NEVER Underestimate the Power of Children

As you know,
I offered some quilt label templates for sale
to save for items on my wish list.
Then I read a story on fellow quilter Nola's blog,
Seems her grandchildren decided it was important
to help a family friend/neighbor
during a time of need.
The main character of this story
is a little preemie named Cru.
Cru stole my heart
and Nola's grandchildren's efforts gave me goosebumps.
I decided my real wish was to help this family,
so my sewing wish list is just going to have to wait.
Please visit Nola's blog
and read her story.
Or go straight to the fundraiser.
There are only 4 days left of this fundraiser,
but they have a ways to go.
And if you feel compelled to help,
as I did,
just come back here and let me know,
and I'll send you the quilt label templates for free.
Please share.

PS.  I forgot to tell you about the sweet little bracelet the kids
made and sent me!  It's the "Band" in
their slogan:
"Let’s “Band” Together and Bless the Miller Family!"

How lovely, teaching children about helping others from the beginning is a gift in itself, and one of the most meaningful.

Karen, your thoughtfulness, generosity, and creative caring touches my heart. The fact that you can use those artistic talents to bless the life of another family makes my day. Thank you for supporting this cause and being a mouthpiece in support to the Miller Family. All our love - Kerri Stuart and her family - "band"ing together for a good cause!
