I LEFT MY HEART IN AMERIKA SAMOA - Samoan Quilt finished


Some of you have seen this quilt on facebook.  I am trying to get awareness out about a fairly new school in Amerika Samoa called Ta'iala Academy, they need help.  Their teachers are working for less than minimum wage because they believe in the school and what they are trying to achieve.  Some of the kids have to drop out because their parents can not afford the tuition, so this quilt is my way of helping.

You can go on their site and have a look around.

This quilt will be raffled off..

They are also having a luau in Mesa, Arizona so if you are living there and want to attend, you can contact me and I can help get that information to you.
