We are an online quilt guild donating quilts to children around the world. Our motto: "Keeping the World Warm - One Quilt at a Time"
Saturday, October 3, 2009
Rotaplast has been in Philippines this week. Pictures haven't shown many quilts. It doesn't ever get very chilly there, and I think quilts will be used mostly to lie upon rather than lie under. I'm sure they are just as appreciated. Let's keep sewing!
Sunshine Quilters Online Guild makes quilts for children and teens all around the world. We work with two programs: Wrap-A-Smile and Wrap Them in Love.
Wrap-A-Smile is part of a Rotary program called Rotaplast. Rotaplast sends volunteer medical teams worldwide to perform free cleft lip/cleft palate surgery on children. After surgery each child gets a quilt to warm up in and to keep.
Wrap Them in Love is a quilt donation program headquartered in Mt. Vernon, Washington. Wrap Them in Love is an official 501(c)3 non-profit organization. They send quilts to orphanages worldwide. To go to their website, click on their url under Links below.
Quilts are collected on a continuous basis. Both programs send quilts regularly; the need is on-going.
We welcome new members at any time, and encourage everyone to share the love, warmth, and fun of quilting for others!
We do a monthly block lotto.. half the blocks are donated to Sunshine for children's quilts. The other half is given to a winner whose name is drawn at the end of the month. For details, please post a comment at this blog or send an email to the address listed below in Updates to Blog.
