To my great surprise, not long after I posted that I would like to start a drive for 900 pillowcases for The Mary Bridge Children's Hospital, I received a message from someone on the staff thanking me for my efforts. And guess what. our little project is on their Facebook page!! If you are on Facebook, just go to their page and you will find the post dated March 13th.
I have been even more inspired and amazed by all of you who have offered to help. Yesterday, I received two packages, one from Linda and another from Meegan. Both packages contained 10 pillowcases.
At this point, a number of you have pledged cases. I even have a pledge from Spain!! A lady here in Chicago is donating fabric and another lady who recently opened a sewing studio has offered her studio for a day of making pillowcases!!
If you would like to get in on the fun, it is not too late!! Even if you can only make one pillowcase, it will be greatly appreciated. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you would like to participate. In upcoming posts, I will start giving you a count as to where we stand in our journey toward 900 pillowcases. Here is a link to the pattern, http://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/00569201012271239106026.pdf, and here's a link to the original post, http://www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2013/03/pay-it-forward-can-you-help.html
To those of you who have pledged to help, thank you for helping me make this happen. There is truly strength in numbers.
