A dear friend of mine, Samantha of The Handmade Dress, has family members in need. Her brother-in-law and his family lost everything in the Alabama tornadoes last evening. They lost their home and all contents, and both of their cars. They are all well. But, they do have needs.
Samantha's sister-in-law was 39 weeks pregnant, last evening...as of a few minutes ago, they have a new healthy baby.
So...I'm hosting a virtual baby shower. The proceeds for all patterns purchased through Mother's Day will go to them as well as all donations made to a special paypal account for this purpose firstname.lastname@example.org Make sure you donate as a gift to save on paypal fees. If you haven't used paypal before, email me for directions.
Please feel free to share this with others, as they'll need lots of help.
