Generosity and Caring

There are so many stories of generosity and caring…

One of the winning bidders from the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative’s June small quilt auction was Kevin Astle. He paid for his quilt online, as most do, but added a note in the comment section telling us that he wanted it shipped to the next highest bidder as a gift! Turns out the quilt he bid on and won was one that his mother made. He said that he had lots of his mother’s work and wanted to share her talent with others. The bidder whom he overbid called and left a message on our answering machine when she got the quilt she thought she had lost out on. She was understandably surprised and extremely delighted. And then she sent the AAQI a donation!

    Aren’t quilters the most giving people? What a lovely gesture!
