Some of you may know my friend Carol from her blog Naturally Carol. Carol lives in Queensland, Australia. Fortunately, Carol and her family have been spared any harm from the waters of the Queensland floods. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people must rebuild their lives after losing their homes, their businesses, their livelihoods... the lives they had built for themselves.
In response to the flooding in Carol's beloved Australia, she has put out A Call for Cushions. She is collecting handmade pillows for flood-affected people and families in Queensland. It may seem like a small thing, but when someone has lost everything, a piece of "home", a handmade gift, a small gesture can brighten even the darkest of days.

I have committed to sending two pillows to Carol. Please think before you say, "I don't have time right now." This doesn't have to happen "right now". It will be months before many people will have a place to call home again. If you can just commit to making one pillow in the next two to three months, imagine the little ray of sunshine that it will bring to a family, to help restart their lives.

Please put this on your to-do list. You will never regret it.
