Generous Giving Promotes Acts of Kindness

Over the summer, we attended a large arts festival, where we entered into numerous drawings for large prize packages. Suffice that the only thing we won was telemarketing ring-a-lings that are impossible to curb. I share this to let all know that your entry into any giveaway of my promotion will not result in such harassment.

It’s always a treat to hear from a happy winner!  Thank you, Erika and quilty for brightening Caroline’s day.

“Dearest EllynAnne,
Thank you for the opportunity to join in and be a part of “Tie One On Day”.  I love selecting cheery apron prints,  stitching them up and giving them to my friends and family.
I will be watching the mails for Quilty…What a perfect gift to inspire my Chanukkah and Christmas stitching.
Many Thanks,
Double Blessings & Sweet Shalom, Caroline”

Trolling the internet for Tie One On Day advertising opportunities, I am too often distracted by the popup ads for shoe shopping. For whatever the reason, I resisted pictures of the shoes “it” knew I was looking for and stayed focused on the quest, which ended up a more perfect fit than any shoes!

As if any of us need more browsing suggestions, must say that nopatternrequired is a really fun site to explore.

With the deluge of holiday advertising and other distractions (like pop up shoe sales), Tie One On Day rises to the top because it is a genuine effort to generate gestures of kindness towards those in need. Thank you for spreading the word and the love of TOODay, because the more who participate, the more who receive!
