Apron Angels for Disaster Victims in Missouri

Hi ladies,

My dear friend and swap participant, Lucy, is gathering aprons to distribute in her community. Here's the info from her post on Sassy Apron Swap. Please consider making an extra apron and sending one to a sister in pain as a gesture of friendship.

"Ladies, The community I live in was hit very hard by tornadoes on May 10. Many of my friends and neighbors were left homeless or suffered severe damage to their homes.

The Red Cross and other organizations have been working hard to help them with food, clothing, and the resources to rebuild.

I am making a call to all the Apron Angels that have contacted me (or wanted to contact me) with offers to send aprons to those that needed them. I would love to be able to send an apron to as many of these women as possible to send them a message of hope and love.

They don't need donations of clothing and such right now because the community is seeing to those needs. This donation is one of the heart from one woman to another.

If you would like to participate, please send me an email at byrdhouse1(at)windstream(dot)net. We would like to raise about 100 aprons and will be collecting and distributing them over the next several weeks."

I hope several of us are able to help Lucy out. Your kindness will mean so much to someone who has lost everything.



  1. Shawnee, that is great you are posting here. I sent a couple out earlier this week. Lucy is a wonderful force of nature, isn't she? What an inspiration.

  2. You make me laugh Val!! My husband will tell you I am a tornado myself bent on a path of distruction. Thank you though. That was sweet of you!
