    I find it extraordinary that lionbrand is putting charity out there, It comes at a time when I am trying to teach my ten year old daughter Victoria the principles of pay it forward and random act of kindness. She and I are working on afghans for the afghans for angel charity as our crafting with kids AND charity project.
