Di Barrong, founder of Bags of Love, spoke about this organization she started to help children in need.  Bags and “butterfly” blankets are made and filled with goodies for children 0-17 yrs old.  She is always looking for volunteers as well as sewers of bags and blankets.  She left flyers of her organization and patterns of the butterfly blanket to share.
