Have you heard about the basics charity challenge?
It's based around a simple concept... help others.
I was raised in a family that taught volunteering from day one. My mom was, and still is, always doing things for other people. She taught me that when I didn't have money to donate that I could always give my time. For example... I'm a quilter & not a garment sewer... but once a year I give a day to help alter dresses as a part of Fairy Godmothers. When I have money to donate I do... but I always donate my time.
Cara of CaraQuilts was recently inspired by a simple sign. She could have gone about her day and forgot it but instead she decided to do something about it. The result is "The basics charity challenge."
Please head over to Cara's blog to read her story that inspired this challenge. Her post also goes over the details of the prizes you could win that she has gathered from bloggers like myself in an effort to encourage you to join us in helping others.
