Seedlings of Change
January 22, 2011

I first heard of Seedlings of Change through my sister, Joan Douma.
After reading Seedlings Mission Statement and investigating further, I signed on.
Seedlings of Change, under the guidance of Eveline contantly moves forward to touch people around the globe with many different projects.
We began work on the Global Harmony Quilt and asked for small bits of fabric from around the world. We were amazed at the response and interest and this beginning lead to the discovery of various other projects touching the world.
A couple of examples:
A group of quilters making quilts and donating them for the soldiers injured in the war.
A lawyer in a 3rd world country setting up a program to teach women who had been taken from their families and when they escaped, were not welcome back into the villages. A place was formed with a teacher to teach sewing. When the time was over, they got $100, a sewing machine, and fabric.
These 2 examples are just a part of the type of work that Seedlings of Change is in the midst of. Eveline constantly searches for more ways of bettering our world, one person or group at a time.
Seedlings of Change is a gift to all.
