Here are three opportunities to do a “good thing.”
1. As you may have heard, Libby Lehman suffered a ruptured aneurysm on April 30th. Following surgery to repair the aneurysm, she had a stroke. She is improving, but this will be a very long recovery. Follow her recovery at CaringBridge where her family is journaling her progress.
There will be a benefit auction for Libby Lehman on Friday, August 16th at the AQS Show in Grand Rapids, MI. If you can’t attend but would like to help, send Libby a card:
Houston, TX 77002
If you want to do a little more, please enclose a check with your card made out to “Libby Lehman Medical Fund.” Any amount will be appreciated even a few dollars. Or, click on the Guestbook at CaringBridge to leave an encouraging comment. Libby has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. She has a very long road ahead of her.
2. John Flynn is the patron saint of the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. He has supported us financially at International Quit Festival for the last 8 years and he has participated as a celebrity quiltmaker since the beginning of our November auctions.
John is biking to fight MS this Saturday.
John is the kind of guy who will give you the shirt off his back. Literally. He sent me his shirt! (I asked for it because I had this great idea of making a Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilt out of it.) Embarrassingly, I ran out of time.
If you donate to John’s cause your name will go into a hat for a chance to win a quilt by John Flynn. After John pulls the ticket for the quilt, he’ll pick the lucky winner who gets the shirt of his back.
Go John, GO!
3. The Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative is gearing up for Houston and it’s time to ask for volunteers to work the booth. We need six people for each time slot and more “in reserve” on our Text Brigade when we get slammed with customers. If you can help, read more on the AAQI Update Blog.
