Blessings Friday: Giveaway of Love Winner

The winner of the Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW) charity give-away is …

Shannon of If Sew blog left the following comment about her charitable works:

“We donate yearly to a local non-profit called
COTS, they provide services to homeless people and have transitional housing for homeless families. I have donated lots of our gently used outgrown baby items to them as they help quite a few families with small children and are always looking for baby items. My quilt guild makes quilts for them monthly. I just joined the quilt guild and plan to start helping out with the quilts, its a great way to practice new quilting skills and give warm and cozy quilts to people in need.”

Shannon, please email me (link in sidebar) with your full name and mailing address so I can make the donation to SCAW of a bedkit for a homeless child in YOUR name. To save them money on printing and postage, I’ll have the gift card announcement sent to you via email.

Thank you to all of you for sharing the good works you do. I learned much from your comments about different ways of helping others and hope you did, too.

That's great!
This was a contest in which I think we all win - because someone who needs help is getting it.

Take care.

That was a wonderful charity to choose, June, since Sharon not only gives contributions to them but is also helping them with her time by helping to make quilts for them to use.
