What about Wednesday?

Hello! Glad you stopped by.

Today's topic on what about Wednesday is about a few organizations that most of us are familiar with but perhaps you haven't visited their websites. So here are some that you should really take a look at and see if perhaps you can make a difference in a child's life.

The first one is . This wonderful program makes a dream come true for a terminally ill child. Make sure to click on the local events box and see what is going on in your area.

And who hasn't heard of St. Judes Children's Research Hospital
I love the idea that no child is turned away.

Another one that offers help at no charge is the Shriner's Hospitals . This great organization helped out my nephew who was born with a huge birth mark that covered the entire right side of his face.

The last one I will list today is one that was a great help to me 30 years ago. I had a premie and they took care of the balance of the hospital bills that our insurance did not pay. It is March of Dimes .

There are many more wonderful organizations and these are just a few.

Another way to get involved and help out is to watch for local deserving organizations that are having a benefit. If they are having a silent auction donate an item. Our local women's shelter has a benefit dinner every year and they almost always have a silent auction. You get to help out by donating a quilt or tote or whatever items you make with the added benefit of getting your name or company name out there. What better publicity than to be known as a giver.


  1. It's a good feeling to know that something you made has served two purposes - one to raise money for a good cause and the other to provide something useable for the buyer/winner.
