby girl been given the gift of being able to walk after a long time in body casts and after a number of extensive surgeries. This precious baby’s family was not charged one dime for her care – Shriner’s Hospital is truly a blessing to the sick and needy children who desperately need help.
Relief Share is a non profit 501 (c) 3 charity with wonderful volunteers who are willing to give of their time and talents to sew the much needed quilts for the children who need a warm quilt to snuggle in after major surgery. The children need their strength to heal, not to simply stay warm.
YOU can help a child today by providing the funds to help us get the materials needed to create the much needed quilts.
To date we have sewn and donated 37 twin size quilts to Shriner’s Hospital. Help us get the materials to finish the rest.
Flannel, batting and fabric is needed along with thread and funds to ship the quilts. Money from this fundraiser will bless many sick and needy babies lives.
ON TO THE AUCTION ———

What better way to raise funds for babies and children by offering a baby of your very own to love, cuddle and hold.
