Then we went to Ogden House, a shelter for teens in need. Some of the teens helped us unload the trunk and carry the quilts into the facility.
The quilts were placed on the big table so that they would be easy to see and find the one that spoke to them.
A few of the teens were willing to pose with their quilt, faces concealed of course for privacy and safety.
Even the staff commented on how lovely the quilts are. I totally agree. There were some big smiles on some faces when we left. And I don't mean just mine. Of course I was smiling too - some of the guys had gone back to playing cards and one of them had his quilt wrapped around him. It was clear that he loved it.
Yeah, I may have had the biggest smile.
Oh...I almost forgot. There was a drawing for prizes for people who contributed quilts. We had teens do the drawing (yes these were the bravest for the camera even though their backs were to the camera.
I am thinking my back should have been to the camera too. LOL. We left in the "bloopers" mainly because I was tired when I was editing the video.
