Just Fight Quilt for Ally


A youngster in our community was involved in a serious accident a month ago and has been in the intensive care unit of the children's hospital. The other day she moved to the rehab unit there. Her parents are not working -- they are away from their jobs, spending their days supporting their daughter. The community has rallied to provide a fund to assist the parents during this time and to help with medical costs. The mantra "Just Fight" is everywhere in Near Philadelphia.

Fundraising events are happening and more are planned. I had pieced this top a couple of years ago and recently had the machinist quilt it. I've donated it to the Just Fight fundraising effort for them to raffle.

What a wonderful quilt that now has a wonderful purpose. Wishing Ally a complete recovery and I wish all the best to her family.

Bless you for blessing others with the lovely quilts you've imagined into reality!

Isn't this snowstorm astonishing?

Hugs!

So sad, but it is a good thing that the community is coming together.

Nancy, if someone wanted to buy a raffle ticket, how could he/she do that?
Is there a website?
