Helping Veterans – One Quilt At A Time
I'm Lainie Brooks from the B-n-B Morning Show on K-98.5. For those of you that don't know, I'm a HUGE news junkie. On occasion, I need a break from all of the crazy turmoil of the world. One of my favorite ways to unwind is to watch uplifting and inspiring videos.
The other day I found this really cool video on the website called GodVine.com and I thought I'd pass it along.The video tells the story of a veteran who loves to quilt and how she is now inspiring others to make quilts for veterans.
The Veterans name is Melissa Scarborough Allred. One day Melissa uploaded a picture of an American flag inspired quilt that she was working on to her Facebook page. There was a huge response. Everybody wanted the pattern. All of the positive feedback gave Melissa great idea. She would give out her quilting pattern, but only to people that promised to make a quilt to a veteran.
Here's the video of Milissa's story and how she helped veterans around the country one quilt at a time.
