Quilts Recover Launch

I just stumbled upon this great way for quilters to be able to donate new quilts to people who have been affected by recent disasters. Any quilter's interested in donating new quilts to a great cause, please check out the link: Quilts Recover.

"Naptime Quilter" is from Calgary and has started a wonderful program to get quilts to people who have suffered from recent disasters. As she puts it, "Quilts Recover is about providing just one bit of comfort during that rebuilding process. Quilts Recover is quilters providing finished quilts to communities ravaged by disaster."

As Naptime quilter explains, the first target community is Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada. Earlier this month, May, a wildfire swept through the town of about 7000 people. Nearly half the homes and businesses were destroyed, utterly consumed by the fire. People are only returning to their homes now. Quilts Recover will provide as many quilts as possible to families rebuilding their lives in Slave Lake.

Please check it out, and donate a quilt if you can!
