"I do not have the funds available right now to be able to give cash, but I sew and quilt and will do or make whatever is needed for her and the babies. I am a single mother with 7 kids and no child support, but I do want to help desperately."
This was excerpted from an email I received three days ago.
Three days ago, Marlene and I had never met. Now I feel like I've known her for a long time.
Marlene, a blogger on the Chesapeake Bay, with a loving heart and a talented hand and a smart brain, was able to raise $230 in a silent auction she had on her blog over the past few days. By using her resources and her talent, people were able to bid on her beautiful handmade tote bags, and Marlene is generously donating the proceeds to help K and her family.
Three days ago, I would have never even imagine how such powerful love and kindness would manifest itself to help this little family. Now I think the sky's the limit and there's no end to what goodness might happen.
Please visit Marlene and say hello and read her own story. She knows only too well the story of domestic abuse.
Thank you, Marlene, for sharing your story and your generous heart. And to your wonderful bidders who participated in your auction... thank you.
