Help Us Find A New Name

Photo: Angel Anita is sending 3 of her quilts out!  I feel so blessed to know so many wonderful people!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.Photo: Another quilt from Angel Anita...isn't she awesome?  All of my quilting angels are amazing awesome!

First let me say, my knowledge of Quilting terms is limited. . . but off the top of my head ~
~Layers of Hope~
~A Binding of Hearts~
~ Quilts of Compassion~
~Quilts to Comfort~
Feel free to mix and match, rearrange or disregard.

Why not the simple:
Quilters Care
Quilting 911
Fabric Hugs

Great idea by the way. Hope you can find a name that works for you soon.
