Thanks For Your Help.

I delivered another 5 quilts, 2 crocheted blankets and some lovely donated toiletries yesterday to the local group which helps homeless teens. I had delivered 10 quilts to them in October and they were thrilled to be able to have enough quilts on hand as Christmas gifts for the teens. The Counsellors said that it means so much to the teens to know that people are thinking of them.
   I always feel more energized after delivering quilts and I'm now working on quilts for women and children who are victims of domestic violence. According to one of the agencies who work in this field, there are an average of 750 women hiding in refuges every night and that is only in the state of Victoria. It's shameful that women and children are not safe in their own homes and need to go into hiding to avoid further abuse.
    Thanks to the QAYG blocks you are making and donating you will bring some comfort to these families, and I also appreciate your help to get more quilts finished and donated.
Hugs, Jan Mac
