"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Good Egg Blog Hop and a Good Egg in Australia

Definition Good Egg:
–noun; Informal.
a person who is pleasant, agreeable, or trustworthy; a good person.

Sandi at a Legacy of Stitches is hosting a fun spring giveaway/blog hop:" Hoppin' down the Bunny Trail and a visit to a whole bunch of Good Eggs!"

She is looking for participants now that would like to list their blog and offer a give away. Then, from March 24 to March 28 we all get to "Hop" from blog to blog, visit each of her "Good Eggs" and enter their giveaways.

Doesn't that sound like fun?


Good Egg:

a person who is pleasant, agreeable, or trustworthy; a good person.

Dawn Hay  in Australia is a good egg too..... A friend of hers has gone to work as a missionary and serve the people of Baseco, Manila, Philippines. The people who live in Baseco live an impoverished life.

Dawn was touched by the story of the Baseco people and she wanted to do something to help.
Dawn is offering a pattern for this gorgeous bag for sale in her Etsy shop. ALL of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go to help the people of Baseco through Mark and Christine Pedder.
She will be showing a list on her blog of those who have bought a pattern.

Dawn wants to sell 1000 patterns.
 Blog about it!

1000 patterns is:

10 new homes or medicine for 1000 children.
Or Emegency relief kits, or Emergency medical kits...the list goes on.
Read here what happens over there.

So, be a good egg and buy a pattern from Dawn to help the people of Baseco.
It is an e-file that you will receive almost immediately, and the cost is minimal at $4.20 USD.
Help Dawn reach her goal.

THEN you can enjoy visiting some other good eggs, and maybe even win a prize for yourself!
