Sternenbrücke ... Let me explain

A rare opportunity.

"Sternenbrücke" could be translated to mean "bridge to the stars". For hundreds of families with terminal children, this hospice is a happy, helpful, healing place.

Many, many members of the klickundblick.de community and other German sewing forums have set up charity auctions to benefit "Sternenbrücke", a hospice for children. Many of the sellers in these auctions only very rarely sell anything. They put so much love, detail and work into each piece, that their things only go to friends and family. Now is a chance to have these items for your child and also benefit a beautiful organization for children and their families during their toughest months, days, hours and minutes.

Now, a note to my American Ebay friends, some of these ladies may not have the photography and photo editing skills that are de rigueur on Ebay.com, but don't let that hold you back from purchasing some of the most beautifully made clothes in the world.

Sabine even has a 10-piece set up. Ten. Count them. Even a fully lined winter coat. I see each of these items of clothing as hugs we can give our children to wear each day and with which we can be so thankful that we have not heard the words, "There is nothing more we can do for your child."

I will gladly help with any communications.
