One Interactive Read. If America had six political parties, which one would you fall into? A quiz.

Last week, I asked you to help fill three kitchen kits for World Relief Spokane, and the refugees being resettled in Spokane.  You filled them in four hours.  So I put up three more.  You filled them in two hours.  So I put up two more.  Everything was gone in 45-minutes.

I am so overwhelmed by your generosity.  These are just some of the dozens of boxes that were delivered this week.  I am in the process of opening, sorting, cataloguing, and delivering every kit.  (And then recycling all of this cardboard.)

You have made a real impact for eight refugee families who will receive fully stocked kitchens on their arrival.  They’ll cook their meals, feed their children, and celebrate life events with pots, plates and flatware you donated.  It’s a small gesture in the grand scheme of things, but to these families will mean so much.
