June- American Red Cross

Thank you everyone for helping raise money in May for Great Strides to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis!

I was born in Florida, lived in Utah and now live in Ohio but I consider Georgia my home. I am a Southern Girl through and through! In April, my hometown was hit by a tornado and even though all of my family and friends were safe, there are many who were not so fortunate. This picture was taken by my brother's girlfriend of her neighborhood and it is only a glimpse of the devastation. Over the last 6 weeks, it has been a rare occasion to turn on the news and not hear a story of a tornado ripping through a small southern town or to hear about the Mississippi River floods. This spring has not been kind to many people.Rebuilding will take a lot of time and a lot of money. Since the needs are great from Joplin, Missouri to Sunnyside, Georgia; we have decided to give 10% of June's sales to the American Red Cross for their tornado and flood relief efforts.

  1. What a wonderful outreach! Just found your shop and am in love with several patterns so maybe June is the month for me to purchase! :)
