  1. I just heard of your wonderful blog through our Relief Society President. This is fabulous--so uplifiting, encouraging, and informative! Thank you for spending the time and taking the efforts to put this together. I will put things together to donate for Shade Tree. Is it okay if items are in used but good condition? Thanks again,
