—this is a note I recieved from Cindy at ConKerr Cancer.
I have great news and we need your help!L’Oréal Paris has chosen me as a 2008 Women Of Worth award winner. This award is in recognition of ConKerr Cancer’s work in bringing smiles to sick children around the world. I am honored and humbled to be recognized by L’Oreal and know that it reflects the extraordinary work of our regional coordinators and thousands of caring volunteers. Most of all, I believe it is a tribute to the courageous children and families who are bravely facing life changing illnesses each day.In 2006, the L’Oreal created Women Of Worth – a grassroots program and award to honor women who serve others in their communities. Each year the program selects ten honorees from around the country. Also, one honoree will be selected by public vote and recognized as the National Woman Of Worth Honoree and her charity will receive a donation of $25,000 from L’Oréal Paris.Winning the National Woman Of Worth award would mean so much to ConKerr Cancer. This international recognition could help us bring smiles to even more children in even more hospitals in even more places. Moreover, the award would enable us to purchase fabric, sewing machines and supplies to take to the hospital to sew with the children and their families. (Not to mention defraying the many other expenses that go with running an all volunteer, global organization as large as ConKerr Cancer!).To vote go to http://www.womenofworth.com/ and help ConKerr Cancer win $25,000! Voting runs from November 10 and November 24, 2008. I would appreciate you passing this on to all of your friends.Thank you so much,Cindy Kerr http://www.conkerrcancer.org/
This is the easiest greatest way to make pillowcases. All my family gets a new one for every Holiday. They still act surprised and excited. Possibly they are excited to have a clean pillowcase. Excuse the long instructions. you just have to make one to believe it. It is truly magic!! Plus a good way to use up fabric and buy more!
Picture above are a few of the pillowcases we just sent to Richland Sewing Center who collects them for Cook Childrens hospital. ( thanks to ducky, outlaw, pat, chelair, carolyn and everyone else that made pillowcases)
Now go VOTE for Cindy!
