Georgia Magazine - January 2011 - (Page 7)

A blessing What a blessing the article that Sarah Bakhtiari wrote [see Georgia News, “Dolls of hope,” September 2010, page 8] has been already. As of early September, several calls had already come in with cash donations and donated materials such as fabric, stuffing, etc. for the dolls we make. You have been mightily used of the Lord on behalf of the children in Haiti! —Gwen Lord, founder, Eppie Everywhere Foundation,Waleska Picture this? Guess where this is and you could Win $25! Another group honoring veterans In your October 2010 issue you wrote an excellent article regarding restoration of World War II planes and the honoring of veterans. [See “Restoring warplanes and honoring veterans,” page 28.] In Augusta there is an organization called Vets To Washington. For the past several years, this group has been taking busloads of veterans to visit all the memorials in Washington, D.C., and basically at no expense to them. Our World War II veterans are disappearing rapidly. These trips inspire in them joy and awe when they are able to visit the memorials that represent their participation in the events that brought forward our Greatest Generation of Americans. I believe articles on these trips and some of the experiences of these veterans would make a wonderful series in your magazine. —P.C. Santos, Augusta We welcome your letters. See page 6 for submission information.
