It's Memorial Day weekend, and while for some of us that means a trip to the lake, time to pull out the white capris and flip-flops, a very needed and appreciated day off, or a chance to light up the BBQ, for others it has a much deeper significance.
Operation Family Fund is an organization whose mission (from their website) is to "assist the injured and families of the those who have been injured or killed as a part of the Global War on Terrorism, whether domestic or abroad, military or civilian, with financial grants for transitioning to their new circumstances and achieving financial self-sufficiency" (www.operationfamilyfund.org)
They are staffed by volunteers, with low overhead -- All donations go directly to the families needing help.
Because I made two "Garden Stars and Stripes" runners, I am blog-auctioning one of them, and asking my fellow quilt and fabric-lovers to consider donating to this organization.
To sign up for the auction -- let me know which runner you would like (Option 1 - pieced border or Option 2 - woven border), and your bid amount. You can also leave a comment if you leave a donation to the site (it's easy -- they even take paypal).
Happy Memorial Day Weekend, and a big thank you to all our Veterans, Soldiers, and Warrior Families!
I'm starting the bid at $50.
Auction closes at 6:oo PM PST on Tuesday, June 1.
(Make sure I have a way to get a hold of you)
Happy Memorial Day!
