Welcome to the Tuesday Preview.
On this week's episode I interview Lezley Zwaal - founder of Quilts of Valour - Canada. This society gives quilts to injured soldiers and veterans across Canada.
I'm so excited to feature QoV on the podcast this week for two reasons:
# 1. I have met Lezley a few times now and she has a heart of gold. She is passionate about this society and has been putting a tremendous amount of effort into it for over 8 years.
# 2. This charity is such a great cause! There are thousands of injured soldiers and veterans out there who are just at a point in their lives where they could seriously use the hug of a warm loving quilt. Just saying.
