Hey, guys, this is more of a shout out to my fellow Craftsters than an actual project, although I did help sew lots of drawstring bags. I wanted y'all to be able to see it, so I put it here. Hope that's ok, mods!

I was blessed to be able to participate last week in doTerra's successful attempt to set a world record of Days for Girls kits assembled in one hour (that's assembled- not sewn. The sewing- which was the part I helped with- was all done before the attempt). And we did it! The record is now 5110 kits! So awesome!  Anyway, as I was sewing and threading ribbons, Celeste Mergens (the founder of DfG) came in to talk to us!!  I got to meet her and told her about how the fantastic and generous souls on Craftster were my first introduction to her program and that so many of you have given of your time and means and talents to help girls globally!

She asked me to pass on her most sincere thanks for all that you have done and continue to do!

CRAFTSERS ARE AMAZING! Honestly, you all are some of the most loving and giving folks I've ever had the pleasure to be associated with!!

 That is so cool. It's amazing that we have so many wonderful people on here who are so helpful and giving. We really do have an amazing community. DfG is such an fantastic organization that makes such a difference.
 It's also super cool that you participated in a Guinness World Record event!

I have always bragged about the many generous craftster members that do the nicest things not only for their own communities but for others as well, including around the world!

I once tried to make a list of all of the charities and organizations that everyone participated in but the list was way to long to keep up!

Quilt for Kids, Linus Project, homeless shelters, women's shelters, animal shelters, elderly assistance, knitted knockers, cancer awareness, autisim awareness....on and on and on!!!!

I also want to shout out to you, bunny, for bringing your talents to Craftster and making us aware of how we can use our time and talent to help others.  Can I just say it?  WE ROCK!!!!  lol

Thanks for your post...it made my day in a positive way...and congrats on the record!!! WOW!

My part in the record was honestly tiny, all things considered.
But it was so cool to feel included in something so wonderful!!

Thank you for your kind words, AIMR! And yeah, Craftsters are THE BEST! I love how we all pull together and work not only in our own families and communities, but to care for each other. I have seen so much love and support poured out on our little Craftster family when we struggle as individuals. We "mourn with those that mourn and comfort those that stand in need of comfort". It's inspiring and empowering!

No matter how crazy the world gets, keeping that little spark of humanity alive makes it a better place!
