My favorite part of this Regional Coordinator thing is when I get to show you whose quilts are going where. Together we (the Northeast Region team of QBB) have sent out 105 quilts and 48 packaged kits since January 2016. OUTSTANDING! Awesome! And yay us!! This latest group is going to the Syrian Refugees. It feels so good to be doing something for those poor people, doesn’t it. Earlier in August we sent 9 specifically for the babies. These larger quilts will go to the trauma centers where the older kids who are so damaged by war are being treated. The need is great, as you know.

As long as we have strength in our fingers, I hope you will continue to sew and I will facilitate getting your treasures to these people. I am humbled by the whole process.
