Like everyone else, my heart was torn in half upon hearing of the news of the school shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. I have five children and three grandchildren and I just can't wrap my mind around this whole thing. Of course, my mind immediately turned to quilts and how I would love to give one to each family who lost a child or loved one in this unbelievable tragedy. Then I thought of all the children who were affected, just because they went to school. So I did some research . . .
There are almost 700 children and 39 teachers at Sandy Hook. I began to wonder, is it possible to have that many quilts donated, when everyone is so busy with the holidays, so we could give one to everyone??? I never would have thought that giving quilts to wildfire victims and then 325 to Hurricane Sandy victims was possible, but we did it!
What do you think??? Can we do this??? I don't know how else to bring a little bit of comfort to the friends and families involved, but I just have to do something . . .
