Quilts Sent To Christina

Reports about the quilts we've received so far. Mary-anne Rooney gave out quilts yesterday to those affected by fire in the Bendigo.

I (Mary-anne) have been able to give 17 quilts to bushfire victims today. I have put
out the call to locals who personally know victims to contact me and the
calls are coming thick and fast. On lady was the home help lady for two of
the victims. One of her clients is 83 years old and has lost everything -
all she wanted was a rug to put over her knees and her favorite color is
green. I had just unwrapped a quilt posted to me from Bronwen Sayer from
South Australia and so it went straight out the door for this old lady.

Others distributed have gone to a disabled eldery man, a family of four, a
young man and his girlfriend, a member of the local Rotary club, 2 teenage
girls and their parents, 2 young couples ......

I need more quilts as my supply is limited at this stage and people are so
The sunflower strippy quilt
went to an elderly lady, the purple one went to a young woman, the purple
one with the horses went to a 12 year old girl, the fan one went to an 18
year old girl.....the list goes on. People are so grateful and thrilled to
receive these quilts
