Science with a Mission

Quilt Show

 

 

 

 

 

One of my first Fundraiser projects was for Science with a Mission, a non-profit organization started by my friend, Alynne MacLean. Half of the sell price for this bracelet went to Science with a Mission.

 

I've listened to Alynne talk about how this all started and her journey to start SMI many times. It never gets old.

 

SMI recently reached the point where they have sent over 200,000 test kits to the needy in over 62 countries all over the world.

 

But the best way to know Alynne is to listen to this video that was on a local TV station recently.

 

 

 

 

Please take time to listen to this video

 

 

Alynne is a member of our local church, Covenant Congregational Church of North Easton. The church and many of the members, even me, come up with various ways to help Alynne and SMI raise money. We have a Live auction in May and now, this Saturday, March 24, we have a Quilt Show. This is the 7th year for the Quilt Show and it is amazing to see over 50 quilts spread out over all the pews in the church. For the 7 years, none of the quilts have been repeated.

 

In one of Alynne's recent newsletters she shows how anyone, of any age, can help. Alynne patiently teaches anyone who wants to learn, how to help make the tests for SMI

 

 

This year Ring by Ring Designs will be donating several of our pieces to the Quilt Show and the Auction being held Saturday, May 5 at 6:30 PM at the Covenant Congregational Church of North Easton.

 

This is a picture of some of the many quilts desplayed last year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have any questions about SMI, you can go to their website www.sciencewithamission.org or ask me. I'll find out if I don't  know.

 

 

 

Until this Friday's special and next week,

 

Bev
