A different kind of blog

I am going to write a different blog today. There will be no stitching updates. I wanted to share a very special little girl with you. This is my granddaughter Drew. Her photo was in our local paper today. She raised $420 to buy Canine kits for police dogs. She dyed her hair pink and then shaved it all off to raise $200 for cancer. She has also adopted ,through World Vision, a little girl from Africa. When her parents told her she was old enough to get an allowance she told them she did not need the money and wanted to use the money to adopt a little girl instead. Drew is an only child and on her maternal side is also an only grandchild and niece. She is one of the most giving and unselfish children I have ever known. I am not just bragging because she is my granddaughter. I just wanted to acknowledge how truly wonderful she is. I hope you agree.

I certainly agree Kathy. How wonderful to have such a grand-daughter with such a big heart and giving spirit.
Congrats to her and to you :)

Kathy,

There was another story in the Community Press with a different picture. In this one the police dog is giving her a big kiss. I'll save it for you.
