We had a speaker at our guild meeting yesterday. Amy Allen is the founder of Global Change, Inc., which is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide safe, clean water and basic sanitation to people living in extreme poverty throughout our world. Amy organized a Global Quilt Project and asked quilters all over the world to donate quilt blocks. She received hundreds and is still accepting them. Amy wanted our guild members to help design the first quilt that will be auctioned for World Toilet Day. She also asked if we could put some of the other blocks together for her so the quilts could be sold at a later time.
