Quilt Donation

With a lot of help from Christina Smith and a Relief Society Group in Utah, the Young Women were able to complete 25 beautiful island style quilts for the Hemodialysis Center.

It was sweet to walk through the current Dialysis Unit while some of the patients were being treated. I wish we would have stayed and chatted with them, but we were just walking through, quilts in hand, and while doing so we heard a soft but excited voice ask, "Are those for us?"

Thanks again to all of those who participated in the project. And a special thanks to Sis. Smith*

Click here to read the Saipan Tribune article. And here for the Mariana's Variety article that appears on their home page. Christina Smith wrote a great Press Release that was published in the Tribune, but the Variety made a little whoops and gave Cassie Nelson all of the unearned credit for Sis. Smith's quotes, but we do appreciate them taking the time to publish the articles. And thank you, whoever you are, for the really nice comment under the MV article:

"What a very generous gesture from the Latter-Day Saints youth! That's just what we need in this world. Random acts of kindness. :)"

Wonderful! I would love for my son to do some type of Eagle project that entails helping those in Saipan, since I am Chamorro. :) You all are great role models!!!
