People of the Year

12 Dec

I was listening to world news and they had people of the year on that have done extraordinary things. The first lady is with Quilters of Peacemakers group. Her name is Dorothy Fletcher and she makes quilts for cancer patients. They put scriptures and all sorts of neat and encouring things on their quilts. Before this story aired they were doing 100 quilts a year for the past 8 years so that is 800 quilts. Since April they have made 450 quilts and the request and donations keep pouring in.

The second lady is Julia Berney she is a police officer and she donates books to children from needy familes. She wants every child to learn and enjoy how to read. She gets people from all over to donate books and money to help her continue in this act of service.

These two organizations and ladies are awesome!
