As an online store we can’t easily set up donations of charity quilts. I know many of you already do wonderful work in your community helping those less fortunate that you. I receive dozens of newsletters from guilds across Canada and hear stories of you making Linus quilts, place mats for Meals on Wheels recipients in your community or preemie quilts, to name just a few projects.
It needs to be fairly broad-reaching; in other words not an organization or shelter or support group that is only local to your community — our customers live coast to coast to coast and we’d like to include all of you! Tell us of the causes that matter to you.
The options below are quite general and not specific to a particular organization just yet. I want to narrow the area first, then zero in on an actual charity. But, please — if you are involved with a great organization, let me know! I really want to find groups that are not on the United Way list and don’t currently receive much, if any, government funding.
We’ll leave the poll up for 2 weeks — then report back on the results. Hopefully there will be some consensus — and we can take the next step of narrowing the search to one organization that we at Flare Fabrics, along with our quilting customers, can take pride in supporting.
Feel free to add your own ideas, organizations and suggestions. Add them here as a comment to this post, or send us an email.
