BookCrossing has given me the ability to share my love of books with complete strangers, something I'd never considered doing before. Each time I set a book free, I feel like I'm giving a gift to someone that not only doesn't know they're going to receive it, but doesn't, and probably won't ever, know me. What a great way to share!
The Linus Connection is a small group of women in Central Texas that give their time and talents to create quilts and blankets for children in crisis. It is an organization that requires no dues or signatures, only dedication. Since becoming a part of TLC over 2 years ago, I've gained a huge amount of personal satisfaction in knowing that my ability to create is being appreciated by children in need. Even though I'll never see my blankets in the hands of those children, the thank you notes and feedback we receive makes it all worthwhile.
