Big O Blog World (BOB World)

It used to be that you knew everyone in your town and if someone needed something everyone pitched in if they could. Now we live so far away from our families and friends I have managed to connect with people all over the world and now my community is global. I'm sure this is true for all of you as well.
So when the Tsunami hit American Samoa it became real for me. I know someone who lives there now, Barb from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb Blog. So instead of it being another disaster on television it became very real for us. Once I heard that Barb was safe I felt some relief.

I went through the house looking for things to put into boxes to send for the children and families. I brought up a video of the Tsunami in American Samoa for my boys to see so they would understand why these little children needed some of their things.

Zach wanted to decorate a card for them.
I could not help but notice how a 5 year old communicates I'm sorry you are sad. He first draws a frowning face then a smiling one. I think he communicated his message very well...and oh so precious too.
Barb said to send priority flat rate boxes. It cost us only 1/2 as much to ship these as it would have been to ship in our own boxes. Great idea Barb.

Grateful Smiles, Kelly


  1. What all do they want? Household items, clothing, toiletries, etc....?

  2. What's an address to send things to?
