My wife is a great quilter and had always dreamed of having the latest, top of the line sewing machine. But it cost thousands of dollars and was quite beyond our financial reach.
So for her 60th birthday celebration, our kids and I opened a Gift Pool on GIFTPOOLIT and managed to arrange for all her friends and family from around the world, instead of buying her individual gifts, to contribute a small amount to the “Sewing Machine” fund…and within a few weeks, we had enough money to buy her the best of the best! But best of all, it was that it was a total surprise! She couldn’t believe her eyes!
Ever since then, her grandchildren and friends have been enjoying the fruit of the loom!
