❤️Quilt update!! ❤️
One of my beautiful friends came around yesterday to help me sort out more quilts! We managed to count 93 more, taking our total of quilts to 389!! Absolutely unbelievable. I still have more to put into boxes and count, so that total will rise by lots more! These fires are absolutely devastating, and I’m sure the quilts will offer comfort to those in need. We are waiting until it is safe for us to go into the communities, as many are experiencing lots of donations or some don’t have any stable accommodation as of yet. Not all quilts have been photographed... just some photos from our sorting shenanigans yesterday! Thanks again to all who have donated....We will keep you posted on our travels.
