$10,000 +

The mail man just brought me more envelopes, along with a beautiful pink and shades of brown quilt.  The checks added up to $700 and our total received is now $10,220.   Fantastic job you’ve all done!

The quilt has some embroidery on it . . I’ll get pictures soon but I can just see some young lady loving this quilt!  Thanks Karen G.

    Wow, Judy; you’ve really motivated people. Good work! Now, let’s see…you offered two quilts if the total was more than $2,500 (if I remember right). Maybe you won’t have to take *any* extra quilts with you to Texas! 😆 And Joplin will be rebuilt much sooner than anybody thought. ::fingers crossed::

    That’s just amazing! I bet the Joplin Red Cross folks will be thrilled when you roll up with all the donations! Thanks for doing this.

    Just wondered if we need to donate quilts to you so that you will not have to give all your quilts away!!! This is so wonderful. Judy C sends her best

    Hi Judy, I am really pleased that the contributions are adding up. I have a non-related question. Do you really get mail on Saturdays????

      Yes! They’ve talked about stopping Saturday delivery but either they never did it or the news hasn’t made it to our little town! 🙂
