Help for the people of Joplin Missouri

My heart goes out to the people of Joplin Missouri as they sort through what is left of their city.
I received an email from Ackfield Manufacturing today and have added it to the end of this post.  They are based in Missouri, and are asking their quilting friends and business associates to send the call out for help for the people of Joplin.
Ackfield makes many wire hangers and stands for quilts, mini quilts and stitchery pieces.  
If you have a quilt you can part with, they are asking for it to be shipped to them.  As you can see these people are left with nothing.  Bad weather and tornadoes continue to batter the area.  If you can, please consider their request.  Consider also how many children are left with nothing, baby and children's quilts would be greatly helpful as well.

This man is at what used to be his mother-in-laws home sorting through the rubble.  Her entire neighborhood was leveled.

REBUILDING "ONE PATCH AT A TIME"
Ackfeld Manufacturing is collecting Quilts for the victims in Joplin...... If you have a quilt that you don't have anyone in mind for please donate to the victims of the tornado in Joplin Missouri..... If you would be so kind as to send them to us we will get them into the hands of the Red Cross. Please sign these quilts and let them know where they are coming from so that they can feel the love of the world surrounding them.... thank you all so much Skip and Peggy Ackfeld, Ackfeld Manufacturing, 360 Emerson Road, Reeds Spring, MO 65737

If your company has a facebook, web site, twitter whatever please post.  Our friends are hurting and we feel your generosity would be so appreciated.  What warmer feeling than being wrapped in a Hand Made Quilt


Thank you All
This used to be a subdivision of homes, all have been leveled.
