DANG!!! I missed it!

Yesterday was my Blog-A-Versary. I missed it. Now how funny is that? So three years ago I started What Are They Doing Now. It is hard to believe how time flies.


This year I am not going to do a reader give away. But I am going to give a quilt away to a local group. Not to sure yet who. I am going to see what strikes me to make this weekend and then decide where it is going. I am also going to give away 6 pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer for the Eagle Scout project.

This next year I challenge all my readers to DO something to make a difference. Donate a quilt or pillow cases to a group that can use them. DO something more than say you support a group give your time or talents to show your support. If your not sure who you want to support here are some that I help:
Adopt A Hero
Packed With Pride
Quilts of Valor
Homeless Shelters
Women's Shelter
Veteran's Hospitals

There are also emergency relief groups that need help. Right now you can help flood victims in Ireland and the people in Haiti.

If you THINK your talents can't benefit a group you are wrong. Raise money by walking or running to find a cure, let me know I'll sponsor you. Heck Disneyland is doing a campaign Give A Day Get A Day. Donate one of your days to a charity and they will give you a ticket for a day at a park. There is so much WE all can do without spending a ton of money. Make this the year you make a difference.

That is a great idea - to make a quilt for a worthy cause!

Yes you have some mighty good causes and you must be sewing up a storm for these causes as you have not been posting. It was good to talk to you the other day.
