A couple of weeks ago, I was scouring blogs online. I enjoy reading Sarah Jane's blog regularly and decided to go see what she has been up to lately. She wrote a post about various people whom have sewn with her fabric all over the web. About midway down, there was a blurb about a lady by the name of Lauren whom is raising money for Duke University's Brain Tumor Research. She LOVES Sarah Jane fabric and so she naturally incorporates her line into many of her quilts that are auctioned off on her blog. Lauren's daughter,Charlotte is the reason why she is raising money for brain tumor research. Charlotte has a brain stem and spinal cord tumor.
It really took me aback and so I had to venture over to Lauren's blog, Charlotte's gRACE for a Cure to check this out! After a few minutes, I knew I wanted to donate a quilt to her and so I proceeded to look for more info on Lauren. I started wondering where she lived as well. Half way down her About page, I spotted it! She lives in NC and about 20 min. from me!!!!!! It was a sealed deal from that point!
After a brief email to Lauren,I knew which quilt I was going to donate to her.
Charlotte is the sweetest little girl you will ever lay your eyes on:):):)
It filled my heart and soul to help this little girl. Her mommy placed
my quilt on her daughter's feet briefly and she squealed with joy and said
"Oh yeah!" She loved it!! Just.filled.my.heart.
Quilts are sooo powerful, joyful and necessary!!!!!!!!
It gets even better!!!!
Lauren informed me that she has enough quilts to auction off through April. Therefore,the quilt I donated will be going to the 5K at Duke University on April 20th. It will be showcased in front of around 4,000 people. I am SOOO beside myself with excitement!!! I cannot wait to see what this quilt will do!!!!!!! (Lauren is going to keep me posted and I will let ya'll know!)
Hope through quilts:)
He is Risen!!
