Old Mother Hubbard

The IBOL Guy has some really powerful contacts. For example, he knows Old Mother Hubbard and Agent 51. Mother Hubbard is gathering shoes and clothing and school supplies and toiletries and even a few toys to distribute among some deserving orphans in Iraq. Agent 51 is overseeing the distribution of all the goodies. Oh yes, the US Postal Service is helping out too. ;- )

I was able to get just a glimpse of some of the things Old Mother Hubbard is sending. Look at this darling doll made by kwilt4u:

I managed to slip a couple of bags of marbles into one box too.

The orphans will receive their surprises before the end of Ramadan if everything goes according to plan. It feels so good to reach out in love to those in need.


  1. I wondered what he was up to with that one ... I was too late to be in the first 10 or so. Lovely little doll!

    Did you see his latest post? SO many new comments and SO many boxes in the truck!!!

  2. Boy the word has really gotten around about this in the last day or two. I got a message forwarded from another friend after i got yours. It looks like there will be a huge response.

  3. I loved your post and your goodies, Sue... and you nailed it with your last sentence! YES!

  4. LOVE the doll and bags of marbles...some clever, thinking woman here and some totally delighted children over there!
