Subject: We received a quilt...6 years ago
Hi Mary!! I was cuddling with my daughter just this morning and we were reminiscing about the quilt we were laying with. So I flipped it over and I read the trademark “Comforts For Kids”, and I knew we needed to send a note.
About 5-6 years ago, my little girl, Emma, was attacked by a dog and needed to get stitches in her face. While we were at the hospital, one of the nurses came by and said she had something for us and would be right back. She came back with a popsicle, and this amazing quilt!! Even at that moment, when she told us that the blanket was donated, I mentioned how amazing it is for someone to spend their own time to help someone else in such a rough time, and not even know just how much they are helping.
So here we are, about 6 years later, and we still love that quilt and we still think about how amazing it is to know that people out there care, in the most self-less ways, and I just need you all to know how much we appreciate you. Thank you so much for your kindness, your time, your generosity, your caring hearts, and thank you for making these quilts. You are all amazing!! And so are your quilts!!
I’ve attached a morning photo of my little girl, Emma, all cuddled with her quilt. I wanted to show you the little girl you’ve helped, because she is just one of many kids you are reaching out to.
Thank you so much, all of you!!!!

This is very low-traffic website. Most of the visits come from within the Eugene-Springfield area and almost all of the other visits are from somewhere else in the U.S. However, there are occasional visits from outside the United States, so just as a matter of curiosity, on 2015-12-20, the flag counter below was started to show visits by country.
