I just checked Virginia Spiegel's American Cancer Society fundraiser site (http://www.virginiaspiegel.com/NewFiles/ACSFundraiser.html) and the fiber-art post card sales alone have raised $10,800.00!!!
It's quite likely that Virginia would be the LAST person to have thought this effort of hers would reach out and touch so many hearts, minds, souls, and spirits across the world. To Virginia and all those who donated art or money to the American Cancer Society fundraiser, may I offer you my heartfelt "THANK YOU!"
This is exactly the kind of inspiration that is needed by all of us - especially those who live in dread fear of cancer, terrorists, abuse, or anything else. Humanity is not represented in its worst and is much better than its best - and Virginia has offered us proof of that. She has given us a wonderful example of "the best" in humankind. And, just as important, she offers us a new model of HOPE for humankind. Virginia has proven that each individual CAN do something for the good of all, that we can do something that will result in positive major change(s). Her web-site has demonstrated that it's even easier to create the changes we most desire when other individuals join us in love to bring the dream to life.
Congratulations and blessings to us all. We have good reason to celebrate! Thanks, Virginia!!!
