Care Packages Are Needed In American Samoa

Barb from Bejewled Quilts posted this picture yesterday. Isn't it beautiful. That beauty has power though....and that lovely water washed ashore and took lives and homes. Who wants to show those people that beauty and power can also be healing and bring hope?

The beauty of love and compassion and the power of a package. Send a package to Barb for the people who have thankfully survived this Tsunami and I'll put your name into a drawing for a gift package worth over 100.00....all sewing, stitching and quilting items. You have two weeks to get the packages in the mail and then they only recieve mail twice a week I'll add a week for that. November 10th I will announce the winner of the gift package.

If Barb receives 10 packages ....I'll make it worth 125.00, over 20 and I'll make it worth 150.00 and over 30 I'll make it worth 200.00 and if she recieves over 40 packages....I'll make it worth 300.00.

How does that sound. I don't even know yet what I'll put in that wonderful box. Guaranteed to be a great prize....and the real prize will be the difference you make in the lives of those less fortunate than we are today.

Barb posted the following:
"Lee over at Quilts by Lee, she is offering 16 fat quarters for anyone who sends a care package to me here in Amerika Samoa for the tsunami victims. I thought I would sweeten the pot with two 1/2 yards of my Samoan Fabrics..... She is also including all those that have sent packages into her giveaway. What a great idea....thanks Lee"

So you have a chance to get your name in that one too.....all before the cool is that? Way cool :) right?

Items they need are as follows:
School supplies-pens, pencils, paper, crayons, folders, erasers, paints, etc.
hygene products-toothpaste, toothbrushes, deoderant, soap, disposable razors sanitary products, (everything someone needs to clean up and feel fresh)
shoes - flip flops and sandles are best
clothes -it is warm there so send your summer clothes and your kids summer clothes
pillowcases, towels, sheets

The flat rate boxes are the best and cheapest way to go. Send your packages to: ( read...Andrew Gaddy....but change it to Barbara please)

  1. Kelly, This is really very nice of you to do. I know people in American Samoa can use help and it is nice to know our blogging friend Barb is there to help. And we can help her help. I have sent a package to Barb and currently gathering items to send another one.

    IF by chance I win your giveaway, I would like my prize to be sent directly to Barb in American Samoa. My house sewing room is overpacked right now!

    I do hope your contest encourages others to send items to Barb. Amazing how much fun it is to gather & send supplies to help!
