Here are just 2 of the quilts that have been completed and are being sent for a very special delivery to Newtown communications.
I am thankful everyday for the angels who step up and donate fabric, time and talents to help others in these horrific situations. I cannot begin to tell you how these unseen heroes respond when they receive a quilt from someone they have never met who cares.
Now, I have the Facebook site still up for Aurora, however, I have been doing this for years, helping 911 dispatchers and first responders and getting them quilts, toiletries, etc.. It has worked because of all you who reach out to help.
Now, I want to set up a non-profit organization whereby I can send receipts for tax deductions to you who donate, where I can set up a storage unit filled with quilts and toiletries that are ready to go the minute we hear of a disaster or tragedy.
What I need your help with is a name.
In the past I have used 911 Quilts but it never took off. I already work with 911 Cares, so we can't use that and will continue to be a huge part of that.
So, won't you please think of a name that encompasses quilting and helping first responders so we can get set up and begin to continue to always be there for those who helop so many.
