Quilting for Kids
Project Linus has distributed nearly 8 million blankets over the last 25 years to seriously ill and traumatized youth ages 0-18. I first became aware of this organization when my granddaughter arrived seven weeks early and spent time in the NICU. Blankets can be quilted, knitted, or crocheted. Get more information on local chapters and being a “blanketeer” here.
Quilts for Kids was started by a quilter who was appalled by the amount of discontinued quilt fabric that was being placed into landfills. Quilts are distributed to children facing serious illness, trauma, abuse and natural disasters. Not a sewer or quilter? Don’t worry. They will ship a kit to you for just $7.
Quilting for Cancer
Quilting for Veterans
Quilts of Valor covers service members and veterans with quilts that comfort and heal. Although fabrics do not need to be red, white, and blue, that is the color combination most chosen by veterans. Check out Quilts of Valor requirements here.
If you do not want to create a quilt, you can also donate fabrics, batting, and funding to these generous non-profit organizations.
