Be a Hero and (maybe) Win a Gorgeous Quilt!

Dana is organizing a Red Cross fund drive for the benefit of tornado victims.  Donate via Old Red Barn Co to have a chance to win her stunning quilt!

All proceeds donated via Dana's site will go directly to the American Red Cross.  Now, there are a LOT of worthy charities out there, but think back to all of the disaster-relief photos you've ever seen:  I bet the only folks you've ever seen onsite immediately following a disaster are these folks.  When my neighbors' house burned down a few years ago, a representative from the American Red Cross was here within an hour, bearing gift certificates and offering other assistance so my neighbors could buy clothing and have a roof over their heads.  I'm partial to this organization also because they used to make me feel like a hero (and feed me killer sandwiches) just for laying still for 15 minutes.  (I'm not allowed anymore, I'm a Mad Cow risk due to Junior Year Abroad in college; but I was a 5-gallon donor by the time they banned my donations.)

Go to Dana's  and help those folks please.  Worst case, you're a hero; best case, you get to snuggle with Dana's amazing starry quilt!
