There have been so many disasters affecting the United States in recent years. Many of us quietly do what we can using our skills to bring a little bit of home back to those who have lost theirs. I am working on quilts for family members who lived in Paradise, California. I live in a different state and sending a quilt is a way to hug them close when I can't be there.

It's very wonderful they do this. A church group I used to belong to, made quilts for children who were placed in juvenile detention. Children that were not able to be placed in group homes or foster homes because they had such extreme behavioral problems. The children knew when they left the facility they'd be able to take the quilts with them. They were twin sized quilts. We got from the facility things they liked and colors and tried to make each of them a quilt we thought they'd like. Sometimes in those facilities, the quilt was the only thing they owned that was actually theirs.
I think what the PPQG is doing is wonderful.
