An Opportunity to Help

The news out of the Oso, Washington area is terrible. Since one of our own, Nichole Webb Rivera, was deeply affected by this tragedy, this seems so “local” to so many of us.

I’ve seen firsthand how generous and caring quilters can be. You all amazed me when you sent quilts and monetary donations for Joplin, MO after the tornado and for the fire victims in Texas when we first moved here, and again when the explosion devastated West, Texas, and the residents of Oklahoma after the tornadoes last year. Now is a chance for us to help out another area.

    this is very local for me (the diverted traffic now goes past my town) Hubby even works with a guy whose house was destroyed. Luckily, they had gone to town just 20 minutes before the slide, so they are safe, but have lost everything but the clothes on their backs and the car they were driving. Thanks for your part in helping with this tragedy!

    So incredibly sad. I chipped in what I could. Perhaps when payday comes, I can send a little more. There was a note this afternoon that the funds will be shared for funeral expenses in the town. I cannot even imagine. My heart just breaks for Nichole and for all there.

    Just an hour north of me. One just doesn’t expect this type of devastation in their neighborhood. And with more rain expected, it’s going to be difficult for everyone here. So kind of your friend to help in this way

    This morning’s paper said this tragedy may exceed that of the 1980 eruption of Mount Saint Helens.. Photos from the area show unbelievalbe devastation. Many people are still missing. It’s very sad.
