We had a fun time with the fund raising event in East Prairie, MO on June 21-22. We sold root-beer floats; sodas; water; LBFOL T-shirts; KMH Design shirts, necklaces and books; face painting; colored hair stripes and raffled off several items donated by local businesses.

We had visits from several who thanked us for delivering baskets to those families they knew and for what we are doing in the community for the senior citizens and families in need.

The day after the event we delivered our 723rd Laundry Basket Full of Love and the man was very thankful. A serious request came in for a basket in another state and friend from a neighboring town heard about this and wanted to pay the shipping, so we will be getting some items boxed up and sent out this week. Also, we will be getting eight baskets ready to deliver before next weekend.

If you would like to help us bless others with a Laundry Basket Full of Love, please consider donating through PayPal or by mailing it to our address on the Contact Us page.

Thank you in advance and God bless,
