Today begins Lent, which is a time period of 40 days before Easter. It's a designated time of reflection, soberness, "giving up", or even "adding in" something to your life in order to become closer to God.
No worries - I'm not going to preach or convert you. :)
Perhaps, though, we could all think about how to make this world better. Here at
Hip Stitch, we're quietly setting out this:
We'd like to collect $77.91 in 40 days. This amount will purchase one wheelchair to go to an individual in a developing country, who would otherwise not having any mobility.
I've always liked the expression: "Think Globally, Act Locally." I like the part that is "ACT."

(I've met Don Schoendorfer, the founder of this misson. He's pretty great.)
That's it. No preaching.
(except to request that you not give up fabric for Lent)
