Baby Smiling in Back Seat, from her post on bedrest in the hospital, wrote: "I'd like to donate some pottery for the raffle. The ones I have in mind are two large bowls that match and nest one into the other, serving size or mixing size if you're making a large recipe. I didn't throw those bowls (I can't make things that big yet!) but I did glaze them. Retail value is at least $100, probably more."

As a nation we seem to be valuing each other's talents and abilites more than ever. Purchasing has taken a back seat. Bartering finally got to ride shotgun. And so, I call out to you -my local community, our ALI community, your family and your friends - appealing to your considerable skills.
Do you have an item, whether large or small, valuable or symbolic, you could offer?
Asking for help isn't my most developed skill. Know that I trust you explicitly to do it. But I must for I have a responsibility to the familes we serve and the ones that will join us in sadness.
Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for your support. Because You Give - We Share.
