Paying it Forward

One of our volunteers, Nora, received this lovely email from Linda of FeltedBagLady, which touched all of our hearts. Linda wrote:

Nora, You are probably very busy with the Haiti site but I thought I would share a story with you. I am always creating, but one of my favorite things to make are Moravian Star Christmas ornaments, and have sold them for a number of years.

At the end of January I received a check from a longtime client who had not placed an order with me this year. She sent me a check "in appreciation" of her family enjoying my stars each year.

I was so touched but didn't feel right about keeping the check so I decided to "pay it forward". I found your Haiti site and purchased three pair of red drop earrings to give as Valentine gifts.

I believe everyone came out a winner ... and I feel really good!



  1. Linda, what a heart warming story, thank you so much for sharing!

  2. this kind of things just give you the strenght and enthusiasm to keep on going and believe in mankind and solidariety..thanks Linda, best wishes to you!

  3. Oh I love that! What a generous spirit flowing through these people!
