It’s time to say a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who took part in our joyous journey of hope, who with contributions, prayers, support and caring helped to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. The lucky winners of the two blankets are Ina Atkinson of the Free State (the Ellinor blanket) and Ida Mac Donnell of Gauteng (the Lise blanket). But… watch this space… we’ll be back soon with more stories of hope, and another chance to build a better future, one block at a time.
