Today the local newspaper posted an article on the upcoming fundraiser we are doing in George's memory. We would rather be celebrating with him here but we are doing the best we can do. The events for the fundraiser are coming together but there is still a ton of work to do. I have to get some volunteers to take tickets and run different things that day since I know I will be running around like a crazy lady. In the end it will have all been worth it.
We are also getting a quilt that was lovingly made for our family with George's things that meant the most to us. I cannot wait to see it. The woman did not know us but heard of George and offered to do this for our family. We were so very blessed to have this because I know it made moving forward easier, if that is possible, and also allowed us to be ok with donating his clothing and other items to good causes. I would like to eventually take a quilting course myself so that I too may be able to help another family in their hour of need. I will be sure to post pictures.
We are on the Front Page!!!! The link is above!!!
George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.
