My friend Carla has a contact with the local newspaper and sometimes when she sends out word that we have a special project, we get coverage in the newspaper. This Sunday we are working on quilts for the town of Weed, Ca and we got an article in the paper.
I plan to put an ad in the paper about the upcoming Science Fair. I had no idea how expensive a small ad in the paper was. Even a quarter page ad costs over $100, so an article like this is great adversiting for our little group. I've already been contacted by people who want to help out. I love it when people come together to offer comfort to hurting people. Imagine if everyone took a little bit of time to help out a stranger. Pretty soon, we would all be friends.
The world would get a little smaller and friendlier and safer. It would be great to know that you would have someone to turn to when you needed some help because you had helped someone in the past.
I look forward to Sunday and meeting the new people and making lots of quilt kits and using up lots of the donated fabric.
