Quitl For Kids

Help make a difference in the lives of children in need. Your purchase will enable Quilt For Kids, a non-profit charity, to wrap children, who are fighting a life battle with an illness or abuse, in a handmade patchwork quilt. Quilt For Kids Inc. has been comforting children in need since 2000. They produce about 30,000 quilts annually and donate them to children in need across the globe. A Letter from the Founder It seems like only yesterday that I discovered a wealth of discontinued fabric samples being thrown away. In those days it never occurred to me that we’d be an international organization today. I was only looking to save some fabric samples from a landfill. I was assured by all my friends and family that this was a dumb idea and no one would make quilts for some stranger’s child…and do it for free! Well, 14 years later you have managed to prove these nay-sayers wrong, for you have given from your hearts and helped to turn tears into smiles for tens of thousands of children that you never even knew existed. Our goal continues to be donating 30,000 yearly. When most fabric mills moved offshore in 2007, those wonderful 18 wheelers loaded with donated fabric were not coming our way any longer. We were forced to find funding to purchase fabric. The fabric companies that had always supported us gave us reduced prices when they could and sent us discontinued samples to enable us to continue comforting children in need. Even the heavyweight fabrics have become quilts that are sent overseas to orphaned children in developing countries who use them as beds. We are proud to continue our work with Lutheran World Relief. Thank you for helping them turn tears to smile in the children the seeks to comfort. For more information go to www.quiltforkids.org or email them at info@quiltforkids.org
