I got this in the mail from Ladybelle, that is the only name I have and no blog address. I am sorry ladybelle, I don't know how to get you to tell you that I received your lovely pillowcase and to thank you.

I keep getting emails about people still wanting to help. I am just overcome with graditude to each of you for you "Quilters Heart".

We have Lee over at Quilts by Lee who is having a giveaway of 16 fat quarters for anyone who has and are sending care packages to Amerika Samoa.

Now there is Kelly from I have a Notion is doing a giveaway for the same reason. She is offering items from her store and if I get so many packages, she will up the amount. Go check out her blog and see if she can intice you?

So....yes, there still is a need. I have not wanted to burden anyone by asking for more help but these two ladies have offered and Pat, Kaye, Tonya, Micki, Carin, Darlene and many more of you have emailed me wanting to do more but I have not wanted to burden you again. I don't want to make all of you sick of me but Pat lectured me (in a nice way, what are friends for...they just tell you how it is....

I understand the econmic times we are having, I understand that sending packages are costly, I understand that people are sick, tired, busy...whatever the reason...if you can not, please don't feel you have to.

So here is a list: School supplies
Shoes (most wear flip flops)
Pillowcases, towels, sheets
Hygene products (those went really fast)
simple tote
Once again, thank you so much.

Excellent, I will get some things ready, I also have Lady_bells email. So please send me your address, as I do not know where I put it and I will send you her email.

Thanks for the suggested items. It really helps.

And, while there are many great charities (e.g. American Red Cross) I really like to have your help and insights. So please keep the local insights coming and I'll gladly help where I can.

I should have my next package posted to you no later than Mon (I'm out of town this week).

Barb, I like to mail you a package with 2 quilts. Thanks for sharing what is going on and needed. Where can I mail my package?

Pat said...

Between my blog and emails, I have 7 or 8 more boxes that should be sent off to you within the next week. That is a very nice pillowcase you are showing us that was sent to you by LadyBelle. Thanks for showing it here!

I just paid my postage online and the box will be in the mail tomorrow AM! I can't believe I found flip flops in Ohio! It's 53 here on a good day! Seems a small bit for such a large loss, but hopefully everyone together will make a difference!
