Lutheran World Relief 2013 Quilt Campaign

Lutheran World Relief Quilt Donations

Imagine 486,000 quilts donated to be distributed around the world.  What an impressive campaign Lutheran World Relief  ran in 2013 (so close to their goal of 500,000)!  The quilts are starting to be being distributed in 16 countries around the world to those in need due to war, disaster and poverty.  What a fabulous way to make a tangible, heartfelt gesture of comfort. In times of conflict and after natural disasters there are many immediate needs that aid organizations and governments try to address. A quilt given in this situation might not curb hunger, quench thirst or deal with disease, but it serves the same purpose it does when you give a family member a quilt – a visual and physical reminder that someone cares, a literal symbol of the extension of a helping hand. Quilters are so generous of their time and creative efforts. Bravo to Lutheran World Relief for harnessing that power and sharing it with the world. For more information on this project and to learn how to donate a quilt or help with shipping costs, visit their website Lutheran World Relief Quilt Campaign 2013.  We have added this project to our list of quilt related charity projects under the tab Get Involved!
