Quilts of Valor
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
I know that many of you enjoy making quilts for friends, family and donation. Below is a link to their website where you can learn about today’s activities as well as other chances to assist our Veterans throughout the year.
As you can see from the title, today is a sewing day for the Quilts of Valor. Members and non-members alike are invited to join.

If you haven’t done so yet, consider donating to this or a similar charity. Often, I look to my local community as well to give to those that live in my area.
No matter if you actually participate in the online event, or spend a bit of time sewing Red-White and Blue quilts, the feeling is the same. By supporting our Veterans and through them, our Country, we exhibit our pride in this great nation we live in.
