Gratitude for Our Members

We received a special donation recently, from our junior member. Did you know that young people can join the guilds at Seattle Children's Hospital as Junior Members? They can, and they are able to make a great impact, as we know from the fabulous work by the Pink Polka Dots Guild, among others!

If you know any young people who might like to join our guild, please let us know - they are very welcome indeed!

Our guild has one junior member, and her name is Briana. She and her mom recently donated 2 beautiful fleece blankets which Briana and her friend Abby made (double sided and knotted):
Aren't they cozy and cheerful? We so appreciate Briana's time, talent and generosity.
Thank you, Briana, Mary and Abby!

While I was delivering the quilts, I had the opportunity to walk down the hall in the hospital where all of the endowment plaques are posted. 
Here is Katie's Endowment's plaque, in case you haven't seen it. 
It makes me proud to see it there - 
proud and GRATEFUL
 to those who have generously donated to support cancer research in Katie's memory. Great progress is being made at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research through Seattle Children's Hospital, and Katie's endowment supports this work.
