Quilts for Royal Family Kids Camp

Royal Family Kids is a Christian-led organization that exists to transform communities by interrupting the cycles of neglect, abuse, and abandonment of children in the foster care system. Their mission provides an array of programs, all directed toward changing the trajectory of young lives.  The kids camp specifically focus on making moments matter and lets the kids be…kids!
It was my privilege to coordinate the Quilts Beyond Borders donation of quilts for the children attending one of the Royal Family Kids camps held in Iowa in July 2019. Darcy Cowan, the camp director, said the quilts were distributed as part of their ‘welcome to camp’ gift.  Darcy sent some sweet pictures of a few of the recipients, shown below (Note:  Pictures of  the children can only be shared if altered for privacy purposes. You can still see the smiles and delight from receiving their own quilt).  All 46 campers were thrilled with their quilts and so excited to learn they could take them home!
As Darcy said, “All your hours of cutting, sewing and stitching are worth it for these kids.  Their lives are changed, their hearts are comforted.”
Quilters, what a difference we can make in these lives and lives of all the others who receive our quilts!  Thank you, thank you, thank you to each of you, for being part of Quilts Beyond Borders and touching children in a special comforting way.
And… pictures of all the quilts sent to the Iowa Royal Family Kids camp are below:
