PBS Member of the Month

April G. (tailyanker)

April is one of those wonderful people who bring light into the lives of all around her! She created the “Share and Care Tailyghan” program in the “Share and Care” forum here at PBS – when she learns of someone having a difficult time she sends them a care package, including a hand-crafted “Tailyghan” (afghan).   Many members wrote in about April:

“I couldn’t believe that she made me an afghan. It really brightened my day!”

“She is such a sweet lady who makes lapghans for members going through some crisis.  She does this at her own expense. Truly worthy of the honor of MOM.  I cannot think of anyone who deserves it more.”

“Tailyanker cares so much about other people.  People like her make PBS more than a club – it’s like a family.”

Sometimes it really matters to know that someone cares and is thinking about you. I am reminded of that every time I look at the handmade afghan from April.  It’s a blanket but it means so much more.”

April, you and your afghans have brought so much warmth into the lives of other members.  You are our Member of the Month for August.  Congratulations!
