We Need Your Vote!

February 2, 2014

As you know, Quilts Beyond Borders which provides quilts to orphans and needy children around the world where the warmth of a quilt is needed at night, and many of you have participated by making beautiful quilts that you’ve contributed to that effort.

We’ve recently applied for a small business grant from Fed Ex which, if we are one of the winners, will give us somewhere between $1000 and $25,000. We will spend any prize money on supplies and shipping to get more quilts to more children. As you know, we have no paid staff, and rely on all volunteer work and donations.

Please go to this link and vote for us! You can vote every day. And please share this post with your friends. Your vote will help to keep a needy child from shivering in the cold at night! Thank you!
